PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Gov. Dennis Daugaard said state government has expressed its concerns to the U.S. Postal Service about the proposed transfer of mail processing from Pierre to Huron.
The Postal Service says the move would save $480,000 a year. The governor tells KCCR radio there could be an impact on state government, which handles eight million pieces of mail each year.
Daugaard says he understands that like state government, the federal government is trying to be more efficient.
The Postal Service holds a meeting Tuesday evening in Pierre to take public comment on the consolidation.
