SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The local post office has, in effect, declared a six-block area of Springfield a Danger Zone for letter carriers. The concern is that dogs roam the residential streets.
As a result, about 100 residents on East McGee, East Lindberg and East Whiteside have had to install new curbside mailboxes. The post office warned them: No curbside mailbox, no home delivery.
Some see it as an overly broad response to a problem they’re not sure exists.
