GRANDVIEW HEIGHTS, OH (WCMH) — Frustration is mounting for several Grandview Heights residents, many of whom have reported inconsistent mail service for at least the past year.

“It’s just more of an annoyance,” explained Katie Wilkinson. “I’d say in the last year, it’s been the most noticeable.”

Wilkinson said it has become the norm for mail to be delivered to the wrong address, in the area.

She also said, oftentimes at least once a week, her family receives no mail on days when there should be A delivery.

“I think just consistent, and a better level of attention to detail when it comes to who’s getting what delivered to their home would be great,” she said.

Thien Mach, who lives in an area apartment, said he often receives mail several days after it should have arrived.

“I would say for close to six months, it’s been a little hit and miss,” Mach explained. “It is a concern.”

NBC4 reached out to the United States Postal Service where spokesman David Van Allen wrote that service has not been significantly disrupted, unless impacted by a winter storm.

Van Allen also issued the following statement:

“I guess I would hope that it would be fixed quickly,” said Wilkinson. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
