1. The Mason County Road Commission (MCRC), as a result of its daily activities, such as grading and snowplowing, may accidentally strike, knock down, or damage a mailbox. Because of statutory responsibility of the road commission to maintain the roadways and county right-of-ways, the road commission is not held liable or responsible for any damage caused to private installations located within those roads and/or right-of-ways.
2. If we hit a mailbox with our equipment, our sign department will go out and replace it with a standard mailbox and post. If it was from the snow or ice off the blade, the owner must come pick it up from our office. The road commission shall offer the owner a replacement post and mailbox, which will be available at the Mason County Road Commission office.
3. The owner shall contact the road commission and pick up the replacement post and mailbox within thirty (30) days of the incident. Replacements will not be available after this thirty (30) day period.
4. The road commission reserves the right not to offer a replacement post and mailbox if they feel the replacement is not justified.
