Lawsuit filed against United States Postal Service in Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Local apartment complexes have filed a lawsuit against the United State Postal Service in Bowling Green after a recent change in mail delivery left hundreds of Bowling Green apartment residents without mail distribution.

Originally, the United State Postal Service said in a statement to WNKY that they are prohibited from distributing mail to individual mailboxes for dormitories or residence halls.

The USPS manual states that an apartment complex will qualify as a dormitory or residence hall if it “often consists of single or multi-room units that may share or have access to centrally located kitchens, bathrooms, showers, or social or common areas, whether located on or off campus, and regardless of private ownership, such buildings are nevertheless dormitories.”

The USPS refusal to distribute mail has left the managers in charge of mail distribution.
