Mailbox policy winter maintenance

During winter operations, snow ploughing vehicles or the pushing of snow may result in the damage of mailboxes located on municipal roads. Mailboxes are considered an obstruction on municipal roads and are permitted as a convenience since Canada Post rural delivery service will not enter within private driveways. As such, the Township of Champlain Road Department employees and contractors will attempt to avoid any destruction or damages to private mailboxes, however, will not be responsible for the replacement, installation, or reimbursement of costs for damages to mail boxes.

Residents are advised to ensure the proper location and rigid construction of their mail boxes to avoid any inconvenience.

Excerpt from Schedule B (section 4.2.4) of By-Law 2019-54, being a by-law to establish road maintenance standards and road classifications for highways within the jurisdiction of the Township of Champlain.
