The new mail delivery does not satisfy the inhabitants of Saint-Maurice-les-Brousses

It was not an April Fool’s Day! “ Since April 1, all municipalities in the Nexon postal sector have morning mail delivery except Saint-Maurice-les-Brousses », Regrets the mayor of the town, Georges Dargentolle.

The elected representative also regrets not having been contacted by La Poste services, “We could have found a more suitable solution, in particular thanks to the counter factor at the Saint-Maurice-les-Brousses post office and thus rediscover a little common sense by putting in place a negotiated organization, less comical and more adapted to the population ”.

A new organization which according to La Poste “has [pourtant] is subject to prior consultation with agents and staff representatives, as well as with local elected officials. »Not sure that everyone has the same definition of the word concertation …
