Winter Services Agreements
With a developer: There are certain new roads within housing developments that have not been accepted by the Township for maintenance. The developers of these roads sign a “Winter Services Agreement” with the Township. This establishes a commitment by the Township to plow these particular roads within that development for the snow season.
With PennDOT: There is also a winter services agreement between the Township and PennDOT for plowing the following State owned roads: Nagle Road and Moorheadville Road.
List of RoadsThere are State and Privately maintained roads within the Township limits. If the road you live on is on the following list then you receive either Private or State (PennDOT) maintenance. Otherwise, you receive winter services from the township. Click here for the list.
511PA – PennDOT511PA is Pennsylvania’s official travel information service which provides travelers with reliable, current traffic and weather information, as well as links to other transportation services. 511PA is designed to help motorists reach their destination in the most efficient manner when traveling in Pennsylvania.
Please check this list to see if we plow your road. If your road is listed here then Harborcreek does not plow your road and therefore will not repair / replace your mailbox.
It goes with the territory… as everyone who lives in Harborcreek knows, we receive a lot of snow. Mailboxes will get hit by our plows. This can be due to a lack of visibility, on-coming traffic crowding the road, boxes that are installed incorrectly, and yes…because we are not perfect.
That being said, all standard steel mailboxes (not plastic) installed to township specifications will be repaired or replaced if the damage occurred because of direct contact with the plow. When we inspect the mailbox we are looking for paint left behind from the plow, tire tracks, type and location of the damage, and posts that are not already rotted. Damage that occurs from heavy wet snow thrown against the pole / mailbox will not be repaired or replaced. Posts and mailboxes must be able to withstand the force of the plowed snow pushed to the sides of the street.
If mailbox damage occurs due to township snow removal services it can be reported by email using our contact form or call the township at (814) 899-3171. The examination, and subsequent repair or replacement of mailboxes will occur when time and weather permits.
