Mailbox Policy

Village snow plow operators try very hard to avoid mailboxes when plowing streets. However, weak posts or support brackets, rusted mailbox components and improperly placed mailboxes could result in damage.

If your mailbox does not meet the placement guidelines (guidelines can be found at, the village will not replace ore reimburse for damage.
  • The village will provide reimbursement up to $50.00 (receipt is necessary).
  • Claims must be received by May 1 and must be accompanied by a picture of the damage and receipt(s) for replacement materials. Claims will be reviewed and forwarded to the Village Board for approval.
  • Village crews will install the replacement mailbox or repair the mailbox upon request.
The Village of Waunakee Mailbox Policy does not pertain to private drives.
