2 Mailboxes to be Removed from Downtown Mall Post Office
Mail collection boxes on Charlottesville's downtown mall
In a couple of weeks you will notice fewer mail collection boxes on Charlottesville's downtown mall. Two of the four boxes in front of the main post office will be removed on September 17.
A spokeswoman with the U.S. Postal Service says this is in response to density tests. Workers count the amount of mail put in the box for two weeks - and if the number of pieces do not meet the minimum requirement, they are removed.
We're told this cuts down on the number of stops a mail carrier has to make and helps keep postage rates low.
