Will the City Replace My Mailbox If It Is Hit By a Plow?

Yes, properly installed mailboxes that are accidentally toppled by the blade of a snowplow will be replaced by City crews as soon as time and weather allow.  Please report damage by calling 651-730-2740.

During the winter, to ensure mail delivery, please clear snow away from the front of your mailbox. Year-round, between the hours of 8 AM and 6 PM, Monday through Saturday, the area directly in front of any mailbox, and ten feet out from each side of the mailbox, needs to remain clear of vehicles to allow easy access to the mailbox by mail carriers.
