When I need to mail packages I always try to take them to Bayfield instead of Durango (where I work) When I mail them from Bayfield they get to their destination 2 days sooner! It goes from here to Denver. If you are mailing to anywhere in New Mexico then mail it from Durango. All of durango mail goes to Albuquerque to be sorted.


I stop by the Bayfield PO every few days to pick up my PO box mail. Why does it seem like the floor is always wet and newly mopped every time I stop by? You'd think they'd mop during less busy hours, not 2:00 pm. Some elderly, disabled, or clumsy person (like me) is going to slip and fall one of these days.


The post office in Durango I have my mail stolen twice because the post man just leaves it on a table in the apt Building in the waiting area. I called the post office and they said the manager of the apts asked them to do that. The manager said she never okayed that. After my fist package was stolen, the post master said from then on they would leave a slip in my mail box. And then they kept putting it on the table. Now a second package has been stolen. I asked to speak to or. Get the phone number for her supervisor and she replied no, and would call the police if I called again


I am one of the residences on Foxfire Road in Bayfield, Colorado. I do not know what is going on with the Postal Employee that delivers mine, and others, mail at the entrance of Foxfire Road and highway 160, but can you please educate them!!! Weekly, either my mail is being placed in the box of other residence boxes or, I am receiving the mail of other residence in my box. Today, a resident came by and delivered the mail she had been getting of mine, in her box. I have not received mail in my box in two days. PLEASE, CORRECT THIS ISSUE!


Why hasn't my mail been delivered until 5pm these past few days?! I usually pick it up on my way home from work and the late deliveries have really screwed up my routine. I'm really hoping it reverts back to normal soon or I will be filing a formal complaint.


The manager of this post office needs to be terminated immediately. Melinda Conners has repeatedly used her position as Post Master to intimidate, lie and manipulate her staff and several citizens of LaPlata County. How and why she has been allowed to do this to so many paying customers is baffling! Rude doesn't even begin to describe the ABUSE she puts her staff and customers through. Somebody in charge from Denver better get down to Bayfield pronto! Figure out what in the world is wrong with this woman and fire her before she gets the US Postal Service sued. I will be placing a formal complaint at 1-800-275-8777


Melinda Conners is the biggest b**** and worst employee I have ever met. I would rather drive 12 hours to get my mail elsewhere than deal with going into the Bayfield post office. She is conniving and psychotic....she makes false allegations and treats customers like dirt. RUDEST women I have ever met.
