City to fix plow-damaged mailboxes

WEST CARLETON – Was your mailbox damaged this winter by a passing City of Ottawa plow?

Report the damage and the city will repair your mail’s home under certain circumstances.

During the winter months, occasionally mailboxes may get damaged by passing snow plows. Mailboxes will be repaired or replaced as determined by the city’s Roads Department supervisor.

Mailboxes damaged by the snow that comes off the wing of the snow plow will not be eligible for repair or replacement. Mailboxes will be replaced by something basic.

Damaged posts will be replaced by a temporary one with permanent repairs undertaken after the frost is gone. To report a damaged mailbox, call 3-1-1 or report it via
