“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”
That has been the unofficial motto of the United States Postal Service for decades, but according to some local residents, it hasn’t been their recent experience with the postal service.
Several Nevada County residents, particularly along Pasquale Road and in the Cascade Shores area, have been complaining online and in person at the Nevada City Post Office about mail delivery problems. Their issue: Carriers delivering parcels to the wrong addresses, arriving late at night, or not coming at all.
Nevada City resident Louise Krusi said for the last 18 months she’s had to become a watchdog, waiting vigilantly by her door just to ensure her mail is delivered, and even that hasn’t been enough at times.
“They can’t seem to read the address and that’s very disconcerting,” Krusi said.
