GREEN TREE, Pa. – A battle between people in a Carnegie neighborhood and the U.S. Postal Service is boiling over because they’re suddenly not getting their mail.
Channel 11’s Courtney Brennan got a tip from residents in Prestley Heights, between Collier Township and Carnegie, who said their mail is being held hostage at the Green Tree post office.
The Postal Service told Channel 11 that the original builder said there would be centralized mailboxes for this development, but that builder has since left the project. The Postal Service couldn’t say what the catalyst was for stopping mail delivery to these homes, but said they are now working with the new builder to remedy the situation.
Vermeire said a remedy is desperately needed: “A couple people are waiting for prescriptions, somebody’s waiting for an ID card to fill a prescription; like, we need our mail!”
The Postal Service told Channel 11 the developer is going to put in a centralized mailbox, and mail delivery should start again within a few days.
