Will the Village replace my mailbox if it is damaged by a snowplow?

Yes, the Village will replace mailboxes that have been damaged through direct contact with a snow plow, if the original mailbox was installed in compliance with Village regulations. If your mailbox is hit, a temporary repair will be made so that you can continue to receive mail delivery. When winter ends and the ground thaws, final repairs will be made. If replacement of the mailbox or post is required, a standard metal size mailbox and 4x4 wood post will be installed. Contact the Public Works Department at 630.823.5700 immediately to report mailbox damage.
