Relatively late mail delivery blamed on Christmas rush

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jan 09, 2014

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> During the last year we have been receiving our mail delivery around 5 p.m. As it got closer to the Christmas season, we have been getting our mail around 6 p.m. when it is dark and I can understand that situation. However, I wanted to find out what the normal time is we can expect our mail so I called the 1-800 number in the phone book and they put me on hold for over 20 minutes. I tried twice and finally got the direct number for the Pearl City Post Office. I was informed that in about a month or so the routes will be looked at and realigned.</p>
<p>I asked for the reason why the opposite side of my street gets mail delivery about 1:30 p.m. and we get it at 6 p.m. The answer was that is the route. I am concerned about the rise again in the postage, but was also told that was for fuel and not for staffing. I found out that there is a lot of overtime. If there is a huge amount of overtime, shouldn't more employees be hired to relieve the employees?</p>
