Upon notification, a representative from the city public works department will inspect the mailbox and determine whether or not the mailbox was properly installed, whether the material was in good condition, and if it was struck by a city vehicle. While it is being assessed, a temporary mailbox will be erected. Mailbox damage caused by snow being propelled into the air from a plow truck will not be eligible for replacement.
