MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The mail processing center in Minot has received a reprieve.

Sen. John Hoeven says the U.S. Postal Service has postponed a scheduled second round of mail processing center closures and consolidations. He says that gives officials more time to make their case for keeping the Minot center open.

The center’s duties were to shift to a center in Bismarck on Feb. 1, as the Postal Service works to cut spending across the nation.

Officials in North Dakota have been lobbying the Postal Service to improve service in the western part of the state, which is bustling with oil activity.
