Mount Greenwood residents outraged over slow service, mail piling up outside post office
CHICAGO – There is outrage at a South Side post office after stacks of mail were found outside and complaints were voiced from residents, even the alderman, regarding slow service.
“Everyone knows it’s a problem, what the hell are they doing about it?” said 19th Ward Alderman Matt O’Shea.
At 119th and Homan, boxes and boxes of residents’ mail is piling up on a loading dock.
“Some weeks we get it and then they’re weeks at a time we don’t get anything,” said Mount Greenwood resident Douglas Ball.
Alderman O’Shea says he has tried for months to investigate the issues, but says his calls to management are never returned.
