The case of the missing mail
From CBS 2:
On Thursday afternoon, the Postal Service apologized for the delivery issues, admitting, “There have been new hires to replace some recent retirements and to assist with prime vacation period.”
The Postal Service said since January it has been meeting quarterly with postal managers and community leaders to try to strengthen service in the Rockaways.
Dozens of residents shared their ongoing mail delivery problems on Facebook and by email, saying the Postal Service isn’t doing enough.
“They need to have the head of the post office come down and talk to us. They’re avoiding us,” Simon said.
The mistakes can be costly, from missing medication deliveries to late fees from missing bills. So residents say an apology is not enough.
The Postal Service suggests people track their mail digitally to help keep track of their letters and packages.
