City officials say as many as 30 roadside mailboxes in the Rosecliff neighborhood were damaged during plowing that followed this weekend's snowstorm, the first significant snowfall of the season. The boxes can be seen on a drive through the neighborhood, which is located off Bodwell Road.One has been strapped back to the post with bungee cords. Some are sitting on a platform vertically, still capable of receiving mail. Others remain on the ground, where they ended up after being struck by a plow Sunday.
Bennett's box was damaged, despite the three reflectors he installed beside it. He his mailbox should last until spring, when the city said it will replace the damaged post.
Bennett said the driver stopped then kept going. As he went down the street, he kept stopping and then going forward, Bennett said.
