Damaged Mailbox Policy
Mailboxes are sometimes damaged when snow plowing occurs. On most occasions, they are not damaged by the plow, but by the force of the snow as it is being pushed aside. While our drivers do their best to prevent this from happening, mailbox damage is an unavoidable consequence of removing snow from the County roads.
While government agencies are not required to replace mailboxes located in the public right-of-way, Crawford County will replace mailboxes damaged due to snow plowing operations. Replacement will consist of a standard mailbox (approximately 7″ wide x 9″ high x 19″ long) and a 4″ x 4″ treated wood post. In place of the installation of a new standard mailbox and post, the homeowner has the option of receiving a check for $25.00.

Certain areas of Crawford County are subject to periodic flooding, which may cause serious damage to properties within these areas. Relief is available to affected property owners in the form of federally-subsidized flood insurance. Crawford County has adopted regulations for areas of special flood hazard that are necessary for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program.
Floodplain maps are available for viewing at the Crawford County Engineer’s Office during normal business hours.
