WOOD-RIDGE, NJ - A borough resident expressed his frustration with the daily mail delivery service in town during the July 15 Wood-Ridge Mayor and Council meeting.
The resident, who lives on Innes Road, addressed the Council about the ongoing poor mail delivery service. He said they get the "wrong mail or no mail." He said "complaints haven't gone anywhere" noting it is "a quality of life issue."
"It's just getting worse," he observed.
Posts on the Wood-Ridge Parents Facebook page found numerous complains about mail service going back to at least 2016. Residents said they received mail from other addresses in the town or from other towns like Rutherford and East Rutherford. Mail is delivered already opened, late, or items never received like invitations, birthday cards, packages, and bills. One resident incurred a late fee because she said she never received her bill.
Borough administrator Christopher Eilert said the borough is aware of it, saying the town had "major mail issues pre-COVID." He explained the Borough is drafting a letter from Mayor Paul Sarlo to Congressman Bill Pascrell.
