Bergman displeased over postponement of USPS public meeting

WASHINGTON, D.C.— The U.S. Postal Service has postponed a public meeting in Kingsford regarding a review of operations, and Congressman Jack Bergman is not pleased.

The USPS was supposed to go over plans to shift some mail processing operations from Iron Mountain to Green Bay and receive public input Thursday afternoon, but the meeting was postponed.

U.P. lawmakers have received complaints from several sectors of the population regarding the timely delivery of mail.

Bergman says he was notified of the meeting’s postponement less than 24 hours before it was supposed to be held. He sent a letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, saying, "Failure to provide adequate notice of postponement at the very least is utterly unacceptable, and frankly, unbecoming of a federal agency.”

The entire letter can be read here.

Bergman is urging the USPS to reschedule the meeting as soon as possible.
