Mission Post Office brought in more moolah than Niles

The U.S. Postal service has spared the Mission San Jose Post Office, but is still considering closing the one in Niles. Yesterday they gave me comparisons that show the Mission branch bringing in a lot more money. Here’s a quick breakdown for 2009:

Niles:
Revenue: $369,592
Expenses: $215,746
Net income $153,846

Mission San Jose
Income: $734,946
Expenses: $267,198
Net income: $467,748
