Mailboxes: Is your mailbox installed properly?
During the winter, unstable mailboxes and decaying
wood posts are more likely to be damaged from heavy
snow coming off the snow plows. Residents should be

that are damaged by snow from the plows. Residents
need to be sure their mailbox is securely fastened to the
post and that the post is in good condition, securely set
