We're wondering if our mail gets frequently misdelivered (delivered to the wrong address) because it is always being delivered at the end of a long day, by which time the postal delivery staff are tired and wanting to go home. For instance, yesterday the mail was still being delivered after 8 pm. (It’s more typically delivered around 6 or 7 pm.) Sorting the mail for so many units (126) at the same delivery location (Northshore) seems onerous when it is already long past the end of a regular (9 to 5) work day.
Since many people at Northshore tend to stop by their mailboxes when returning from work, or walk to them while it’s still light (and numerous residents are retired and don’t want to walk to their mailboxes in the late evening), we typically get our mail a full day late. Has the North Avenue post office ever considered reversing the delivery order so that Northshore residents would get their mail early in the day rather than late? That would ensure that all of us (in all 126 units) would get our mail in a timely manner. Others in the North Burlington community, with mailboxes right outside their door, are much less likely to notice any delay if their mail arrives an hour or two later than usual. This option could be a ‘win-win,’ allowing Northshore residents to get our mail on the day of its delivery (rather than the next day) and with less option for error, since it wouldn’t be sorted between 126 units at the end of a long day.
Thanks for considering this option.
