Mailbox Policy

All new mailboxes should be set back 18” face to road edge. The town would provide gravel to make a path for the mailman to get to the box. Present boxes would be grandfathered but if replaced should comply with this rule.

Dennis also reported that when the plow hits a mailbox, not the snow coming off the plow, the township should pay for it, perhaps a limited amount. Dan Peterson moved that if the plow hits the mailbox the town should pay for it up to $30. D C Harned seconded. Motion passed unanimously. (From the 2007 Annual Meeting)
