News and Road Work Information


The Township of South Hanover Public Works Crews pay close attention to avoid mailboxes in the right-of-way. Mailboxes are rarely hit by plows, however a mailbox with a weakened support may be toppled by the snow rolling off the end of the snowplow which is not an approvable claim. The Township is not responsible for damage caused by plowed snow. The Public Works Department is asking homeowners to inspect and evaluate the condition of their mailbox and its support prior to the onset of winter weather. The mailboxes and the posts that support them may require maintenance or replacement. Residents should make sure mailboxes are firmly attached to the post and the post is constructed sturdily enough to withstand the weight of the snow as it comes off the end of the snowplow. Homeowners should also check the placement of their mailbox to ensure that it is not leaning into the street. Residents are also reminded that they are responsible for clearing their mailbox area of snow to ensure mail delivery.
Please refer to the Township Newsletter for more on Winter Weather preparedness.
