March 19-- You can expect some mail delays if the U.S. Postal Service proceeds with consolidation of some processing centers.
It has announced plans to move the processing center in Swainsboro to Macon and relocate two centers in Savannah to Charleston, Jacksonville and Macon.
Vidalia Postmaster Bill Warnock says consolidation won't impact Express Mail, however, he believes delivery of First Class Mail could take two days if and when the changes take effect. The Postmaster says delivery of mail in this zip code zone currently should only take one day if the letter is at the post office before five p.m.
Final decisions on consolidation proposal are expected in mid-May.
