ALBANY COUNTY — Big changes are happening within the public mail system, but despite rumors of post-office consolidations, those who rely on their local offices don’t need to worry about closures, the United States Postal Service says.

The USPS is currently building new sorting and delivery centers, which will be regional facilities where mail collected from local post offices is processed for delivery, as opposed to being sorted at each office.

Although it’s a consolidation of back-office work, use of the word “consolidation” in news articles and USPS reports to describe the change has created confusion for some residents, who associate the term with closures.
