Many residents complaining-poor mail service...WHAT ARE YOUR IDEAS FOR THE POSTAL SERVICE
Release Date: January 18, 2018

GREENBURGH EXPERIENCING NUMEROUS POSTAL SERVICE PROBLEMS THIS PAST WEEK-- NO MAIL FOR SOME, RESIDENTS COMPLAINING OF NOT RECEIVING BILLS, CHECKS, MEDICINE OR GETTING MAIL THAT SHOULD BE SENT TO OTHERS....

   WHAT DO YOU THINK THE POSTAL SERVICE SHOULD DO SO THAT SERVICE IS RELIABLE AGAIN?  YOUR SUGGESTIONS WILL BE FORWARDED TO WASHINGTON

 

During the past few days I have received many e mails and phone calls from angry residents upset with the Postal service.  Residents of  Greenburgh have been complaining about the lack of reliable postal services. Some residents get no mail on certain days, others get mail that are addressed to others. People who have mailed me have gotten the letter back--addressee unknown even though I haven't moved.  Others are angry because they are not receiving checks, bills or prescription drugs.  In fairness to the post office, not everyone in town is experiencing problems. A few weeks ago I did receive some compliments about postal service employees from different people.  But - this week I received many complaints from people all over town.

 

 

 

I've been writing about problems residents have had with the Postal Service for over five years. This past week I received the most unsolicited complaints I have ever received   from concerned postal service patrons who have lost confidence with the Postal Service.

 

 

 

Rather than complain - I thought it would be useful to ask you for your recommendations. What do you think the Postal Service should do to correct a national problem?  I am forwarding two articles with suggestions.  But, I am sure that Greenburgh residents have some other ideas worthy of follow up attention.

Please e mail me your thoughts at pfeiner@greenburghny.com and I will forward them to Congressional representatives and officials at the United States Postal Service. Speak to your postal service carrier. Get his/her thoughts. If you know anyone in the Postal Service employees union - chat with them.  If you read an interesting article -with suggestions -that would be great. Hopefully, members of Congress will consider scheduling hearings in Washington--not only to hear complaints but to develop suggestions that could make the Postal Service reliable as it once was.

 

 

 

We all have the same goal: reliable and dependable mail service. If we brainstorm and come up with good ideas, we might be able to help turn around a postal service that is experiencing major problems. Our goal: not to point fingers but to get results.  This is a national problem.
