NEWS FLASH FOR February 28,2015

Attention all Residents. Since most mailboxes are within the legal right-of-way, it is up to the homeowner to make sure that their mailbox can withstand the weight of snow being thrown for a plow. Place a six to eight inch piece of reflective tape on the mailbox to help snow plow operators see it at night. Remove snow from around the mailbox, but avoid throwing it back onto the road. If the mailbox is located within the legal right-of-way and damage was experienced in the past, homeowners may want to consider relocating it before the next snowfall. Make sure the mailbox is firmly supported in the ground. This policy is similar to PennDOT’s in that they are not responsible for mailbox damage during snow events.
