Mail carrier shortage affecting the elderly population in Madison
MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) — People in Madison say they have not received their mail consistently for quite some time. One resident says she’s surprised when she does get delivery to her mailbox.
The Chapel Hill subdivision community says that the mail shortage has affected the elderly population the most and the problem is getting worse.
Maura Wroblewski is a Madison city council member who has received several complaints from her constituents about not getting the vital mail needed for their survival.
“I’m just very concerned that there probably are not enough mail workers able to drive around and deliver the mail,” said Wroblewski.
