Does everyone know that the local mail that used to be processed in nearby Goleta is now shipped to Santa Clarita, roughly 25 miles from the city of Los Angeles? Even if the envelope is to be sent within the same ZIP code, it is still sent to Santa Clarita in Los Angeles County.
The machinery for processing used to be done in Goleta. For some unknown reason and expense, it is now sent to a city 1 hour and 34 minutes away.
Santa Clarita is 78 miles from the city of Santa Barbara. That means if a letter was mailed at the downtown Post Office, intended for a local address, it will be traveling 156 miles out of the way. How can this be justified?
I asked people working at the Post Office and they told me they have no idea why. I’m not really satisfied with this response. I feel there should be some accountability, don’t you? How can such waste of time and energy be condoned? I suggest you also ask this question. This makes no sense.
