[Res. 1/2/2001A]
The Township does not prohibit property owners from placing mailboxes within the limits of the legal right of way, as it is recognized that the post office has certain placement requirements regarding the location of mailboxes.
However, since these mailboxes are not placed under permit regulations, they are technically deemed to be encroachments, which are placed and remain at the risk of the property owner. Therefore, Shrewsbury Township is not liable for damages to mailboxes, fencing, shrubbery, trees, etc., caused by snow removal or other maintenance operations where the same are located within the limits of the legal right of way.
