Nicholasville and Wilmore post offices are safe from the nationwide sweep of cutbacks and closures — at least for now.
According to David Walton with United States Postal Service government relations in Louisville, no post office is safe and many more cuts may come in the future. However, for the time being, the jobs of 40-plus employees at the Nicholasville branch and 12 at the Wilmore center remain intact.
Jessamine County's branches were spared cutbacks that came just a few week ago to shorten hours and window service and will remain at their current operating hours.
For the past couple years, the USPS has reported loses in the billions in revenue and has been scrambling for ways to save money just to stay afloat.
