Gretna, La. – Whether you’re simply dropping a letter in the mail or going inside to buy stamps, it’s hard to miss the conditions of the Gretna Post Office.
“It looks horrible. I mean the grass is super high. It looks really bad,” says Roy Bolds.
The grass is more than a foot tall. Trash and debris litter the parking lot and on the inside, people say it isn’t much better.
“Usually when I go in there in the evening, there’s trash all over the floor,” says Christina Gonzales.
“It’s difficult when a federal facility becomes an eyesore within a community. Garden Park is a very nice subdivision. The City of Gretna take a lot of pride in keeping it up and when you’ve got the main Post Office that just looks like it’s in a third world country, it’s not very pleasing and it’s unacceptable,” says Roberts.
