González Colón: Structural woes at main PO shouldn’t slow holiday mail
By John McPhaul
Resident Commissioner Jenniffer González Colón said Monday that the United States Postal Service has taken steps to minimize problems with the receipt of packages in Puerto Rico as a result of the collapse of part of the central post office building in San Juan.
“Mail is already being processed here; that is, it is no longer being sent to Tennessee as it was a few months ago,” González Colón said.
“With the visits we made, another additional building was rented to handle the volume of traffic,” she added. “We are in the peak season, so if you are ordering packages, order them in advance to avoid delay.”
González Colón said an educational campaign to guide citizens on how to write their postal address correctly will begin in the next few days, something she said will help in the efficient delivery of mail.
The resident commissioner made her statements at the end of a ceremony in which the name of the 65th Infantry Regiment was given to the post office building located on the avenue of the same name.
