Mail Delivery

Mail Service Limitation Should Be Modified For Public Benefit

The US Postal Service has announced that it will scale back mail delivery to five days a week, beginning August 1, but continuing package deliveries on Saturdays, and keeping post offices open and stamp purchases still available as well.

This decision will affect people who have tended to send bill payments close to the deadline, and now know that they will not be delivered on a Saturday.

And the problem of many Mondays being holidays also could mean that there will be weeks where mail delivery would be only four days, with three days in a row of no mail delivery at all.

So a suggestion is that the Postal Service arrange that on weeks where there is a Monday holiday following a Saturday, that mail delivery still be done on those Saturdays, so as to guarantee five days a week delivery.
