Columbia residents may soon have to wait a little bit longer for their mail to arrive.

The U.S. Postal Service has put together an Area Mail Processing proposal to move some operations, including 91 Columbia jobs, to St. Louis and Kansas City. This is in large part due to a decrease of 53 billion pieces of mail during the past seven years, a fourth of the overall volume.
