The Mission Township Board would like residents to convert their mailbox supports to a ‘Swing-Away’ support to ensure damage is not done to mailboxes during the snow plowing season. Currently this ‘Swing-Away’ support is only required by Crow Wing County residents who live on a county road. The ‘Swing-Away’ is designed for the plow blade to pass under the mailbox, if snow is thrown the support will swing out of the way not causing damage to the mailbox.
The ‘Swing-Away’ supports can be purchased at the Highway Dept. at 16589 Cty. Rd. 142 in Brainerd. The cost is $55.00 plus $4.06 tax. If residents express interest in obtaining the ‘Swing-Away’ supports, the Township will make the kits available at the Town Hall for the same cost. Please contact the Mission Town Clerk at 218-765-4377 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in purchasing the ‘Swing-Away’ mailbox supports.
