09/22/2022 - It has been brought to the city’s attention that the post office has stopped delivering mail to some residents on Helen/Roselawn due to the current construction. It was communicated out earlier that temporary mail boxes would be delivered on site. However, due to supply chain issues, those were not able to be utilized. The post office has informed the city that they can only deliver mail when a “hard surface” is available to walk on. All sidewalks are scheduled to be completed by Wednesday of next week, allowing the post office to then continue their normal operations. In the meantime, we advise all residents to stop by your local post office to see if you have any mail waiting there for you. If you are unable to travel to the post office, please contact City Hall and we can try to accommodate you. The city apologizes for this inconvenience from the post office.
