WAVERLY — Neither rain nor sleet nor snow nor dark of night … nor big road potholes … will keep Waverly Meadows residents from getting their mail.
Waverly Mayor Angela McPhaul has told The Progress-Index the Postal Service plans to install a community mail-collection post at the entrance to the subdivision. The neighborhood straddles portions of both the town and Sussex County.
Instead of having Waverly Meadows’ 18 residents move their mailboxes to the entrance, Mayor McPhaul confirmed the post office would be footing the bill to place the collection point at the neighborhood’s entrance just off state Route 40 near the town’s western limits.
The Waverly Post Office was planning to send a letter to neighborhood residents that because of the road conditions, vehicles would not be able to deliver inside the subdivision. However, the decision to place the community mail-collection post should remedy that concern for now.
