U.S. Postal Service defaults on $5 billion; hours at dozens of local centers may be cut

USPS has said it will mail surveys to each resident in each of the affected postal districts, and will also arrange meetings where residents can express their views about the changes. Some of the meetings have been scheduled for the week of October 15 (check about.usps.com/news/electronic-press-kits/our-future-network/post-plan.htm for specific meeting times). Many post office meetings have not yet been scheduled.

The plan is scheduled to be put in place in phases, with completion coming by 2014.
