If your mailbox is knocked over during plowing operations, please take the following steps:
- Report that your mailbox was damaged to the Village online or by calling 847-658-2700.
- The Village will go out and temporarily repair or put a temporary box in place. They will then inspect the downed box to determine whether it was actually hit by the snowplow or the force of the snow.
- The Village will then put that box on a list to send a letter out to in the spring, with the options for final repairs or reimbursement.
A sample mailbox repair letter that is sent out in spring is available online. This letter points out the maximum amount of reimbursement and repair options that are available to the resident.
