Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities uses a mass e-mail notification system as a method of keeping residents updated with various information ranging from power outages and policy-related issues to monthly newsletters and upcoming community events. Other urgent information can also be sent via e-mail to reach residents as quickly and efficiently as possible.
E-mail addresses for the mass e-mail system are obtained when residents sign their lease. To add or change an e-mail address, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Community Management office at (913) 682-6300.
Residents are reminded to remove all holiday decorations by Jan. 9.
Barren Outdoor Solutions will be picking up live Christmas trees daily through Jan. 10. Residents need to place trees on the curb without lights or ornaments. Artificial trees will not be picked up.
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 and regular ice melt are available for purchase in retail stores.
The FLFHC offices, including the Self-Help Store, will be closed Jan. 20 in observance of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday. Normal business hours will resume Jan. 21. Residents who have a maintenance emergency or wish to submit a work order when the offices are closed can call the 24-hour maintenance line at (913) 651-3838.

When using the oven, it’s tempting to open the door to check on a dish’s progress. But because the hot air that is contained in the oven is an important part of the appliance’s cooking process, frequent peeking is self-defeating. Every time the oven door is opened, the temperature inside is reduced by as much as 25 degrees, forcing it to work even harder — and use more energy — to get back to the proper cooking temperature. If you need to check on a dish, use the oven window instead.
