KATY, Texas – Some residents at a Katy adult living apartment complex have been without mail for days because of a broken box.
“Now, it’s a felony to go into someone’s mail box, but it’s OK to have this open?” asked Evelyn Serrago who has lived at the apartment complex for a year.
The United States Postal Service will not deliver mail to the breeched boxes at the Villas of Park Grove. Evelyn said she and about 35 other residents affected at the one panel have not received mail for almost a week.
“They may be without their Social Security check, they may be without their bill that they have to pay and they worry a lot, older people fret about those things,” said Serrago.
Management at the Villas of Park Grove said they sent a letter to residents on Wednesday letting them know that they were not sure how long it would take for USPS to fix the lock. The letter notified tenants that they would have to drive to the post office on Park Row in Katy. Read more from Click 2 Houston
