Iowa mail processing center closes despite fight

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — The Sioux City mail processing center has closed despite attempts to save it.

KITV-TV reports that the final pieces of mail went through the center on Saturday morning. Operations are being transferred to a processing center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Postal officials have said local mail delivery will not be affected by the move. However, Sioux City will lose about 70 jobs.
