The town of Plainville’s policy regarding damage to mailboxes and/or posts during snow plowing operations is as follows:
The town will replace mailboxes and/or posts only if it is actually struck by the snowplow. There must be physical contact between the plow and the mailbox and/or post.
The town will not replace any mailboxes and/or posts constructed of inappropriate materials such as plastic and those damaged by the weight of the snow being discharged off the snowplow.
Residents are expected to maintain their mailbox and/or post in such a manner that it will withstand the pressure/impact of snow and ice cascading off the snowplow.
