JACKSON (CBS13) — Some Amador County neighbors say they have not gotten mail in months.
People who live along Artesia Court say mail service is spotty at best. When one woman’s Christmas cards and packages didn’t arrive, she wanted to know who the grinch was.
“I am so frustrated. I don’t know what to do,” said Cindy Corchero.
“I pay our bills, taxes, we are good citizens, we vote, we do all that stuff. So just give me my mail,” she said.
Last week she called the post office in town. She says a woman there told her they were short-handed.
“She said ‘You’re at the end of the line of the delivery and they’re only allowed to work 12 hours a day, the carriers, once they hit that 12-hour mark, that’s it. So if your mail is not delivered. Oh well,’” said Corchero.
Corchero was speechless because she only lives a mile from the post office. Neighbor Connie Dix has been experiencing the same issue. She blames the turnover. They have had eight mailmen on their street in three years.
“And they never seem happy. They just want to get it over with. You know how it was years ago when you knew your mailman and gave them Christmas cookies? It’s not like that anymore,” said Dix.
CBS13 asked the US Postal Service why mail was not getting delivered. A representative said it’s under investigation.
