BIBB COUNTY, Ga. (WGXA) – Congressman Sanford Bishop (D-GA-02) and Congressman Austin Scott (R-GA-08) have jointly communicated their concerns to U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and the U.S. Postal Service’s Board of Governors regarding proposed alterations to the Macon Processing and Distribution facility (Macon P&DC) located in Macon.

In a bipartisan effort, the congressmen urged the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to maintain the operation of the Macon P&DC without downsizing. This request aims to ensure the facility’s capability to process local mail promptly and deliver letters and packages on time to Middle Georgia residents.

Congressman Bishop emphasized, “The U.S. Postal Service should strive to provide the best possible service to every family and business in America, even those whose addresses are located in remote areas and rural communities.” He further noted the significance of considering the distinct challenges faced by rural Americans, especially seniors who heavily rely on USPS for critical deliveries such as bills, checks, and prescription medications.
