Mailbox Policy

Mailbox and/or Support Replacement Policy

(As revised at a regular meeting dated January 16, 2017)

A motion was made by Commissioner Matonich, 2nd by Vice-Chair D’Antonio, with all in favor to revise the current policy. Mailboxes and supports erected on county road right-of-way must comply with the following criteria:

  1. Mailbox is in the direction of the carrier’s route of travel, except on one-way streets.
  2. Mailbox height is between 42 inches and 48 inches above the road surface.
  3. Mailbox face is between 8 inches and 12 inches from the outside edge of the road shoulder or 6 inches to 12 inches from the curb.

Mailbox near an intersection is no closer than 100 feet from the intersecting road. Mailbox supports should be nominal 4 inch by 4 inch or 4½ inch diameter wood posts or 1½ inch to 2 inch diameter standard steel or aluminum pipe posts, embedded no more than 24 inches into the ground and are the maximum strength supports that should be considered.

If all of the above criteria are met concerning mailbox supports and location, and the mailbox or support is physically hit by county road commission equipment (this does not include snow that is discharged from the plow) the county road commission will then issue a $20 voucher to the property owner for the mailbox or a $30 voucher to the property owner for the mailbox & support.
