All Coast Metro Patrol was the hired for Sunset Junction Street Festival security

As the postal worker delivered mail yesterday to businesses along Sunset Blvd., he apologized to Joe Keeper of Bar Keeper for not delivering mail on Saturday. He said that Sunset Junction Street Festival security and staff would not let him inside the festival, even with his USPS issued ID and uniform, to deliver mail to the businesses, according to Keeper.

Yesterday, LAist posted a document signed by the festival organizer stating that admission could not be charged to a public street. But during the festival, staff said they were not honoring the document.

Larry Dozier, a spokesperson for the USPS told LAist that there have certainly been situations where mail can't be delivered, but alternative methods are usually made available. Offhand, he was not aware of this weekend's situation but said he would be able to comment on it soon.
