Yorktown Supervisor Matt Slater

YORKTOWN, NY — January 9, 2021 —  Supervisor Matt Slater yesterday asked a regional postal official to resolve erratic mail service in Yorktown.

In recent weeks Town Hall has received more than 40 complaints about erratic and delayed mail service. The complaints are coming from most of the eight zip codes in Yorktown, but they particularly concern service out of the post offices that serve Yorktown Heights (10598) and Shrub Oak (10588).
“When I contacted our local post offices about the disrupted mail service, I learned that Covid-19-related illness and staffing shortages were among the reasons for the unsatisfactory service,” Supervisor Slater wrote in his letter to USPS district manager Elizabeth A. Doell. “While recognizing the challenges posed by the pandemic, the Postal Service must consider enhancing its workforce to compensate for sick employees and other staffing shortages.”
Yorktown has created a web page to collect complaints about the erratic mail service. Residents who have experienced erratic mail service should submit a complaint to the web page.
A copy of Supervisor Slater’s letter is attached.

  1. I mailed Christmas cards on Dec 18, 2020 from the Jefferson Valley, ny post office. One in particular had a check in it. These cards never arrived to this day especially the one with the check. Where are these cards? There is no excuse for not delivering these cards.
