FAIRWAY, Kan. - Mail delivery in some Kansas neighborhoods is back to normal now that the postmaster reached a compromise with residents over safety.
The cluster boxes the Postal Service suddenly installed in Fairway and Leawood six weeks ago are now gone.
Mail carriers are once again delivering door-to-door.
The Postal Service made the change because of complaints of unrestrained dogs on some streets.
Residents said they're happy everyone will not be penalized for the problems of just a few - as they, too, care about the safety of their mail carriers.
"It did help educate people on what they need to do to watch after their pets, so they do have a safe environment,” said former Fairway mayor John St. Clair. “So, happily, as long as that is maintained, then we'll continue the mail service as it had been."
The Postal Service will monitor the situation to ensure dog owners hold up their end of the agreement.
