The problem affects hundreds to potentially more than a thousand people in our zip code. Service has been down since late April, and all mail for the zip code is supposedly being held at a postal annex facility miles away from the neighborhood in the meantime, according to postal workers I spoke with and our homeowners association. So, mail — outgoing from the boxes and incoming — is being held up in the byzantine postal bureaucracy. That means medications, checks, passport deliveries and other important packages and documents are not being delivered to affected residents in the zip code.
