Assemblywoman Questions Feasibility Study

Questioning Mail Feasibility Study

Utica, NY (WIBX) – Assemblywoman RoAnn Destito is questioning another feasibility study on the Utica Mail Processing and Distribution Facility.

Destito says in a letter sent to residents by the U.S. Postal Service, it states the study will be conducted to consider consolidating the mail processing operation at Utica’s Pitcher Street facility into the Syracuse Mail Processing and Distribution Center.

In her own letter sent to the Postal Service, Destito is looking for answers on whether Utica would loose its postmark if consolidation takes place, whether it will take longer for mail to be delivered and whether the decision means the loss of 150 jobs in the area.

“We represent the metropolitan area, here, in the Mohawk Valley and I believe that does not send a good message for businesses and economic development that we no longer have a postmark and do not have local mail processing.”

Destito says prior feasibility studies on the Utica Mail Processing and Distribution Center showed that it is an extremely efficient operation, where workers process mail faster than the Syracuse facility.

“It simply doesn’t make sense to consider closing a facility that has an outstanding work force and a great record of worker productivity,” she said.
