Mailbox Damage Caused by Road Commission Operations:
Occasionally, the Road Commission, as a result of its daily activities such as grading and snow plowing, may accidentially strike, knock down or damage a mailbox. Because of statutory responsiblity of the Road Commission to maintain the roadways and County right-of-ways, the agency is not held liable or responsible for any damage caused to private installations located within those roads and/or right-of-ways. However, the Road Commission shall offer the owner a replacement post and mailbox, which will be available at the Road Commission office.
