The Post Office does not complete snow removal at any of the cluster mailboxes in Columbia. Residents who use the cluster boxes are asked to take some time to ensure that the area in front of the box is shoveled and salted for the safety and convenience of all.
Of similar concern are the storm drains and fire hydrants. If you have one of these adjacent to your property, please ensure that it is shoveled to allow access in an emergency and the melting snows to drain and prevent street flooding. If you notice that the storm drains are blocked or clogged, please call Highways at 410-313-7450 or go to www.howardcountymd.gov/tellhoco.htm to report.
