DENVER (CBS4)- The U.S. Postal Service is considering closing 250 mail processing facilities across the nation, including four in Colorado.

The Postal Service lost $8.5 billion last year. Now, it is trying to cut costs.

Processing centers in Alamosa, Colorado Springs, Durango and Salida will be studied to determine whether they should be shut down.

The postal service is also considering shutting down 3,700 post offices nationwide.

    WTH, our Congress will cut the Postal Service that serves and employs millions and continue to substidize Am Trak with limited ridership and employees? The Am Trak subsidy is 1.565 billion per budget year. We shouldn’t have to point these things out.

    All I get in the mail is bills and junk mail. Why not deliver on Monday, Wed. and Friday and that is all. Also increase the price of junk mailings so they either get the money to support it or don’ thave to deliver it. It all ends up in the trash anyway which is another problem. E-mail and UPS, FedEx have replaced the USPS, just face up to the truth.

      UPS and FedEx do not deliver to rural areas, which would be a problem for the elderly and others who rely on the US mail for prescription drugs and other necessities in life. Also, the cost to ship a package via FedEx/UPS is significantly higher than what the post office charges.
