Things have gotten so bad with some mountain mailrooms in Colorado that one town, Silverthorne (backed up by a smattering of other mountain towns), is considering taking legal action against the federal agency of the United States Postal Service.

“I know we are in a current extreme crisis with the post office. Someone in my office showed me a letter they got on Saturday that was mailed to them on Dec. 13,” Silverthorne town manager Ryan Hyland told CBS News Colorado.

Hyland said lawyers are looking into what it would take to move on this sweeping potential class-action lawsuit but are focused on any solution that seems plausible, such as teaming with the post office to offer affordable housing for workers.
