VAN WYCK – The Van Wyck post office survived a potential closing last year, but now faces a reduction in hours, according to the latest cost-saving plan from the U.S. Postal Service.
The Post Office Structure (POSt) Plan calls for reducing hours in 17,700 of 32,000 postal retail locations. For Van Wyck’s office, this would mean opening for four rather than eight hours on weekdays.
Last year’s proposed closure of 3,700 rural post offices was met with an outpouring of complaints from the affected communities.
