Highway Department issues snow reminder notices

11:16 AM, Jan. 17, 2013  |  Comments

With the snow season well under way, Kewaunee County Highway Commission Dale Jandrain released these two notices to remind the public about its policies with regard to mailbox repair and the law regarding pushing snow onto public thoroughfares.

Mailbox repair policy

The face or door of a mailbox should be located 8 inches from the outside edge of the shoulder or even with the back of curbing in curbed areas. Mailbox post shall be a 4-inch-by-4-inch post equivalent to withstand flying snow and slush from snowplows.

Kewaunee County Highway Department, as a courtesy, will replace a destroyed mailbox with a standard metal box upon evidence that our equipment hit the box during snow removal and that it was properly placed.

A Highway Department employee will review and make the sole determination of replacements.

Pushing snow

Pushing snow or leaving other materials onto or across highways can cause accidents and is prohibited by Wisconsin statutes 86.01 and/or 346.94(5), which deals with materials left in the travel portion of any highway. Fines of $50 are possible.

To avoid penalty and liability issues, cooperate with the Kewaunee County Highway Department and the Kewaunee County Sheriff's Department to provide safe travel for all.
