Reflective address markers are available through the Township Fire Department. The green markers with white numbers can be ordered with a steel post, or without if you are installing the sign on an existing mailbox post. The signs can be picked up or arrangements for installation by a Fire Department volunteer may be requested. The cost for the marker is $15.00 (with or without the post).
