Why does the plow leave snow at my driveway and mailbox?
As the plow moves down the street, the snow rolls off the edge of the blade, discharging snow into driveways and around mailboxes. The City is unable to clear access to individual mailboxes or driveways, and cannot prevent snow from being pushed near them during street plowing. It's a good idea to check mailboxes before winter weather arrives to make sure they are stable and behind the curbline.
