Don’t move that mailbox

It has been brought to my attention that members of our community are being asked to move their mailbox from where it currently sits.

As a retiree of the U.S. Postal Service, this concerns me and I feel the need to make the public aware of their rights.

Regulations make it very clear that property owners are in control of where they receive their mail. If you are being asked to change the location, you must agree to this conversion in writing. Should you not agree, it is your right to keep the mailbox as is.

If a residence is sold, the mailbox should not be moved prior to the new resident moving in.

The existing location must be retained absent an agreement in writing.
