At times a mailbox will need to be replaced during the plowing season. Please be advised the Highway Department will not be responsible for repair or replacement of PLASTIC mailboxes and posts. The cold makes these mailboxes very brittle and they cannot withstand the snow force. The Highway Dept. will only repair or replace mailboxes that have a ROUND or 4X4 WOOD post, and a standard mailbox. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at (518) 584-4588.
