Rep. Latta asks for change in mail processing location

Numerous delays in U.S. mail deliveries have prompted U.S. Congressman Bob Latta to propose a shift in processing operations from Michigan to Cleveland or Columbus.

“The local postal carriers and the people who work to deliver the mail do a great job, but unfortunately, for years, the U.S. Postal Service’s Michigan metroplex facility has failed to reliably deliver mail, including bills and vote-by-mail ballots, to residents of Ohio’s Fifth Congressional District,” Mr. Latta said last week.

He has penned a letter to Megan Brennan, USPS postmaster general and chief executive officer, to request a formal inquiry into the possibility of transferring the mail processing responsibilities for northwest Ohio from Pontiac, Michigan, to either the Cleveland or Columbus processing plants.

After the closure of the Toledo mail processing plant in 2012, a new system was arranged where mail from northwest Ohio was to be sent to the Michigan metroplex for processing and sorting, before heading to its destination.
