It is the County’s policy to reimburse the property owner for the cost of materials only if the mailbox was installed to the specifications below that have been approved by both the county and US Postal Service. In addition, no reimbursement is provided if the damage was caused by snow, ice or slush thrown by the plow blades.
It is the County’s policy that we only reimburse for damage done to mailboxes from direct contact by snow removal equipment. The county will reimburse the property owner if:
A Highway Department staff member confirms the damage was done by physical contact of the snow removal equipment with the mailbox and/or post that was installed to the correct specifications
The mailbox and post were in good condition before the damage occurred
The County will only reimburse the property owner for the cost of a standard U.S. Postal Service approved mailbox and post. The property owner must provide the county with a copy of their sales receipts to receive reimbursement
