Damaged Mailbox?

Mailboxes can be damaged by a snowplow in two ways:

  1. From snow coming off the plow.  The mailbox will not be replaced by the County.
  2. From being physically struck by plow.  The County will replace your mailbox.

SDG Mailbox Policy

What to do if your mailbox is damaged

  • Check to see if the mailbox was struck by the snowplow (look at the edge of the snow bank relative to where the mailbox was located);
  • If the snow coming off the plow caused the damage to the mailbox; the owner will have to repair it;
  • If the snowplow wing hit the mailbox, take some pictures of the snow bank and mailbox and contact Transportation and Planning Services.  A staff member will come and visit at our first available opportunity (during business hours).
