Mail Service Improves for North Georgia
Mail Service Improves for North Georgia

ATLANTA -- The U.S. Postal Service reports that nearly 100% of North Georgia residents received their mail over the past several days.

This is in spite of some of the most challenging weather conditions to impact the region in over a decade.

"Thanks to the many hardworking and dedicated employees, and with some cooperation from the weather, we were able to make more than 99% of all deliveries in ZIP Codes 300, 301, 302, 303, 305 and 306 over the past several days," said Atlanta district manager Kate F. Wiley. "There are some isolated areas where ice has not melted sufficiently to make it safe for delivery employees, so we have not been able to reach everyone. However, those locations are very few, and that situation is improving each day."

Wiley says to help get delivery options back on track, Postal personnel are making deliveries throughout Metro Atlanta on Monday, Jan. 17, which they would normally not do in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.

North Georgia residents are reminded to clear the paths around their mailboxes of ice, snow and other obstacles that may interfere with a letter carrier's line of travel, and to also clear sidewalks and walkways leading to mailboxes where postal workers must leave their vehicles to make deliveries.

Post offices remain closed on Monday; they will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, Jan. 18.
