  • Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
    Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities uses a mass e-mail notification system as a method of keeping residents updated with various information ranging from power outages and policy-related issues to monthly newsletters and upcoming community events. Other urgent information can also be sent via e-mail to reach residents as quickly and efficiently as possible.
    E-mail addresses for the mass e-mail system are obtained when residents sign their lease. To add or change an e-mail address, send an e-mail to fhc@themichaelsorg.com or contact the Community Management office at (913) 682-6300.
    Decoration removal
    Residents are reminded to remove all holiday decorations within two weeks following the holiday.
    Snow, ice removal
    Residents are responsible for the removal of snow and ice between any common sidewalk or road and the front or back door and driveways.
    Residents are asked not to use salt products to deice around their homes because it can damage the concrete. Less corrosive and pet-safe ice melt products are available for purchase in retail stores.
    Tree disposal
    Barren Outdoor Solutions will be picking up live Christmas trees daily through Jan. 12. Residents need to place trees on the curb without lights or ornaments. Artificial trees will not be picked up.

    Utilities tip
    When using the oven, it’s tempting to open the door to check on a dish’s progress. But because the hot air that is contained in the oven is an important part of the appliance’s cooking process, frequent peeking is self-defeating. Every time the oven door is opened, the temperature inside is reduced by as much as 25 degrees, forcing it to work even harder — and use more energy — to get back to the proper cooking temperature. If you need to check on a dish, use the oven window instead.
    Watch for more announcements on Facebook, followed by a One-Call Now e-mail message with event details. And don’t forget to follow FLFHC on Twitter. Visit the FLFHC website at www.ftleavenworthfamilyhousing.com for downloadable forms and other useful information.
