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.
