Snow plow drivers make every effort to plow as close to the edge of the
street as possible. But during heavy snowfalls, especially on
cul-de-sacs, it is very difficult to completely clear the snow without
risking damage to mailboxes or posts. Therefore, it is the
responsibility of the resident to remove snow from around the mailbox to
assure uninterrupted delivery of mail.
If you believe your curbside
mailbox was damaged by a Village snow plow, call the Public Works
Department at 708-246-3154 to report it. Every effort will be made to
repair your mailbox. If that is not possible, it will be replaced with a
standard-issue metal mailbox and/or wood post. The Village is not
responsible for mailboxes damaged during snow plowing if the original
mailboxes violate Village Code. The Village will not repair mailboxes
damaged by non-Village vehicles.
