A United States Postal Service spokesperson confirmed this week that managerial changes have taken place after multiple reports of mail delivery problems in Jamaica Plain, according to the Jamaica Plain Gazette

The changes were made after several Jamaica Plain neighborhoods endured issues with undelivered mail. St. Rose, Boylston and Jamaica streets, as well as Robinwood and Spring Park avenues were reportedly affected, according to the Gazette. 

Customers who continue to experience issues with USPS should call 617-654-5740 or email consumer&industrycontactgreaterbostondistrict@usps.gov, according to the report.

I hesitate to complain about the USPS because I think that overall they do an excellent job. However, our mail delivery has become a great source of irritation due to the "new" letter carrier on our route. Since this new mailman (he's been on our route for 1 to 2 years) we get mail for other addresses on a regular basis. If its a house on our block I jeu bring to the correct house myself but often its for street quite far away. In addition I have had mail that hasn't gotten to me at all. Credit card bills sometime never arrive. Fortunately I can check my statements online avoiding a late feee but I really don't like the idea of my personal info going to strangers. Further, our letter mail get put into our mailboxes but anything larger than a letter (magazines, catalogues, etc) are just thrown on the step. On a good day that still means I have to sort our the mail for the building (3 units) and on a bad day (weather wise) the mail is often soaked to the point of being unreadable. I know this is all due to one particular carrier because when he is off or on another route all of the other carriers presort it and put it in our mailboxes. Suffice to say this is a bad business practice. The latter carrier on our route needs to be retrained at the least.
