Mailbox Installation Guidelines

Here are some helpful guidelines to follow when placing your mailbox:

  • Position your mailbox 41″ to 45″ from the road surface to the bottom of the mailbox or point of mail entry.
  • Place your mailbox 6″ to 8″ back from the curb. If you do not have a raised curb, contact your local postmaster for guidance.
  • Put your house or apartment number in the mailbox.
  • If your mailbox is on a different street from your house or apartment, put your full street address on the box.

Winter Maintenance

If the mailbox is not in accordance with the above guidelines and is hit by the plow truck the Village will cover the costs for replacement. For questions, please contact the Public Works Department at (608) 839 - 5813
