Letter To The Editor: US Postal Decision May Shut Down LA
Posted by on Mar 27, 2005 - 7:56:00 PM

By April 15, all mail with zip codes beginning with 900, 901, 902, 903, and 904 will be processed and distributed from one facility.  I am not talking about retail post offices, but the processing and distribution facility from which all the mail for over 171 zip codes must pass through before our local mail carriers can sort and deliver the mail.  These zip codes cover all communities from Malibu to Palos Verdes to Downey to Eagle Rock.

What would happen to the city of Los Angeles if this downtown LA Processing and Distribution Center was to be shut down as a result of fire, earthquake, or even worse, an anthrax or terrorist attack?

In the March 16 edition of the LA Times page A27, they report that 3 mail facilities in Washington DC were shut down for 2 days because of an anthrax scare.  And the Hamilton, New Jersey Post Office that handled anthrax-laced letters in 2001 was shut down for more than 3 1/2 years.

And the US Postal Service is planning to consolidate the Long Beach processing center into the City of Industry processing center, which reduces further any possible back up facility.

We can stop the closing of the Marina Processing and Distribution Center. Write or phone the following:
