Mailbox Damaged by Snowplow

If a Department of Transportation (DOT), Division of Highway Services snowplow damaged a mailbox at a private residence, the County will install a standard post and mailbox at the residence as soon as all snow plowing is completed. Online users may report a damaged mailbox by clicking on the Create Service Request button below. Please complete all of the fields in the Contact Information section, provide the property address in the Service/Incident Address information section and provide a brief description of the request in the Brief Description field.

To report a non-standard mailbox, please file a claim with the County's Risk Management Division. Please see the topic entitled "Filing a Claim Against the County". In the meantime, DOT Highway Services will install a temporary mailbox.

A representative will investigate and respond to service requests within two (2) business days to repair or replace.
