The struggling U.S. Postal Service says it's considering whether to close more than 250 mail processing centers across the country, including three in southeast Ohio.

There are 10 centers in Ohio on the list.

The list released by the agency on Thursday includes facilities in Akron, Athens, Canton, Chillicothe  Cincinnati, Dayton, Ironton, Steubenville, Toledo and Youngstown.

Ohio Postal Workers Union Vice President Julie Truss says the only Ohio mail processing offices that are safe are in Cleveland and Columbus.

Postal officials say all the facilities on the list will be reviewed over the next three months.

Postal Service spokesman Victor Dubina in Cleveland says the agency could start announcing in March which locations will close.

The money-losing Postal Service also is reviewing about 3,700 local post offices nationwide for possible closure.
