Mailbox and/or lawn damage

Occasionally roadside mailboxes or lawns are damaged when hit by a snow plow. Mailboxes that are hit by the snow clearing equipment will be repaired or replaced as determined by the Roads Department Supervisor. Mailboxes damaged by the snow that comes off the wing of the snow plow will not be eligible for repair or replacement. If damage occurs to a resident’s lawn, a crew will be deployed early in the spring to investigate and repair damaged areas. Please report damages to 3-1-1.
