For the last few weeks, Maspeth and Middle Village residents have been complaining about mailing issues.
Some locals say they’re only getting mail a few times each week when they usually receive mail everyday.
The issue was brought up in this month’s Community Board 5 meeting. Congresswoman Grace Meng has said she is in touch with the U.S. Postal Service to address the problem.
A staffer from Meng’s office, responding to an inquiry from CB5, said the post office is delivering mail based on their staff and resources.
USPS is working through issues like staffing during the COVID-19 pandemic, funding from proposed cuts and more.
Reports have surfaced that some employees tested positive for the virus, and without proper cleaning of facilities, employees were afraid to come in.
