RE: Mailbox Location and Installation
Dear Mendon Resident:
When installing your mailbox, your convenience and that of the mail carrier is what first comes to mind. But, you may not realize that there a third party to consider: The Highway Department.
Almost all mailboxes are installed within the highway right-of-way, and that requires that mailboxes be installed in a proper manner. Although every effort is taken to avoid post/mailbox damage, it occasionally occurs when roadways are being plowed.
When installing your mailbox, the Highway Department requests that you consider the following:
The Town of Mendon's policy is to replace any mailbox and/or post damaged by the Highway Department with a standard metal mailbox and 4" x 4" treated wooden post.
If you have any questions, please contact my office.
William E. Smith,
