The United States Postal Service board of governors stated Wednesday that they will delay plans to cease mail delivery on Saturdays.
Congress has prohibited implementation of a new national delivery schedule for mail and packages, according to a statement released by the board.
In February, the Postal Service announced that it would end regular mail delivery on Saturdays beginning early August.
The move came as a cost-cutting measure, as the USPS hoped to save $2 billion annually by cutting Saturday delivery service. According to reports, the USPS lost almost $16 billion last year.
The Huntington Station Post Office was the site of a large demonstration in mid-March by postal workers opposed to the change in ours.
