Residents in a Santa Maria neighborhood are receiving mail again after delivery was temporarily stopped due to an alleged dog attack.

Cluster mailboxes were placed on Agnes Avenue Friday to prevent future inconveniences from happening with the mail carrier.

The postal service sent a letter out to residents, saying a mail carrier was attacked by a loose dog at one of the homes. It caused USPS to stop delivering mail to the entire block.

Homeowners were upset their mail was having to be sent to alternative addresses because they were not receiving their bills and important medications.

USPS required homeowners on the street to pick up their mail from the post office. They were without mail service for more than two weeks.
