Consider this when you winterize your mailbox.
When the State, County and Town of Riga install any object, (mainly signs) in the Right-of-Way; they always use breakaway post systems.
We would not do this unless forced to do so by the legal system.
So when you are inspecting and repairing your mailbox system, do you really want to use any post that is any stronger than a 4×4?
Check with your insurance company, if they will cover any post stronger than a 4×4.
If your mailbox system is damaged during snow removal operations the Town Board has authorized a 4×4 post and the standard size metal mailbox as the only replacements, regardless of what you have installed.
The highway crew will repair any mailbox system they damaged to serviceable condition, not necessarily a new system.
Whose Road is it anyway?
For your reference I have provided a list of roads in the Town of Riga and the municipal jurisdiction of each road. This helps explain the responsibility and the difference in services provided on each road. For example, dead deer killed in the road. The Town will pick-up and dispose of deer from a Town Road and we contract with the County to provide this service for their roadways.
The State on the other hand has contracted with a private vendor for this service on their highways. That’s why the Town Highway Department can remove a dead deer the day we receive notification, where the deer could remain for some time on a state Highway awaiting the vendor response.
Another example is roadside mowing; the Town mows Town roadsides and the County contracts with the Town to mow their roadsides. Where-as the State DOT mows the State highways.
