ELIZABETH, Colo. — Town leaders in Elizabeth say the U.S. Postal Service has been silent since they bought cluster mailboxes for their residents, in lieu of the lack of delivery services.
Buena Vista residents experiencing these same issues expressed frustration a few weeks ago to the Problem Solvers, being forced to pay for post office boxes. Now, Elizabeth city leaders say things are the same for them.
They say about half of their residents can’t get mail delivered. Mayor Megan Vasquez said that about nine months ago they spent more than $200,000 on cluster mailboxes for residents on the south and north sides of town. This decision was made after budgeting and speaking with the Postal Service.
But after the boxes were up, they didn’t get a response from the Postal Service on how to get residents’ mail into these boxes.
