WHEELING – If you like the convenience of stepping right out your front door to get your mail, it could come to an end in the future. The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform proposed the plan, which means door-to-door mail carriers could be a thing of the past. The bill is waiting approval from Congress.
On Wednesday, the Committee debated ways the United States Postal Service could save money. The proposed plan would call for either communal boxes or curbside boxes, similar to what can be found in apartment complexes. Members say it would make mail delivery quicker for carriers.
Ohio Valley residents expressed their concerns about the idea on Friday.
