Mailboxes that comply with U.S. Postal specifications and are damaged as a result of direct contact by city snow removal equipment will be temporarily repaired or a portable mailbox will be set in place so mail service may be continued. The city will replace the damaged mailbox structure the following spring with a standard No. 1 black, white, or silver mailbox mounted on a 4- x 4-inch treated post.
Mailbox damage must be reported to the Public Works Department prior to May 1 of the current year to qualify for repair or reimbursement. Mailboxes which do not comply with U.S. Postal specifications or are damaged due to snow deposited from plows (versus being hit by city snow removal equipment) will not be replaced. The city does not take responsibility for damage to media or paper boxes and does not repair them.
