WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The residents at Lake Ridge Commons no longer need a forwarding address or a trip to the post office to receive their mail.

Ann Taylor, who contacted WECT.com about the missed mail service, shared with the news room that letters are now delivered to the front office.

Taylor said she's still waiting for the new mailboxes to arrive, but she's happy to open her letters without leaving the building.

The developers of the apartment complex for senior citizens is in the process of phasing out the lowest boxes and adding new ones to the sides. The postal carrier for the area originally notified the Wilmington Post Master about mailboxes that seemed too low for senior residents.

A spokesperson for the USPS said the issue was the result of a misunderstanding with the developer.
