Akron City Council is asking the U.S. House of Representatives to vote no on a bill that would eliminate Saturday mail delivery and effect how millions get their mail each day.
At-large Councilman Jeff Fusco doesn't think the approach is necessary for fighting the post office's financial situation.
"We certainly understand that adjustments ought to be made," Fusco said.
"However, House Resolution 2309 is an "all or nothing" approach to alleviating this problem."
Council unanimously passed a resolution opposing the bill during their meeting Monday night.

Fusco said if House Resolution 2309 passes, a negative impact would be felt all over the country and in Akron, especially amongst the elderly and the disabled in the community.
"Obviously we have a lot of people who have a hard time getting around, and this would adversely affect them tremendously," Fusco said.
"We're simply asking Congress take their time and study ways to save the post office money."
