Chelsea has an aging population of mailboxes and posts. There is always a number of mailboxes that are hit either by heavy snow or by the snowplow because the box is too low to the ground or too close to the travel lane. Residents when working outside should consider updating their mailbox and support. Everyone enjoys home mail delivery but very little attention is paid to a homes mailbox.
Some design ideas are listed here. Be aware however that mailboxes are in the Towns right of way and are allowed to be there as a convenience to residents. These guidelines will not guarantee a box never gets hit but should significantly reduce the chances.
There is a need for residents to be appointed to the following Boards and Committees:
Planning Board, Budget Committee, Board of Assessment Review, Cemetery Committee and Road Advisory Committee
Contact the Town Manager for more information. Complete and return the volunteer application below to the Town Office.
