Winter storms and the cold, snow and ice are here, making it more challenging for our Post Office and letter carriers to deliver your mail.
We're up to it, but we could use your assistance. Here's what you can do to help your postal letter carrier stay safe and to help provide timely mail delivery.
• If you receive delivery to a rural-type post at the street or cluster mailbox, please clear the snow and ice around the mailbox to allow your carrier to safely access the box, deposit the mail and drive away.
• If your mail is delivered to a street side mailbox, residence or business, please keep your mailbox and the path to your mailbox clear of snow and ice.
• If your mail is delivered to a mailbox on your house or door slot, please keep your mailbox and the path to your mailbox clear of snow and ice.
Newspaper and other delivery personnel, construction and utility workers, friends and family also will benefit from a safe and convenient path to your door or driveway.
The letter carriers and employees of the Craig Post Office are committed to timely, efficient and safe delivery of your mail. We greatly appreciate your support.
