Please ensure that your mailbox follows the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) standards. The front mailbox and door should be 6 inches behind the back edge of the curb and 38 to 42 inches above the ground. If these guidelines are followed it will ensure that the City plows will not physically hit the mailbox. If your mailbox is damaged by a plow or by the force of snow coming off the plow, please contact the Department of Public Service and Engineering, Administrative Division at 614-342-4005.
