Rootstown Township Road Department

Mailbox Policy

Mailboxes and supporting post must be installed to withstand the rigors of snow removal, including the force of snow pushed from the street to the roadside.

Mailboxes should be around 15" away from the edge of the road. The township will repair or replace mailboxes that are actually struck by a township truck, plow and/or tractor. Usually a paint mark or tire tracks supply evidence of a mailbox strike. A standard 4x4 post and a standard mailbox will be installed.

The homeowner has the option to receive the current market value of the standard mailbox and/or post in lieu of replacing their mailbox.

The township does not replace mailboxes and/or posts that crack or break from the force of plowed snow, or because of improperly installed.

Any questions or concerns please contact the township road department at 330-325-7715.


Rootstown Township currently has approximately 41.07 miles of township roads. Each year the Portage County Engineer issues an annual Road Mileage Report.

In addition to supplying needed technical support to our township, the Portage County Engineer issues a recommendation to the Township to accept responsibility for new streets that the Engineer certifies are to current county standards.
