Paluxy Post Office meeting set today

October 17, 2012

Paluxy Post Office customers will have another chance to discuss potential changes that may be made there when a meeting kicks off at 2:30 p.m. today.

A U.S. Postal Service (USPS) representative will be there to conduct a town hall gathering at the post office, at 9421 Paluxy Circle.

Last October, about 30 Paluxy-area residents met with USPS representative Sid Winn from Fort Worth at the Tabernacle Church in Paluxy.

The Postal Service is in the middle of a budget-reduction cycle, and has been seeking ways to cut back on hours and other major expenses for about 13,000 smaller post offices.

Officials have projected savings of half a billion dollars over two years, according to Public Information Officer Sam Bolen of the USPS Fort Worth District.

Paluxy’s Post Office (ZIP code 76467) is currently open from 8 a.m.-noon, Monday through Saturday.

Clay Summers is the lone employee, as a temporary fill-in after former Postmaster Jerry Parker retired in July.

In September, Bolen said that officials were considering reducing the hours for the Paluxy Post Office to two per day.

However, he also noted that no final decisions have been made.
