The Fairlawn Branch Post Office on Monday referred questions to U.S. Postal Service spokesman David Van Allen in Cleveland. In an email, he attributed the problems to changes made to carrier routes last fall at the local branch and didn’t respond when asked if management had changed there.
Fairlawn Mayor Bill Roth also told the Akron Beacon Journal he’s experienced “erratic mail delivery” at his home and is aware of other similar issues in the community.
Van Allen said the route on which Semonin lives now has a more seasoned carrier so residents shouldn’t be missing mail or receiving the wrong mail. And he said the Postal Service “is committed to ensuring quality service and mail delivery to all customers.”
Will the alleged management shake-up fix the problems? Only time will tell.
