If you're still experiencing mail issues, we're here to deliver good news and bad news.

What's happening: U.S. Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-Columbus) is working with the U.S. Postal Service to conduct a series of audits regarding our delivery problems, per WSYX.

  • Beatty's Saturday announcement says she'll "work with local officials to ensure the necessary investments and solutions are put in place."

Yes, but: Full audit reports won't be available for weeks, so for now, we should still expect to see staffing-related delivery setbacks we reported on earlier this month.

Be smart: If you're getting impatient, you can visit your post office to pick up letters. (Call 1-800-ASK-USPS to confirm your location.)

  • To track missing mail, you can sign up for informed delivery, an automated daily email showing what letters are supposed to be heading your way.

💭 Alissa's thought bubble: I've only received mail at my west side home three days this month, so I'm eagerly awaiting the results of these audits and hopefully some positive changes.
