Swinging Arm Mailbox
The Town of Alden encourages residents to have a safe stand for their mailboxes.
Many current mailbox stands with wood poles are poor for rural uses which include the plastic box. The box gets brittle when it is cold and the wood poles deteriorate after time. They are easily damaged by the snow coming off our Town plows.
The Town will install a Swinging Arm Mailbox post with the mailbox at your residence for just $95.00 (tax included).
If you would like to see one, we have one outside the Town Hall. These posts provide a safe alternative that should last many years.
