Regulations and Owner Responsibilities
Mailboxes are the responsibility of the homeowner and must be regulated to meet the requirements of the United States Postal Service (USPS). The front of the box should not extend over the curb, and the post should be placed firmly in the ground and not cracked, rotted or rusted. Please be sure that the box is attached securely to the post.
The Public Works Department will not be responsible for mailboxes damaged by a snowplow if the mailbox does not meet these postal requirements.
For questions concerning mailboxes, please contact the Public Works Department at (708) 444-5500.
