The residents of Farrow Street are going to get a surprise in their mailbox today. Mail!!! In a letter which will be reported to Council tonight at their regular meeting from Michael Gee, Superintendent, writes that mail service will resume on Farrow Street today, Monday, November 18th.

“Canada Post has reviewed the situation regarding door to door delivery to homes on Farrow Street in Kitimat, following the Lengthy history of dog incidents. On November 18th, 2013, Canada Post will resume door to door delivery on Farrow Street, based on assurance from the dog owner that the dog will be securely restrained,” wrote Gee.

However, Gee writes that in the event of future incidents involving this dog ‘menacing’ his employees, Canada post will permanently change the delivery of mail to Farrow Street customers in the form of a Community Mail Box service and will install the equipment to support the change.

Council passed a motion earlier this year, on September 9th, to approve provisions for a temporary installation of a community Mail Box.

Gee adds: “We appreciate your assistance in working to resolve this safety issue, and we look forward to resumption of door to door delivery for residents of the street.”
