POSTAL SERVICE ASKS CUSTOMERS TO HELP OUT BY CLEARING WALKS, STEPS AND ACCESS TO MAILBOXES

 COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Postal workers throughout Ohio are busy carrying on the proud tradition of delivering mail, despite recent adverse conditions caused by heavy snowfall.
 But snow and ice has caused some delays, especially in eastern Ohio where many roads are impassable and a state of emergency has been declared in several counties.
 Portions of southeastern Ohio still remain without electricity and phone service, but the Postal Service is operating as near to regular schedules as possible. Delays in mail delivery have occurred only where roads are impassable or local law enforcement officials have prohibited travel.
 Postal managers say that both rural and city carriers will make every reasonable attempt to deliver mail and service will continue on schedule as soon as roads are cleared and conditions allow.
 Customers who live in rural areas are asked to clear snow from the area around their mailboxes. City delivery customers are asked to help by clearing their walkways and steps which lead to their mailboxes to help ensure the safe passage of their carriers.
 Currently, most post offices are open regular hours.
 Customers are reminded that stamps are available without additional surcharge at many area stores' check-outs. Just look for the U.S. Postal Service "Easy Stamp" emblem.
 For questions about local mail delivery, contact your postmaster.
