Plow Damage


The city does not assume liability for damages to obstacles in the road right-of-way (irrigation heads, landscaping, etc.). If possible, remove these obstacles from the right of way or mark them clearly to aid plow drivers.

Mailboxes are repaired or replaced only if the plow makes direct contact (sometimes snow from the plow can dislodge the box from the post or bend a weak post). Make sure your mailbox post is solid and securely fastened to the box.

Often, plow drivers literally "feel" their way along streets because of conditions, and regrettably lawns are cut up. If this happens to you, please report it to the Street Maintenance Department at (651) 450-4309. Damages are repaired each spring with black dirt and seed or sod.
