The Township does not prohibit property owners from placing mailboxes within the limits of the legal right-of-way, as it is recognized that the Post Office has certain placement requirements regarding the location of mailboxes. However, since these mailboxes are not placed under permit regulations, they are technically deemed to be an encroachment, which is placed and remains at the risk of the property owner. Therefore, the Township is not liable for damages caused by snow removal or other highway maintenance operations to mailboxes, fencing, shrubbery, grass, trees, etc. which are located in the right-of-way.

We truly make every effort to avoid any damage and we appreciate your understanding!
