Mailbox Questions

Mailbox Damage Caused by Road Commission Operations:
Occasionally, the Road Commission, as a result of its daily activities such as grading and snow plowing, may accidentally strike, knock down or damage a mailbox. Because of statutory responsibility of the Road Commission to maintain the roadways and County right-of-ways, the agency is not held liable or responsible for any damage caused to private installations located within those roads and/or right-of-ways. However, the Road Commission shall offer the owner a replacement post and mailbox, which will be available at the Road Commission office. The owner shall contact the Road Commission and pick up the replacement post and mailbox within thirty (30) days of the incident. Replacements will not be available after this thirty (30) day period.
The Road Commission reserves the right not to offer a replacement post and mailbox if they feel the replacement is not justified.
