The Village of Vernon Hills Snow and Ice Policy indicates that Public Works is responsible for plowing snow from the streets when two (2) inches or more of snow has accumulated. To accomplish this task, the Village plows snow curb to curb, which means they may come in contact with mailboxes. The Village will provide reimbursement or repair up to $50.00 for any mailbox that the Public Works Department damages during a snow event unless the mailbox is in need of repair.
In the fall the Public Works Department conducts a Village wide inventory to determine what mailboxes are in need of repair, those that require replacement, or those mailboxes that necessitate a simple adjustment are not eligible for reimbursement unless repairs are made prior to the first snow fall. Public Works notifies residents of these pre-existing damages in writing prior to the first snow fall. Residents are asked to make the appropriate repairs and contact Public Works at (847) 367-3726 for re-inspection. Residents who fail to do so may not request reimbursement if damage occurs to your mailbox as a result of snow plowing.
