COLUMBIA — Columbia residents are advised to clear a path to their mailboxes tomorrow in order to make mail delivery accessible.
Unsafe paths might cause a delay in mail delivery Thursday because of possible snow and ice accumulation tonight, according to a United States Postal Service news release.
“Whether they have the ability to salt, sand or clear the path, we want to make sure (the postal worker’s) path is clear for secure footing," Customer Relations Coordinator Cheryl Hudson said. "Our carriers will make every attempt to deliver mail, this is just a courtesy to our postal workers.”
Hudson said mail may not be delivered if the path is too dangerous, but this is very rare.
Undelivered mail will be delivered the following day, she said.
“Safety is our main concern, along with customer service,” Hudson said.
