Video: Amherst NY postmaster orders customers to move their mailboxes… or else!

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — People in an Amherst neighborhood are mad and confused after receiving letters from the Postal Service, stating they must move their mailboxes or they will no longer receive any mail.

“As a postal carrier, you’re expected to walk and exercise,” says Lisa, a woman living along Hilton Boulevard in Amherst. She is among the group of neighbors receiving letters from the Post Office. “They say through rain, sleet and snow they will deliver your mail… unless you have stairs.”

The houses on Hilton each have a few steps to the porches where the mailboxes are situated.
