ATHENS, Ga. (FOX 5 Atlanta) – The United States Postal Service restored mail delivery to an Athens apartment on Thursday. It had been suspended because of concerns regarding crime.
Once service was stopped, workers at Bethel Midtown Village started picking up the mail to sort it. But, that became too much. Those who wanted their deliveries had to go to the main post office to pick it up. That became a problem for some residents.
Frustration settled in.
“On a scale of 1 to 10, 10,” said Terrinesha Stevens. “Because it’s like once you’ve got business to handle, you gotta handle business.”
People who live here say it started about a week before June 25 letter went up noting a “rash of crime.”
