Default Crooked Street Light Citrus Grove

We live on a newly constructed street in Citrus Grove and have a very noticeably crooked public street light. Who would be responsible for fixing it? There are two home sites still awaiting construction on the road, but I am worried it will stay that way because all construction is complete on the effected side. I think there is more than one builder so would anyone know who to contact? It seems ridiculous to pay so much for a view site home and see the poor quality of the infrastructure. Maybe someone who does quality control? Is it already a Wildwood city issue or a Sumter County problem? Like I said, the road is still awaiting construction on two more lots. The bond isn’t cheap and I don’t want to pay for garbage.

Call SECO electric company

They will assess the damage and replacement time frame.

You could have stopped after the second sentence……was the rant really necessary?

There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile, He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile; He bought a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse, And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

The rant was filled with irrelevant and false information, along with some poorly thought out assumptions.

I would call the warranty department to see if they can tell you who is responsible for it.

My exact thoughts, but some never give up the chance to damn something the Developer created.

Really OP? With all the beauty created, do you really think a lamp post would be left that way.

Welcome neighbor to TOTV where friendliness abounds here in "The Villages, Florida's Friendliest Hometown." I'm surprised no one (has yet) said "If you don't like it move."

Are you saying the rant was warranted? Or just what is it you are trying to say"
