  • Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
    Many residents move in and out this time of year. To make the transition as simple and stress- free as possible, Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities reminds residents of the procedures required to successfully clear a home.
    The first step for residents planning to vacate a home is to stop by the FLFHC office at 220 Hancock Ave. and fill out a “30-Day Notice to Vacate” form and schedule pre-inspection and final inspection appointments.
    Residents receive a move-out information sheet, which includes a move-out checklist that details what is expected at the final inspection, a schedule of charges and a guide for potential expenses associated with any item that may need to be repaired or replaced.
    Once the form is completed and submitted to the FLFHC office with a copy of military orders, a pre-inspection will be scheduled. The pre-inspection gives inspectors a chance to assess the home for any items that need to be taken care of before the final inspection. It also gives maintenance staff insight into any items that may need to be attended to before new residents can move in.
    On the day of the final move-out inspection, a housing inspector will document the condition of the home and account for all items that belong to the home, such as keys, garage openers, carbon monoxide detectors and appliances. If damages exist beyond normal wear and tear, residents may be assessed a damage charge at this time. Be sure that all cleaning responsibilities detailed on the move-out checklist have been completed or charges may be assessed for any move-out cleaning not performed.
    Trash and recycle containers should be empty, clean and stored next to the home. Grass in fenced-in areas should be mowed and all pet waste removed.
    For more information about the move-out procedures, see the FLFHC Resident Guideline and Community Handbook or visit the FLFHC office at 220 Hancock Ave.
    Village of the Month
    Starting in June, housing village mayors will have the opportunity to leave their mark and help promote their villages to greatness.
    One of those ways is by encouraging residents to keep lawns and common areas clean and orderly. Photos of villages’ progress can be e-mailed to fhc@tmo.com and shared on FLFHC’s Facebook page. The village with the most improvement each month will have the opportunity to win $50 cash to use toward village activities in addition to the $200 village funds already provided each year. There is no limit to how many times a village can win.
    Holiday closure
    FLFHC offices and the Self-Help Store will be closed May 27 in observance of Memorial Day. Normal business hours will resume May 28. To report a maintenance emergency or submit a work order when the offices are closed, call the 24-hour maintenance line at (913) 651-3838.

    Use green products such as energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs. While these bulbs cost more than the typical incandescent bulb, they can last up to 10 times longer and only use one-third or less the energy as incandescent bulbs.
    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.
