Since December’s USPS Audit, Chronic Misdeliveries Continue

WILLIAMSBURG/GREENPOINT — A few months since the audit of three Greenpoint and Williamsburg postal offices by the United States Postal Service Inspector General revealed numerous chronic issues with mail delivery, few of the issues seem to have been resolved.

The Audit

The audit took place in 2019 and found tubs of undelivered mail sitting at the post offices, mail being delivered years late or not at all, and mail failing to be scanned or properly sorted upon reaching the post offices. The postal offices involved in the audit were in zip codes 11211, 11222, and 11249.

Requested by Assemblyman Joseph Lentol, Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, and Representatives Nydia Velazquez and Carolyn Maloney, the audit concluded with several recommendations from the inspector general, including coming up with a plan to ensure that all mail is delivered on time, and all returnable mail is handled correctly; following proper USPS procedures to make sure that all mail and packages are kept secure while at the postal offices; and ensuring that mail and packages are scanned properly and as soon as they arrive at the postal office.
