The U.S. Postal Service issued a news release early this week that reported nearly 100 percent of north Georgia residents were back on regular mail schedules following last week’s winter storm.
Atlanta District Manager Kate F. Wiley said there are still 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 few, and that situation is improving each day.
Wiley said in order to help get delivery operations back on track, USPS personnel made deliveries throughout the metro Atlanta area on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Wiley wanted to remind residents to clear the paths around their mailboxes of ice, snow or other obstacles that may interfere with their line of travel.
