TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A U.S. Postal Service official says the agency has not adequately informed the public about the impact of closing mail facilities in Tucson and other cities nationwide.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (http://bitly.com/1t2t3Rz) that U.S. deputy assistant inspector general Robert J. Batta said in an Oct. 6 memorandum that the Postal Service should complete a study of the planned shutdown of mail-processing facilities.

The inspector general’s office says the agency should make sure there is no “negative impact on delivery service quality” before implementing the consolidations.

David Williams, a Postal Service vice-president, says impact studies will be completed starting in January.

The Tucson mailing center is scheduled to close in April 2015 as part of an effort to reduce costs.

All mail operations will move to Phoenix.
