SNOW REMOVAL AND MAILBOXES
The Township is not responsible for damage to mailboxes caused by snowplows, since mailboxes are erected in the right of way at the property owner’s risk. To avoid problems, the supervisors suggest that mailboxes be placed as far from the right of way as possible and still permit access by mail carriers. The township’s right of way is 33 feet on most of the township roads. That means 16.5 feet from the center of the road.
We want to remind residents that it is unlawful to park on township roads during the months of October through March. Cars must be no less than four feet from the road in order for the Township Road Department to remove the snow from the edge of the pavement. It is also unlawful to push snow onto the roads creating a hazard.
