The United States Postal Service said a new leader in the Shawnee Mission district oversees Meyer’s neighborhood.

The agency also increased starting salaries to attract and retain employees. A letter carrier in the city now earns $22.13 per hour, and rural carriers start out earning $20.38.

“If you want a job, go somewhere else. If you want a great career, come see us,” said Mark Inglett, a strategic communications specialist for USPS.

Inglett’s worked for the post office for 39 years.

“We’re making the necessary changes we need to continue those improvements, and we’re proud to serve America and deliver for them every day,” Inglett said.
