  • REMINDER: With winter approaching, residents are asked to remove any personal decorations, items, vehicles or trailers at roadside to avoid causing a dangerous situation with the plowing of snow. The Town will not be responsible for damage to property left in the path of the plows. If a vehicle or trailer is left at roadside and hinders the plowing of snow, it will be towed at the owner's expense. Residents are also reminded of the Town Policy concerning mailboxes and plowing. The policy states:

"In line with State and County policies, the Town of Dannemora will not replace mailboxes that are damaged during snow removal from Town roads, or those County roads that are under contract with the Town of Dannemora.

An exception to this policy is if the mail receptacle is damaged due to negligence on the part of the plow operator. This negligence is defined as actual contact with the mail receptacle by the equipment, witnessed by the owner or other persons willing to confirm that they witnessed the action. Additionally acceptable is if evidence exists in the form of obvious tire tracks, etc. The act of the plowed snow hitting/damaging a receptacle does not constitute negligence.

Any request for reimbursement, if the proof of negligence is provided, shall be made to the Town Supervisor’s office only. Mail receptacle replacement will be in the form of an equal quality receptacle. The Town will retain ownership of the damaged receptacle. If the receptacle has been removed and the Town does not have the damaged piece, the replacement type will be at the Town’s discretion."

Additionally, If you are a seasonal resident with a mail receptacle at the roadside, it is recommended the receptacle be removed until you return to avoid any possible damage.
