Q. Why are there white square stickers inside mailboxes in the Crestwood neighborhood? They appeared in recent weeks. Also, why is there a white square painted on Judges Road and another on Market Street at the intersection with Judges Road?
A. U.S. Postal Service spokeswoman Monica Coachman said that the white stickers inside the mailboxes “are tray labels being used by a new carrier assigned to the route.”
“The carrier is familiarizing himself with the route information and names at each address, based on postal records. Our conscientious carrier is working to decrease the likelihood of misdeliveries that tend to be more possible when new carriers take over routes,” Coachman said.
Once the carrier is more familiar with the route, the labels will be removed, she said.
As for the white squares on Judges Road and Market Street, “we don’t have any information indicating they’re postal-related,” Coachman said.
