NEWBURGH, N.Y. -- The United States Postal Service has spared the Mid-Hudson Processing and Distribution Center from consolidating.
In a move announced Thursday, the USPS says it will not close the center and move its operations to Albany. However, the postal service says they will revisit the matter for 2014.
A total of 385 people are employed at the center.
Congressman Maurice Hinchey released a statement Thursday, applauding the move and saying, "Not only does keeping this facility open continue to provide good-paying jobs that will help the area's economy, it also ensures that the Hudson Valley has an effective mail delivery system, which is critical to our region's businesses."
