Front of mailbox should be flush with the back of the curb and 39" to 42" from the top of the curb to the bottom of the mailbox.
Newspaper boxes and other containers should be set back a minimum of 6 inches from the back of the curb.
The post should be set back a minimum of 12 inches from the back of the curb.
You must call Gopher State One Call at 800-252-1166 before you do any digging.
Do not attach to utility poles or other public utility structures. A minimum of 12 feet in all directions from fire hydrants must be maintained.
All supports must be of sufficient strength to withstand the pressure of snow being pushed against them and constructed of material that will not quickly deteriorate, like treated lumber and iron. Mailboxes must be maintained so they will withstand all weather conditions.
