Higgins Asks for More Details From USPS After Public Hearing on Closure of William Street Mail Processing Facility

January 10, 2012 Updated Jan 10, 2012 at 12:06 PM EDT

(WKBW release) New York Congressman Brian Higgins is continuing his fight to protect the 700 jobs and services provided by the Buffalo Mail Processing Facility on William Street by requesting additional data brought to light at the public hearing the Congressman attended. 

“Hundreds of people attended the public hearing objecting to the Buffalo facility closing and those who spoke gave informative testimony on how changes in services will impact local businesses, community agencies and residents,” Higgins said in a news release. “We want to be sure that all of the valuable comments will be formally submitted into the public record and think that the information shared can help us build the argument to keep the William Street site open.” 

The Congressman is also requesting additional details on Canadian mail processed at the Buffalo Plant, which was an item discussed during the meeting, as well as details on the cost of a video shown during the hearing.
