Buena Vista residents to receive free PO boxes after long fight
BUENA VISTA, Colo. (KDVR) — Back in July, FOX31 told you about residents in Bunea Vista who were fed up with their post office because of the high prices of mandatory PO Boxes and the lack of delivery. Now, they’re set to get some relief.
A decision from USPS is years in the making. Those residents who were having to pay for mail services through the PO boxes will now get free boxes starting at the beginning of next year.
Mary Ann Uzelac has been at the center of this fight contacting the post office, organizing community meetings, sending letters to her state reps and even planning protests.
“They were beeping as people passed by and had their fists in the air in solidarity and people were yelling thank you out their car windows. I was really gratified by that, and it really put a spark in us to keep on keeping on,” said Uzelac.
