Mailbox and LampPost
Responsibilities as Homeowners
Each homeowner has a few responsibilities to keep the neighborhood safe and looking its best:
1. Please keep lamppost lit and replace bulbs as needed.
2. Keep lawn free from weeds.
3. Keep mailbox in good condition.
To touch up an existing lamppost, go to Menard's in Hales Corner-Paint Dept. and ask for the file for Champions Village.
They will mix the custom colors for you. They are in quart size and the cost would be around $25.00 for both.
You would just need a wire brush to scrape, primer and paint.
To obtain a new lamppost, order the following items from BBC Lighting in Milwaukee.
Here are the new prices received (July 2022) from BBC to replace a lamppost:

Part2 Maxim 1092BK/PHC11 - new price $319.95
(old price $171.20)

There is also a showroom in Wauwatosa at 72nd and North, Elektra Lights. Owners are Linda Bishop & Becky Kruschke. 414-257-1300.
Poles can’t always ship UPS so working with a company that includes freight costs is the way to go. You’ll have to pick them up at their stores, but there will be little to no freight costs this way.
Please do not order from Wayfair.com until further notice.
Mailbox and Lamppost replacements are the two property issues facing all of us when it comes to replacement in the next couple of years. We recommend all of you start budgeting for these.
