WAITE PARK, Minn. (KNSI)  Some changes are coming next month to the operations at the U.S. Postal Service's mail sorting facility in Waite Park. 

Postal Service spokesman Pete Nowacki says beginning September 7th, "we'll be moving our originating operation out of Waite Park to Minneapolis." He says that means, "letters that are deposited in the St. Cloud area and in zip code areas for 562, 563 and 564 will be cancelled down in Minneapolis rather than in St. Cloud."

He says that does not mean the Waite Park facility will close. Nowacki says, "mail that is being sorted for delivery to the St. Cloud area and surrounding areas will still take place in Waite Park for the foreseeable future."

Nowacki says the change will result in around 10 employees being transferred to Minnepolis, but will not result in jobs layoffs for any full-time employees locally. 

Nowacki says the only change the public will notice is some earlier collections at collection boxes.
