Please be aware that the Department of Public Works may not reimburse for mailboxes damaged during snow plowing operations, with the exception of mailboxes directly hit by a town vehicle.  In that event, investigation and final determination of the claim will be made by the Department of Public Works administration.  Damage due to snow throw or wood decay will not be repaired/reimbursed. Anything installed within the Town's right-of-way (i.e., fence, mailbox, etc.) is placed there at the owner's risk.
