Keep mailboxes, fire hydrants clear of snow

Article Published 01/05/2017

The United States Postal Service wants to remind all Layton residents that it's your job to keep the snow cleared in front of your mailbox.
Carriers need to be able to deliver your mail without dismounting from their vehicle.
So, if the snow piles up at the edge of the street in front of your mailbox, please make the effort to keep a full approach clear. That means a 30-foot-wide street clearance for many mailboxes.
Those who do not keep mailbox approaches clear may have their mail held at the Post Office until the situation is corrected.

-Also, residents should keep fire hydrants in their neighborhood clear of snow, so that they are not only visible, but accessible – if needed – as well.
