The City does NOT allow NEW mailboxes to be installed within City maintained public rights-of way (ROW), because it is impractical for property owners to keep mailboxes clear of snow during the winter plow season when City plow operations are occurring 24/7. Mailboxes inevitably get damaged by snow plowing activities (either by the City or private contractors). These issues result in the USPS being unable to deliver mail in a timely, consistent manner.
(Example: condominium HOA installs a group mailbox within the complex’s parking lot or private driveway)
are allowed, provided they do not create a snow plowing or safety issue. If the location of an existing mailbox is deemed to be a safety issue or creates an undue burden on the City’s snow plowing activities, that existing mailbox may be required to be removed from the City’s ROW.
Any citizen who would like to inquire about an existing mailbox located on City streets/ROWs within McCall City limits is encouraged to contact:
