Post office asks that boxes be cleared of ice

With the arrival of snow, ice and difficult weather conditions, the Craig post office is asking postal customers to always clear a safe, accessible path to mailboxes.

Post office requests include:

• Make sure the mailbox is visible and free of snow and ice.

• Make sure mailboxes are safely accessible for letter carriers.

• Clear the mailbox area of snow, sleet, slush, ice and debris.

If mailboxes are blocked off and conditions are too difficult, letter carriers must consider safety and accessibility first, and are instructed not to deliver to mailboxes and locations considered too difficult or unsafe to access.

For more information, call the Craig post office at 824-8506.
