Regulators criticize closing of Yantic Post Office

News

NORWICH, Conn. (AP) – Federal regulators are criticizing the U.S. Postal Service’s decision to close the Yantic Post Office in 2012, saying officials did not properly consider public input.

Elisabeth Shellan, a public representative for the Postal Regulatory Commission, issued a seven-page report Monday recommending the commission reconsider the closing.

The commission is scheduled to vote on the appeal on June 17.

The one-person post office served the village of Yantic in Norwich and the Stanley Israelite Business Park.

It was closed suddenly in February, 2012. The Postal Service said there were safety issues with the building and the closing would save more than $750,000 over the next decade.

Norwich officials say the post office was an integral part of the fabric of Yantic and had been making money.
