The announcement came over three years ago. The United States Post Office made a final decision to close the processing plant in Pocatello.
Since then, postal employees and local officials have been appealing to the post office to take the closure off the table. Monday night, one last push was made to change the minds of the USPS.
With a month to go until the closure, Pocatello Mayor Brian Blad held a public meeting to discuss and address the fate of the Flandro Drive Mail Processing Center and the 59 people the center employs.
