Frequently Asked Questions

Will the Pomeroy Foundation pay for my damaged marker?

The Foundation does not pay for the replacement of markers that have been damaged (caused by cars, snowplows, vandals, etc.) or stolen. While markers are intended to be placed in areas where they can be viewed by the public, it is the grantee’s responsibility to carefully consider location. We strongly suggest that markers be installed far enough back from the roadway to mitigate the likelihood of being hit by a vehicle, including plows and trucks with large payloads. If damage or theft occurs, please consult your insurance provider.
