Post Office to Keep Saturday Service

Cutback had been aimed at saving money.

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.
