MAILBOX REMINDER

Check your mail box before the winter season. Check to make sure that it is not hanging over into the street and check the base to make sure that it is structurally sound. Only those mailboxes struck by a Borough plow or vehicle will be replaced by the Borough. Mailboxes that collapse or break due to rotten or defective bases will not be replaced. Those mail boxes that are replaced by the Borough will be replaced with a standard type mail box.
