When a mailbox is damaged during snow and ice removal operations it shall be replaced or repaired by the mailbox owner and at the owner's expense. If a mailbox is damaged multiple times during the same winter season the Highway Commissioner will investigate into why this is happening so that the homeowner does not have to keep replacing their mailbox.
When placing a new mailbox or changing the location, please install a mailbox on a swinging arm. This will reduce the chances of damage done by snowplows, as they will push out of the way.
Contact the U.S. Postal Service for instructions as to installing a mailbox. They will tell you the height and distance off the road you should place the main pole or post.
