Updated: “When Benjamin Franklin created the United States postal system in 1775, he had a simple idea, put a stamp on a letter, put it in a mailbox and the letter would be delivered to the recipient,” Sen. Chuck Schumer said in Larchmont Friday. “Somehow the Larchmont Post Office had a different idea.”
He said what many of us already know: for over a year, residents of Larchmont, and now New Rochelle, “continue to have shoddy service problems getting their medications and other critical items.”
He demanded the release of an unreleased Postal Service audit report of Larchmont’s postal operations in a public meeting. He also called for the agency to announce a plan to “immediately improve the sub-par service.”
from Sept. 8, 2017:
It’s been going on for months. Bills unpaid. Letters from friends lost. Packages. Prescriptions. And the worst part is, some Larchmont residents will never know what never came.
Friday afternoon (Sept. 8), U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer will be at the Larchmont Post Office to address the village’s year-long mail crisis.
The Larchmont mail delivery “mystery” was taken to the US Postal Service, in March, and the agency promised to investigate. As a result of that review, said a spokesman, more carriers were assigned to Larchmont along with additional customer service training and coaching from the post offices’ Westchester District leadership team.
But still no mail for dozens of residents.
