Mail Boxes

Mailbox Guidelines
The Town Highway policy is not to replace or repair mailboxes by the impact of snow when plowing or due to snow removal.

To minimize the risk of danger:
  • The mailbox, including support arm, should have a minimum clearance of 44 inches above the road side shoulder,
  • The front of the mailbox should not extend beyond the edge of the shoulder;
  • The mailbox post should be a minimum of 16 feet from the center of the road;
  • Mailboxes should be clearly visible.
Mailboxes properly installed and maintained are generally not in conflict with snow and ice removal. Mailbox assembly shall not be constructed or installed in a manner that interferes with routine snow removal or in a manner, which clearly presents an unacceptable risk to snow removal operations or the traveling public.
