Snow Removal Policy:
POLICY ON MAILBOX LOCATION
The Board of Selectmen have
adopted the following Policy in regards to mailboxes and their locations
adjacent to Town Roads and right-of-ways.
The Town of Weare will not be responsible for damage to mailboxes located in
the right-of-way of Town Roads.
Please instruct your
personnel to use every precaution possible to avoid any inadvertent striking
or pushing over a box. This is particularly true when the boxes are located
close to the Town's right-of-way.
The snow windrow must be
pushed back as far as possible for many reasons such as:
Space for future snow
Prevention of melting
snow water from running onto the pavement
To permit maximum
possible view of traffic on the roads
The Town cannot assume the
responsibility for striking or burying them, or for pushing them over due to
the weight of the snow windrow. Mailboxes located within road limits exist
by sufferance only with the responsibility assumed by the owner.
It is not possible for the
Town to replace or repair any type of structure erected by abutting land
owner within the right-of-way that has been damaged as a result of highway
maintenance or construction work.
