Atwater Council looks to control where mailboxes are located


ATWATER -- A recent increase in the number of mailboxes being installed on street corners and curbs has the Atwater City Council looking for ways to control their placement. "They seem to be popping up like mushrooms everywhere," said City Clerk Goldie Smith.

There's concern the mailboxes on city streets will interfere with snow plows, said Smith. Underground utilities may also be affected when people dig holes for posts.

Money may be a reason for the increase in mail boxes.
