§ 127-1 Mays Landing Road mailbox placement.

Subject to the approval of the United States Postal Service and also subject to whatever conditions and requirements it may impose, mailboxes may be installed and maintained on both sides of Mays Landing Road. Residents whose current mailbox location is across Mays Landing Road from their residence may, but are not obligated to, move their mailbox to the other side of Mays Landing Road where their residence is located.

§ 127-2 Requirements for mailboxes.

All mailboxes in the Borough shall meet the requirements of the United States Postal Service in both design and placement.

§ 127-3 Damage to mailboxes.

A. 
The Borough of Folsom will replace or reimburse a homeowner for a damaged mailbox only if it is determined that:
(1) 
The mailbox is of standard design and placed in conformance with the requirements of the United States Postal Service.
(2) 
The existing installation, mailbox and mailbox post were in good condition and repair.
(3) 
Physical damage is documented to have been caused by actual contact by Borough equipment. The Borough is not responsible for damage caused by the weight of plowed snow.
B. 
Any replacement or reimbursement by the Borough will be for a standard metal mailbox, and no replacement or allowance will be made for the additional expense of a more-decorative or custom mailbox.

§ 127-4 Inappropriately placed mailboxes; violations and penalties; imminent hazards.

In the event that any mailbox is deemed by the Borough to be an obstruction or a road maintenance problem for the Borough Road Department, the owner of the mailbox shall be notified in writing if the mailbox does not comply with the requirements of the Borough, and the mailbox shall be relocated or replaced so as to conform. Upon such notification, the resident shall have 30 days to comply and, upon a conviction for failure to comply, shall be subject to a fine of not more than $50. The continuation of such violation for each successive day shall constitute a separate violation. If the mailbox is within the public right-of-way and is deemed by the Public Works Department to be an imminent hazard, the Public Works Department may remove such mailbox.
