Big city growth strains rural Texas post office, frustrates residents

Residents who live in and around the town of Fulshear said they are frustrated with the U.S. Postal Service, as they believe it has not kept up with the population boom of the area.

Some of those concerns surfaced in pictures that show postal employees having to sort piles of mail outside of the post office, on the ground.

“If you live in Fulshear, it was in the country. There’s no more country now,” said Viola Randle, who has lived in the area her entire life.

    It happens. I saw mail sorted on a truck dock in good weather. There was more room and it was the only place with enough room to use one hamper for each route, and reducing sorting time. If it was raining, the carriers got their mail later.
