Military Saves Week begins February 27! Saving your hard-earned money year-round is a great way to ensure your family’s financial preparedness. Take this week to review your saving plans. Set your goals, even small ones, and start saving now. For more information, please visit militarysaves.org to review savings tips, tools, resources, and strategies.
It is important to recognize that, despite your savings plans, there may still be financial emergencies that cost more than your nest egg can cover. If you are ever in an unexpected financial emergency, the ACS Army Emergency Relief can help. You can receive assistance with living expenses, emergency travel, vehicle expenses, funeral expenses, and other emergencies. For more information visit ACS, Financial Readiness office.

Heating your home accounts for about 66 percent of your monthly energy consumption during winter months. Making some small changes around the house can help you lower your energy consumption and save you money through the Live Army Green Program.
Under the program, occupied homes that are the same, or similar, are grouped together and the utilities are averaged to determine a baseline. The baseline is averaged monthly so current conditions are automatically factored in.
Once the baseline is established, a buffer zone is added above and below the average. When a resident's use falls within the buffer zone, the resident will receive a "no action required" statement, but when a family uses less than the baseline and buffer zone they receive a rebate.
Families consuming above the buffer zone will receive a "balance due" notice on their statement, meaning a payment is due.
If you regularly receive a “balance due” statement here are some tips to reduce your energy consumption while staying warm:
Wear slippers. Warm air rises so your feet on the floor often get cold. Wearing a pair of cozy slippers can keep your feet toasty and help you feel warmer. Sweaters, cardigans and sweatshirts can help you stay comfortable while keeping your thermostat set lower. Regularly changing your air filter reduces stress on your HVAC system. Filters are available at your community office for no charge. A slow cooker is an efficient way to make a hearty meal on a cold day. If you have any questions about the Live Army Green Program contact your community office.
Join ACS on Friday, February 10 from 5:30 – 8 pm at Corvias Bldg 2908 for a Newly Wed and Not So Newly Wed Game. Couples are invited to attend the ACS Newly Wed and NOT so Newly Wed Game event. Come join us for a night of fun and laughter. For more information click here.
Keeping your community looking great is a team effort and we want our residents to take pride in their community by maintaining a clean curb appeal. It may not be your trash on the ground but picking it up and disposing of it properly helps keep your community looking great.
Rubbish, refuse, and recycling days are offered once a week for all of our communities. If you are unsure of your trash day please contact your community center or visit your community calendar. Remember to bring out your trash cans and recycling bins from your home for curbside pick-up by 6 am.
Do not leave trash cans and recycling bins on streets and sidewalks. Help us to maintain the curb appeal of our communities and also ensure that pedestrians are able to utilize the sidewalks at all times. Also, keep in mind that cluttered carports and storing items on the side of the home is a breathing ground for pests. Toys and grills should be neatly stored at the rear of the home. Also, parking on the grounds or grass is prohibited.
Boats, trailers and RVs are not allowed to be parked in the driveway, street or side of the home. For a small fee you can store your property at the installation RV storage lot which is a fenced in secure location.
Let's work together to keep our community looking attractive.
Water Conservation: When washing your hands, turn the water off while lathering. See more tips here.
Your community calendar can help you stay up-to-date on trash, recycling, lawn care, resident events and community activities.
You can even sync your community calendar with a personal Google calendar by clicking on the +Google button on the bottom right-hand corner of the calendar.
