Residents say mailbox lock was vandalized in Houston neighborhood
HOUSTON – Residents of the Brenwood Subdivision said their cluster mailbox had been vandalized and smashed for two months.
Tony McCalpine said the lock on the mailbox was broken, leaving the back door open and the mail unsecured.
“I contacted the post office to find out what was going on and received little or no information. we were just told to pick up our mail from the Park Row post office, it’s about 8 miles from us which is a big inconvenience, ”he said.
McCalpine said he contacted the Neighborhood Homeowners Association about the matter, but said there was still no solution.
“I informed him (the HOA) that when I spoke to the post office they expressed that the HOA would replace the mailbox, but he said the post office is supposed to do it,” he said. he declared.
The Brenwood Subdivision HOA said it will submit the latest information to its board of directors to determine how best to serve its residents.
