    The Super Saver Program is designed to promote conservation in the home and increase awareness and understanding of the information on resident utility statements.
    Residents can nominate themselves for the Super Saver of the Month award by submitting a nomination form, which can be found on the Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities website at www.ftleavenworthfamilyhousing.com. Bring the form and a copy of the most recent utilities statement to the FLFHC office at 220 Hancock Ave. by the 21st of each month.
    Families can nominate themselves each month for this award but can only win once per calendar year. All monthly winners receive a $25 Visa gift card. Monthly winners will also be eligible for the Super Saver of the Year award.
    A profile of the winning family, including examples of the steps they have taken to conserve utilities in their home will be published in the Heritage Community Connection newsletter.
    Office closures
    The FLFHC offices will be closed Dec. 24-25 in observance of Christmas and Jan. 1 for New Year’s Day.
    In case of a maintenance emergency or wish to submit a work order, call the 24-hour maintenance line at (913) 651-3838.
    Sand instead of salt
    If freezing rain is in the forecast for the day or ice builds up, Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities asks residents to use sand or ice melt products. Using salt can damage the concrete and the flower beds around homes. Pet-safe ice melt products are available for purchase in retail stores as is regular ice melt.

    Utilities tip
    Change the furnace filter regularly. The recommended interval is once per month. Filters can be picked up at the Maintenance Department. Changing the filter before it gets dirty will reduce the work the furnace fan has to do and improve air circulation in the house.
