Post Office Cuts Service

About 20 of Amarillo's almost 200 collection mail boxes will be removed to cut-costs.

The news came out this afternoon, just one day after the postal service offered a $15,000 early retirement buyout to mailroom employees.

That's on top of a long list of cutbacks already this year such as:

-- a nationwide hiring freeze

--- stopping construction of new post offices

--- closing six district offices

--- adjusting hours and routes to reflect demand

--- and those are just the highlights
