The public hearing concerning the proposed closing of the mail-processing plant in Augusta is still on schedule for 6 p.m. Thursday.

The Augusta plant is one of 252 processing centers set for closure by the U.S. Postal Service which is expected to fall $14.1 billion in debt next year. The service has agreed to delay the closing of the mail processing centers and 3,700 local post offices until mid-May.

The public hearing at 6 p.m. at the Kroc Center is the opportunity for the public to voice opinion about the potential closure and to ask questions of Postal Service representatives.
