SHAKE YOUR MAILBOX!

 

Before winter takes hold and snow plows hit the roads, the Missaukee County Road Commission asks residents to prepare by shaking their mailbox. The road right-of-way is typically 66 feet wide, or 33 feet in each direction from the center of the road. A mailbox is the only object allowed by law that homeowners can place in the road right-of-way. Over the years, a mailbox post can rot or become wobbly. By grabbing and shaking it, a resident can know if it is secure. Snow coming off a plow going 35 miles per hour has surprising force that can topple a wobbly mail box. And digging a mailbox out and reinstalling it in frozen ground is no picnic. Our number one job is to maintain a safe and efficient road and right-of-way system. It is a resident's responsibility to ensure his or her mailbox is secure. Residents should prepare mailboxes for winter by tightening screws and ensuring the post and box are secure enough to endure large amounts of snow that are thrown. If the mailbox moves when shaken, the box may need to be repaired or replaced before winter. Metal mailboxes are recommended as plastic mailboxes shatter when snow hits it in very low temperatures. It is the policy of Missaukee County Road Commission to replace mailboxes only when the plow actually strikes the mailbox. If the mailbox is damaged by thrown snow, it is the responsibility of the homeowner to repair it. Make sure to "Shake Your Mailbox" before the snow flies so damage to posts and mailboxes can be prevented.
