In the June 21st letter, the pols said constituents have expressed “dissatisfaction” with the performance of the postal service, including untimely deliveries, mail sent to incorrect addresses and mail sometimes not being received at all.
“Inadequate mail delivery in North Brooklyn leaves its residents without the ability to send and receive mail in a timely manner,” Assemblyman Joseph Lentol said in a statement.
“Not only are these problems, including missing and late mail delivery, an inconvenience to residents, but they could pose real problems for people awaiting critical and time-sensitive personal and professional mail,” added Senator Charles Schumer.
Other officials who signed the letter were Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez and Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney.
They want the audit to investigate what changes should be implemented to ensure “mail is delivered with greater care and accuracy” moving forward.
“Residents should not have to worry about whether their personal or time sensitive information being carried through the mail will get lost,” Gillibrand added in a statement. “An audit would identify the reason for these incorrect deliveries and help lead to a solution to this issue.”
