Saturday mail delivery changes coming


The United States Postal Service is ending it's Saturday First Class mail delivery in August.  The USPS estimates it will save $2 billion a year with the move.

At least one local business doesn't think it will make much of a difference.

An official at Empire Electric says they mail their bills out 21 days in advance and even with the change in postal deliveries, they don't anticipate a decrease in mail-in payments.

"We do receive a great deal of payments through the mail but don't anticipate that will affect this at all," says Amy Bass of Empire Electric.

Bass says with online payments becoming easier, she doesn't predict a change in late payments.

"I am receiving fewer and fewer things in the mail, just as we all are, and we are using the Internet for many things," says Bass.

As for the residents we spoke with, to them it simply means one less day they will see their mail carrier.
