During the winter months snow will accumulate along the roads and on park strips. Mailboxes improperly installed or with older posts may not stand up to the rigors of winter and if broken will be the responsibility of the homeowner. The city will replace any mailboxes and/or posts physically struck by a snowplow during the plowing process that have been placed correctly.
Where to place the Mailbox
Installing the Mailbox post
The best mailbox supports are stable but bend or fall away if a car hits them. The Federal Highway Administration recommends:
- A 4"x4" wooden support or a 2" -diameter standard steel or aluminum pipe.
- Avoid unyielding and potentially dangerous supports, like heavy metal pipes, concrete posts, and farm equipment (e.g., milk cans filled with concrete).
- Bury your post no more than 24" deep.
