Mailbox Replacement Policy
The Huron County Highway Department has approximately 226 lane miles of roadway to clear of ice and snow during any given storm. This is done on a normal basis with eight trucks and very skilled drivers. This mileage does not include the travel distance to start each route. Depending on visibility and road conditions the average time for each driver to complete each round is three to four hours. There has also been a safe speed established of 30 to 40 mph while plowing snow.
The mailboxes along these county roads are of importance to us and we do not try to destroy them on purpose. However, due to weather conditions, some do get damaged. Factors that may lead to box damage may include, the amount of snow on the road, the wetness of the snow, and the distance of the mailbox from the road.
Stop for a second to ponder this thought… One snowball the size of a regular mailbox may weigh six pounds. Now imagine that six-pound snowball traveling at 30 mph and hitting your mailbox. Many times it is the snow, not the plow, that does the damage to the mailbox.
The Huron County Highway Department will replace the mailbox if the following conditions were met:
The Huron County Highway Department will replace the mailbox with one standard metal mailbox.
