TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service says it will not change a decision to close the main post office building in downtown Topeka.

The postal service notified Mayor Larry Wolgast this week that it will relocate services at the building to another location, which hasn't been determined.

The move was announced in February but residents, Wolgast and the National Park Service were among many parties asking the postal service to reconsider. The downtown building has served postal customers in Topeka since 1932.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1iKxUyc ) Tom Samra, a postal service executive, said in a letter that the agency considered the concerns but the decision to close the building is best to ensure that postal services are affordable and efficient.
