U.S. Congressman Michael McCaul and Senator John Cornyn have sent a letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy after they were alerted to issues regarding the United States Postal Service.
According to the letter sent by McCaul and Cornyn, multiple constituents have contacted their respective offices to voice concerns.
The concerns revolve around extended delays in services and processing at the North Houston Regional Processing and Distribution Center, as well as the South Houston Local Processing Center in Missouri City.
McCaul and Cornyn said in the letter that they learned the delay stems from attempts to implement new processing technology as part of the USPS.
If true that the modernization efforts are leading to delays, then they told De Joy that the problems must be addressed immediately, and with transparency.
The other problem being reported to the lawmakers is that the USPS has notified apartment complexes in College Station that their delivery service is being changed since they are identified as student housing.
Rather than mail going to individual residents, the mail is now being delivered in bulk to a designated representative of the school despite not being owned or affiliated with Texas A&M.
These apartment complexes have had individual unit deliveries for decades.
McCaul and Cornyn closed the letter by expressing their appreciation for the day-to-day workers at the Postal Service, and encouraged De Joy to respond to their concerns as soon as he can.
