Reminder regarding the City's Mailbox Replacement Policy
Unfortunately, in the normal course of snow plowing damage may occur to mailboxes. If the accumulated snow being removed damages the mailbox it is not the responsibility of the City of Olmsted Falls to make permanent repairs. The City will, however, make every attempt, as soon as snow removal is complete, to do a temporary repair to the mailbox so that mail may be received.
In the event that any mailbox is damaged as a result of negligence by the City, that is any mailbox which is actually hit by the truck or snowplow blade the City will replace it. It will be replaced with a treated 4 x 4 post and a treated 4 x 4 extension. The actual mailbox will also be replaced with a standard mailbox. The City will NOT replace any specialty mailboxes.
