So far, no refused postal deliveries on Westside
Although mail delivery has been a challenge for carriers during the recent snowy weather, “people have been getting 100 percent deliveries on the Westside,”
according to Ron Perry, spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service in Colorado Springs.
The agency provides forms explaining what they expect from customers. The request is for 30 feet clearance on either side of a curbside mailbox, including trash cans and cars, according to public-information forms provided by Perry.
The Westside Pioneer has heard reports about people - though not on the Westside - being threatened with non-delivery if that 30-foot distance is not complied with. A call to Al DeSarro, spokesperson for the western area of the Postal Service, returned a less specific demand. “The intent is have a clear, safe access to the mailbox for the letter carrier and we usually do not specify any exact measurements because that can vary from how and where the mailbox is located,” he said.
Anyone with questions or concerns on the Westside can call Perry at 360-9667.
