[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Warwick 3-25-2004 by L.L. No. 1-2004. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Every owner or occupant of property shall install any mailbox solely in compliance with the rules and regulations of the United States Postal Service. The mailbox shall be installed in such a manner which will not interfere with the speedy and efficient removal of snow and/or ice from the road right-of-way by the Highway Department. The installation of a mailbox within any public right-of-way (25 feet from the center line of the road) shall be at the sole risk and liability of the owner or occupant of the abutting real property, and the Town of Warwick shall not be liable for any damage to any such mailbox, except as provided below.
When curbside mailboxes have been erected according to United States Postal Service specifications (Operations Manual Section 632.1, a height of 41 to 45 inches from the road surface and six to eight inches from the road edge), the Town's liability for snowplow-damaged mailboxes will be limited to repair or replacement not to exceed $50.
