Post Offices will be open Monday, Jan. 10. Postal customers expect and deserve the mail delivered courteously and promptly. Customers are asked to keep the premises safe as possible and ensure letter carriers can make a nonhazardous delivery.
Although the Postal Service is extremely reluctant, there could be curtailment of mail delivery if the below requirements are not met:
• Ensure all overhangs, sidewalks and steps are free and clear of snow and ice to help
prevent slips and falls to carriers.
• Clear snow and ice away from mailboxes for ease of access and safe delivery
conditions. This includes the walkway in front of residences as well as those
leading up to mail receptacles.
The Postal Service would like to thank customers for cooperating and helping to ensure the safety of letter carriers.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
