The Postal Regulatory Commission says it has received over 12,000 comments from the public on the postal service’s proposal to end Saturday mail delivery. The PRC issued this thank you to to the public:
Dear Members of the Public, thank you for writing us.
The Commission has received more than 12,000 letters, cards, emails, and faxes so far in response to our request for public comments on a Postal Service proposal to end Saturday mail delivery service across the United States (Docket N2010-1). Your correspondence has provided the Commission with a valuable range of suggestions, ideas, emotions and experiences that augment the comments and testimony we received at seven field hearings conducted throughout the country this spring, and through the formal proceedings now underway at Commission Headquarters in Washington, DC. We appreciate having thoughtful input from civic-minded citizens to help guide our deliberations. We continue to welcome further input and expect to issue our Advisory Opinion in the fall.
The Commission also is here to help you.
We are pleased to assist customers who experience problems with their postal service. The Commission now has expanded authority under the postal law enacted in 2006 to ensure that service and rate issues sent to us by postal customers are resolved by the Postal Service in a timely and appropriate manner. As of the end of June, we have helped customers by resolving 391 rate and service inquiries. In addition, the Commission has created a variety of online resources to assist postal customers in accessing information and assistance. Simply scroll down this web page to find links under the heading “Information for Postal Customers.”
Please do not hesitate to contact us in the future. My fellow Commissioners and I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks again for writing.
