Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities removes snow and ice from road starts and stops, hills, school sidewalks and crosswalks, public sidewalks, roads and parking lots in residential areas when there are two or more inches of snowfall. 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.
Stop by the Frontier Heritage Communities parking lot, 220 Hancock Ave., between 3:30-5:30 p.m. Oct. 30 to receive a free glow-in-the-dark treat bag and glow stick, while supplies last.
Fall yard maintenance
Barren Outdoor Solutions is performing bi-weekly yard maintenance.
Residents are asked to put away all toys, garden hoses, patio furniture and any other belongings before the scheduled mowing day. FLFHC will not be responsible for damages or failure to mow areas where items are left out. Residents are responsible for mowing, trimming and edging within their fenced areas.
Lawn clippings and leaves can be bagged and left on the curb for pick up on scheduled maintenance days. Barren will also be scheduling shrub and bush trimming.
Yard maintenance is subject to change as needed; in case of inclement weather, work will be completed the following day.
The FLFHC offices and the Self-Help Store will be closed Nov. 11 in observance of Veterans Day. Friday trash collection will move to Nov. 14. 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.
The City Union Mission Christian Life Center truck is now parked across from the Community Management Office weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. where residents can drop off items or arrange curbside pick-up.
The second Saturday of each month, place items for donation curbside before 10 a.m. for collection between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. The mission will issue a tax voucher for accepted donations. The next mission pick-up is Nov. 14.
The mission accepts clothing, furniture and other household items, but not appliances, mattresses, cribs or carseats. Separate any bulk trash from donations and place clothing and shoes inside plastic bags marked for mission donation.
Anything left on the curb Monday will be collected as bulk trash and not a donation.
For more information, call the Community Management Office at (913) 682-6300.
Plan your 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.
