    Summer in Kansas is hot and humid, so don’t forget to care for pets.
    FLFHC encourages residents to be a responsible pet owners by keeping pets safe during these hot summer months.
    The privilege of keeping a pet can be revoked and/or a letter of caution issued if the Frontier Heritage Communities pet policy is not followed. Here are some helpful reminders about keeping a pet on post.
    The pet policy can be found in the “Resident Guidelines and Community Handbook,” section 7.20.
    Pet owners are required to provide their pets with suitable shelter from inclement weather and access to food and water. Inclement weather is defined as excessive wind, rain, snow and temperatures above 80 degrees Fahrenheit or below 50 degrees.
    Resident portal
    FLFHC’s new Active Building resident portal at https://frontierheritagecommunities.activebuilding.com offers a way to submit routine maintenance work orders, track the status of service orders, receive community updates and announcements, and join groups with other FLFHC residents.
    Residents can register at frontierheritagecommunities.activebuilding.com or call the Community Management Office at (913) 682-6300.
    When residents submit routine work orders through the new resident portal, a customer service representative will call the resident the following business day to schedule an appointment. Residents are asked to leave a good daytime contact number.
    For emergency and urgent issues that arise, residents should immediately call the FLFHC Maintenance Office at (913) 682-6300 — even on holidays and weekends.
    Back-to-school contest
    Stop by the office at 220 Hancock Ave. to enter for a chance to win a back-to-school backpack filled with goodies. All entries must be received by Aug. 2. Two winners will be drawn.
    Yard of the Month
    FLFHC representatives will patrol villages each month through October in search of three yards that will be named “Yard of the Month” during the third week of each month. Winners will receive a $25 gift card and a Yard of the Month certificate as well as recognition in the FLFHC newsletter and on Facebook. Winners are chosen based on the use of color, ornaments and plants in their front yard and porch.
    Village of the Month
    Housing village mayors now have the opportunity to leave their mark and help promote their village to greatness.
    One of those ways is by encouraging residents to keep lawns and common areas clean and orderly. Photos of a village’s 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.
