ALBURTIS BOROUGH COUNCIL Unanchored mailboxes continue to be a concern in the borough

Wednesday, October 29, 2014 by LORETTA FENSTERMACHER in Local News

Approximately 12 citizens of Alburtis with questions and concerns about mailboxes in the borough, attended a special meeting at Alburtis Borough Hall Oct. 15.

The residents wanted answers to their ongoing concerns about the problem of mailboxes supported by rocks or cemented in or planted in dirt in trash cans or buckets and put in front of their homes or apartments because the post office delivers on one side of the street only, their side.

According to Council President Steve Hill, the Alburtis postmaster was invited to the meeting but was not able to attend.
