OPERATIONS: SNOW PLOWING                                                                       SECTION 12.7
MAILBOXES                                                                                                         PAGE 7 OF 12


Mailboxes and mailbox posts should be kept in good condition and secure in order to withstand unavoidable high force snow thrown from Chardon Township snow removal equipment.  If a mailbox or mailbox post is damaged due to snow thrown from Chardon Township equipment, Chardon Township will NOT repair or replace the damaged mailbox or post as it is the residents’ responsibility to ensure that these are kept in good condition and secure.  If a mailbox or post has been hit directly by Chardon Township equipment causing damage, Chardon Township will pay the resident $40 for such damage after it has been confirmed by the Chardon Township Road Superintendent that damage was in fact the result of being struck by Chardon Township snow removal equipment.  If any Chardon Township resident disagrees with the Road Superintendent’s determination, they have the right to have the Chardon Township Director of Public Service investigate the damage and make a final determination. 


Also, please be advised that Chardon Township is not responsible for removal of snow in front of the residents’ mailbox.

Snow Plowing Information

The Chardon Township Road Department asks that you follow these guidelines to make their job more efficient:

When your drive is plowed, do not push the snow into the street

Please keep your garbage cans behind your mailbox to avoid the snowplows

Do not leave cars parked in the street or in the road right of way when it is snowing
