Andalusia Housing Authority Director Lena Boswell said Wednesday she is still awaiting arrival of the new cluster boxes to install before mail delivery service can be reinstated at West Haven apartments.

“I have the confirmation,” she said. “And we are hoping they will be here by next week.”

Mail delivery has been suspended to the apartment complex since a June 25 incident in which a threat of injury or attack by dogs roaming loose,” for the local letter carrier, USPS spokeswoman Debra Fetterly said.

Fetterly said she received confirmation that the boxes have been ordered.

Until the boxes are delivered and installed, residents may continue to pick up their mail from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Wednesday and Friday. On Thursdays and Saturdays, they can pick up mail from 9 a.m. until noon.
