Postal Service calls on Western workers to help Colorado mountain towns
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. — Officials with the U.S. Postal Service met with leaders in communities from Silverthorne to Steamboat Springs Tuesday to discuss how they’re fixing the backlog of mail to Colorado mountain communities.
The Problem Solvers have reported on the mail mess in Buena Vista, where rural residents waited weeks to get necessities, including medication, delivered to their homes. The Postal Service sent in workers from Colorado Springs, Pueblo and a worker from out of state to help with the backlog.
