Mailboxes and Driveways – Snow

MAILBOXES and DRIVEWAYS

 

York Township will not compensate property owners should their mailbox, or any other object become damaged due to the removal of snow from Township roads. Any object placed in the road right-of-way, including a mailbox, fence, landscaping, etc. is placed there at the owner’s risk.  The public right of way is on average 50 feet wide (25 feet from the center of the roadway).

 

It is suggested that you wait until after all plowing is complete before shoveling out the end of your driveway.  If you do shovel out before the plows have come thru try to clear a spot upstream of your driveway.  This will allow the snow from the plow to unload before the driveway.  It won’t prevent all snow from going back in front of your driveway but it will reduce the amount.  The snow must be plowed from the street, therefore all driveways and properties will be affected to some degree.
