MAILBOX DAMAGE DUE TO WINTER PLOWING
The Wenham Board of Selectmen voted unanimously, at their September 17, 2002 meeting, to establish the following policy:
In the event of mailbox damage due to snow plowing, on mailboxes that are properly installed outside of the public right-of-way, the Town will either replace the mailbox or offer a comparable cash reimbursement to the homeowner. In either the installation or cash reimbursement scenario, the Town will only authorize the use of a standard, government issue mailbox, and any valid reimbursement requests will be based on the value of said mailbox style. No exceptions will be made for damaged mailboxes that have a higher value.
All claims must be filed with the Wenham Highway Department within 30 days of the incident.
