Installing a New Mailbox?

Placing Mailboxes Correctly Can Help Avoid Damage from Snow Plows

If installing a new curbside mailbox is on your To Do list this summer, make sure you place it the proper distance from the curb to help avoid damage from snow plows this winter.

Plows are big pieces of machinery and they are pushing heavy amounts of snow off the roads. Sometimes mailboxes are damaged in the process. But placing the mailbox the proper distance from the curb can help minimize the chance your mailbox will be damaged during plowing.

Adding reflectors to the mailbox also helps increase their visibility.

Remember to call to start/stop utilities

Make sure you contact the Utility Billing office at 630.377.4426 to start or stop your utility service. We require one business day's notice to set up service or schedule final readings. We do not take daily readings so we are unable to back-date bills. Also, we will only work with the account holder regarding utility service. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
