The Pipestone County Highway Department has adopted the following practice in regards to mailboxes along County maintained highways in order to eliminate hazardous mailbox supports and to help in snow removal efforts;
Pipestone County will provide and install a swinging mailbox support free of charge to residents along County maintained highways. Mail patrons are required to provide and install their own mailbox on the swinging support assembly. Pipestone County will also sell the swinging mailbox supports to residents living on non-County maintained highways at the County’s current cost.
Pipestone County does not install mailbox supports for new installations. Owners are encouraged to check with their local mail carrier or contact the Highway department for specification regarding compliant mailbox supports prior to placement. Pipestone County also does not relocate mailbox supports.
