The US Postal Service has decided to move Johnson City's mail processing operations to Knoxville, despite what had been described as a five-month moratorium on such changes announced in December.
"Once the transfers are completed, the mail processing operations at the closing sites will cease," the USPS said in a news release. "There will be no change to any of the retail units, business mail entry units or vehicle maintenance facilities at these locations at this time."
Specific dates have not been set for the transition. Until a specific date has been announced, residential and business mailers will continue to be served through the current facilities.
