Newsletter

KLH Housing Corp. Newsletter - May 2017

Kawartha Lakes Haliburton Housing Corporation has a new logo and tag line

KLH Housing Corp. logo

Make the right move

Make the right move

Did you ever find saying KLHHC a bit of a tongue twister? Well so did we. We will now be known as KLH Housing Corp. By making this change we have better identified the company's operation with a clear statement of 'housing'. We have also created a new logo and tag line.

The butterfly icon conveys the key components of KLH Housing Corp.

  • Security through structure
  • Care through softness
  • Potential through imagery
  • Dignity through colour and symmetry

Butterfly icon from KLH Housing Corp. logo

We chose the butterfly as the icon for its resilience, symmetry, approachability and comfort which became an enclosure intertwining to form a home. The two wings of the butterfly, the tenant and the landlord, come together to form the central home element.

KLH Housing Corp. has already begun sending out correspondence with the new logo and tag line--Make the Right Move but our values and commitment remain the same: Our foremost commitment is to our tenants, to whom we will provide good quality affordable housing. In doing so, we will recognize and respect the diversity of our communities and the people we serve.

We will treat our tenants with dignity and respect, and will provide timely and effective responses to their concerns. We will provide opportunities for our tenants to express concerns and make recommendations for improvement of our facilities and services. We will strive to understand the socio-demographic profile of our tenant population, understand their needs in a holistic sense, and assist them in achieving their goals.

Here we grow again

Parkside senior's housing unit in Minden

At the end of April, Tenants moved into the new Parkside site in Minden. This is an Affordable Housing 12 unit Seniors building.

Drawing plans for 5 Bond Street

The above drawing shows plans for a 12 unit family TownHouse site at 5 Bond Street Lindsay to open in 2018.

We have also begun work on a 16 Unit addition to 48 St. Paul Street Lindsay. The addition will include 8 one bedroom units and 8 two bedroom units. Again we hope that Tenants will be able to call this home in 2018.

Friendly reminders

How to contact housing

Please call 705-324-6401 for maintenance issues and concerns. During normal business hours, you would press '1' and you will be connected with one of our Customer Relations Reps. For Emergencies only after hours, press '5' to be transferred to the After Hours Emergencies line to speak with the "on call" staff.

Please do not email or text staff for maintenance or concerns because your request may remain on their computer for some time if they are at meetings or on vacation. Calling in your concern or maintenance issue will ensure that your request is immediately put into the system and assigned to the appropriate staff. Maintenance requests can take 3-5 days.

Tenant Insurance

HSC tenant insurance logo

Maintenance matters

Did you know?

High levels of Moisture and Condensation can cause major damage to your home, especially true in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms. Severe water damage can be very costly and can be avoided.

When having a shower or a bath please ensure that the shower curtain is fully closed so that all water is fully contained to the bathtub. If water does somehow manage to escape onto the floor, please wipe up immediately.

To avoid moisture build up in your bathroom or kitchen use the exhaust fans which draws moist air or shower/bath steam to the outside of the home.

A regular visual check of all taps and water lines and drains will ensure that you catch any problems and will also help to prevent the possible growth of mildew.

Toilet overflows

If you flush your toilet and it appears to be plugged, first turn off the water shut off valve at the back of the toilet. Do not flush the toilet again until this valve is turned off as it may overflow.

Use a plunger to plunge your toilet to unclog it. Once the water in the bowl is almost gone, then turn the valve back on and flush the toilet. Remember to only flush once then turn the water back off and repeat plunging. Wait until the water is almost gone, turn the water back on and repeat.

Fruit flies

Fruit flies breed extremely fast and within 60 hours, the females are able to hatch, begin the mating process and lay hundreds of eggs. This then will become a very irritating infestation.

In order to eliminate a fruit fly infestation it is important to keep all fruit in the fridge (fruit flies like to lay their eggs in and on fruit). Leaving old food around for an extended period of time attracts fruit flies and other harmful bacteria. The best way to get rid of these pests in your shower is to pour bleach down the drain. The bleach will not only kill any lingering fruit flies and their larva but it will also kill any bacteria. Also important is to ensure wet clothes and towels get dried as quickly as possible. Wet and damp clothes will develop bacteria and this bacteria will attract fruit flies.

Solution to kill fruit flies:

Place about 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar in the bottom of a mug or glass. Place plastic wrap tightly over the top of the glass or mug. Poke small holes in the top of the wrap using a tooth pick. Place this on the counter for about 1 to 2 weeks.

Tenants at 71 Melbourne Street had two raised garden beds installed. We can't wait to see all the wonderful things that will be grown here this year.

Pet corner

Sign saying all pets must be on a leash and please clean up after your pet

Many KLH Housing Corp. Tenants enjoy the companionship of a pet. With pet ownership come many responsibilities. As outlined in By-Law 2012-209, every owner and other person who is in charge of a dog must pick-up and dispose of any excrement left by the pet. The by-law also advises that no owner shall cause or permit their dog to run at large. Failure to comply could result in fines of up to $500.00 and/or other legal action by the Municipality for repeat offences. Any tenant can contact the Municipal Law Enforcement Office at 705-324-9411 extension 1212. After hours contact number: 705-928-3054. If you call by-law with a concern, please also call KLH Housing Corporation so we can document the incident and take appropriate action as the Landlord. The KLH Housing Corporation Lease also limits the number of pets to a maximum of 2 pets plus 2 caged animals. All pets must be on a leash when outside the units. Please note that this includes cats.

Energy saving tips for Spring

1. Service your air conditioner

Energy conservation graphic

Replacing or cleaning the air filters can lower your cooling system's energy consumption by up to 15 percent and clean your air conditioner's evaporator coil annually.

2. Open windows

Opening windows creates a cross-wise breeze, allowing you to naturally cool your space. This is an ideal tactic in spring and fall when temperatures are mild. But in the summer, it is best to open at night and close in the day.

3. Install window treatments

Energy efficient window treatments or coverings such as blinds can slash heat gain when temperatures rise. These devices not only improve the look of your home but also reduce energy costs.

4. Bring in the sunlight

During daylight hours, switch off artificial lights and use windows and skylights to brighten your space.

5. Switch on bathroom fan

Bathroom fans suck out heat and humidity, improving comfort.
