Why do you plow so far away from my mailbox?
City crews plow as close to mailboxes as possible without risking damage to the box. Many times high snow banks cause snow to fall back into the street. This snow gets compacted by postal vehicles making it difficult to clear the entire width of the road in subsequent plowing. Residents are encouraged to clear the area in front of their mailbox after every plowing.
