Jason Ray clears snow from the sidewalk at Memorial Estates in Cottonwood Heights on Tuesday. Salt Lake Postmaster Steve Chaus is urging residents who haven't yet cleared their walks to do so to help keep carriers safe. “We want our carriers to return home healthy each night,” Chaus said in a statement. “Keeping a path clear to your mailbox will go a long way toward keeping our carriers safe and ensuring mail delivery each day.” If access is not safe, mailboxes are blocked and streets are impassable, postal carriers are instructed to refrain from delivering to locations they deem too hazardous.
