 Winter Storm Policy

Mailbox Damage During Winter Storms and Snow Removal Operations

WINTER STORM POLICY: Responsibility for Fixing/Replacing Roadside Mailboxes

This policy applies to all Granville residents with roadside mailboxes.

Roadside mailboxes damaged by snow discharged from the snow plows will be at the cost and responsibility of the homeowner to fix or replace.

Roadside mailboxes damaged by the plow itself will be fixed or replaced by the Granville Highway Department.

.

The Highway Department fixes all mailboxes that are hit by the plow as soon as possible. If

the snow coming off the plow breaks the mailbox, we do not fix them.

Most mailboxes in Granville are closer to the pavement edge than recommended by the

postal service. Mailboxes and posts are in a poor state of repair and cannot with-stand heavy

snow coming off a plow.


Every mailbox that has ever been hit by an operator has been repaired with an apology for the inconvenience.

Any resident can call my cell phone at (413) 455-4446 to discuss mailboxes or any other Highway Department activities. The Highway Department can also be reached at (413) 357-8585 ext. 6.

 

Thank you,

 

The Granville Highway Department
