  • Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
    Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities removes snow and ice from starts, stops, hills, school sidewalks and crosswalks, public sidewalks, roads and parking lots in residential areas only if there are two or more inches. Residents are responsible for the removal of snow and ice between any common sidewalk or road and the front or back door and driveways.
    During a snowstorm or unsafe weather conditions, snow and ice removal will be delayed until weather conditions ease and return to a safe status.
    Residents are asked not to use salt products to de-ice around their homes because it can damage the concrete.
    For more information about snow and ice removal, see the Resident Guidelines and Community Handbook or call (913) 682-6300.

    Utilities tip
    Plan lighting. Not every room needs the same amount of general light. A good lighting plan can reduce lighting costs and still provide all the light needed.
    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.
