We suggest the mailbox face be placed a minimum of one foot behind the front face of the curb or the edge of pavement. Please check your mailboxes prior to the snow season for stability and make repairs or replace prior to the cold weather.
Damage to Mailboxes
Most times mailboxes are damaged from the force of the snow being pushed off the road and not by the plow hitting it.
The Town of Middleton does not replace
mailboxes unless a plow, working for the Town, goes off the roadway and
physically hits the mailbox.
