Action taken against Fargo postal worker after getting caught tossing package

After a Valley News Live investigation highlighted more mail problems within the city of Fargo we are told that action has been taken against an employee. We're told administrative action was taken against the letter carrier seen in the video above for getting caught tossing a package onto a porch in the Fox Run neighborhood. Postal service spokesman David Rupert declined to say what action had been taken instead he apologized in a written statement which you can see below. We also specifically asked Rupert what the postal service was doing to improve mail delivery in south Fargo and West Fargo but he refused to answer the question.

Response from USPS:

"Thank you for giving us the opportunity to respond.

We apologize to the customer for this failure in service. Be assured, appropriate action will be taken in this isolated case. It does not reflect the careful efforts of the thousands of professional, dedicated letter carriers in our Workforce, including the more than 150 delivery Personnel serving 40,000 Fargo addresses
