It is sad to go to the local Fairfield post office and witness long lines out the door, garbage piling up on the floor and overflowing garbage cans not being emptied.
I have lived and worked in Fairfield for 30 years and use the post office for personal and business almost daily and it has slowly become the most disgusting place in Fairfield to visit. There is not a business owner or citizen in Fairfield who would tolerate this mess in their own home or business. It is a health risk to all who enter or stand in the long lines.
I have emailed and called the post office over the years to complain, but no one in the Oakland regional office or Washington, D.C., is listening. Your concerns get routed back to the local postmaster, which is a waste of time. It is not the fault of the clerks who help customers as they try their best. Three clerks have retired in the past six months and a janitor has not been replaced, leaving four vacancies.
I encourage everyone to voice their concerns or it will only get worse. How long can you afford to stand in line? Do we wait until rodents and cockroaches run through the garbage in the lobby? They need to run the post office like a professional business and take care of the residents and businesses who must use the post office.
