Tyler's downtown post office under review

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Several East Texans have mentioned that they heard the downtown Tyler post office was going to be closed.

We immediately called the postal service and Congressman Louie Gohmert's office to find out what was going on.

We learned there is no current plan to shut down the post office.

But, the service is reviewing all of its lease locations and a spokesman said. With the Postal Service losing as much money as it is, every aspect of the organization is under review.

They released the following statement:
"As the Postal Service continues to manage a severe decline in mail volume, and a $20,000,000 loss of revenue each day, every facet of the organization is under review. At this time, no decision has been made about the status of the Tyler Downtown Station."
