Assembly Member Joseph Lentol is calling on the United States Postal Service Inspector General to complete an audit of mail delivery in North Brooklyn after hearing consistent complaints from local residents.
Lentol, whose calls are seconded by Senator Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Representative Carolyn Maloney and Representative Nydia Velazquez, says residents in North Brooklyn have for years had to deal with late deliveries, deliveries made to the wrong address, and not receiving their mail at all.
The electeds are asking the Inspector General to focus their audit on three zip codes in the Greenpoint and Williamsburg areas: 11222, 11211 and 11249.
“Residents of North Brooklyn rely on the United States Postal Service to deliver mail in a timely and efficient manner,” Lentol said. “Inadequate mail delivery in North Brooklyn leaves its residents without the ability to send and receive mail in a timely manner. I join my colleagues in government in calling on the United States Postal Service Inspector General to conduct a thorough review of mail services in North Brooklyn to ensure its residents are properly receiving mail.”
Constituents responded to Lentol’s announcement of the audit request on his Facebook page with gratitude and relief.
