Postal Service wants to relocate in East Greenwich

The U.S. Postal Service wants to move its retail counter in East Greenwich to a new, smaller space and move delivery operations to North Kingstown.

It's going to present a proposal during an East Greenwich Town Council on Monday evening.

The move is planned as part of the postal service's nationwide effort to cut costs amid a budget crisis.

It says it hasn't decided where to move yet, but that its space in East Greenwich amounts to 19,000 square feet. The service says the move will not affect mail delivery.
