The installation of mailboxes on city-owned right-of-way is permitted. The mailbox owner assumes all risks of damage, except when a mailbox is damaged through direct contact with snow removal equipment.
If a mailbox is damaged due to direct contact with snow removal equipment, the City, at its option, will repair, replace or reimburse the property owner.
To notify the City of a damaged mailbox, please submit an online form at www.ankenyiowa.gov/mailbox. If the City of Ankeny hit your mailbox and it is unusable, we will loan you a temporary mailbox.
