CLARK, Mo. -Clark city officials recently decided to have all mail deliveries go to P.O. Boxes at the city post office. But the issue is still on the table.
An employee at Clark City Hall said the Board of Aldermen is looking into removing all mailboxes within city limits because many are hanging over culverts, making it hard for maintenance trucks to maneuver around.
City officials said switching to P.O. Boxes would make it easier on maintenance crews and save money on city maintenance. But some residents don’t like the idea.
Postal workers have already started preparing for the switch getting extra P.O. Boxes ready and giving residents keys to boxes as they come in, Postmaster Connie Sample said. The workload for the post office and cost to operate would be the same if door-to-door deliveries are eliminated, Sample said.
But doing so would create a hassle for many residents, Neeson said.
