Median Makeovers Planned in Allen
Posted on Dec 27, 2016 Comments (0)
Eight Allen medians will receive lighting, landscape, or irrigation improvements starting in 2017.
The City will use fees collected from developers to begin designing the enhanced medians. Some will be outfitted with street lights; others will receive landscaping and irrigation. A few will receive all three.
Locations include Junction Drive, Raintree Circle, Bossy Boots Drive, Allen Heights Drive, Montgomery Boulevard, Chaparral Road, Ridgeview Drive and Country Brook Lane. View map.
This is one of the first projects to take advantage of bond funding approved by voters in 2016 to cover numerous new facilities and infrastructure improvements in Allen. Construction and installation is expected to cost $3.4 million.

DRYER MAINTENANCE
Posted on Dec 22, 2016 Comments (0)
What:
Dryers require regular simple maintenance to keep working safely & efficiently.

 
Why:
To avoid potential fire hazards and having to do costly repairs to your appliances.

 
How:
It goes without saying that you should clean your lint screen after every load of laundry. Keeping the filter clear will shorten the drying cycle, save you money, and prevent any potential fire hazards. It is also a good practice to regularly, but at least twice a year, remove the lint that accumulates at the bottom of the housing that holds your lint screen. You can generally use a vacuum cleaner's flat attachment to reach down in the housing to suck out anything that has accumulated in there. Finally, you should be cleaning out your dryer's exhaust duct using a dryer duct cleaning brush (it's a stiff bristled circular brush with a flexible handle that you can buy at most hardware stores) at least twice a year. The exhaust duct vents your dryers exhaust to the outside of your house and can become a fire hazard if not kept clear. Consider doing this more often (say monthly) if you do heavy amounts of laundry on a consistent basis. Many service providers sell regular service plans to handle this for you, so consider signing up for one.

REFRIGERATOR MAINTENANCE
Posted on Dec 22, 2016 Comments (0)
What:
Most refrigerators require simple maintenance you can do yourself.

 
Why:
It will keep your fridge running like new and can greatly extend the life & efficiency of your unit.

 
How:
Here are a few easy things you can do every year. - Clean your cooling coils by vacuuming or dusting them. This will most likely require you to remove a grill grate or cover. Refer to your user manual if you need help finding them. - Replace or clean the water filter if your fridge has an automatic ice maker or water dispenser. Refer to your owners manual for the proper procedure as their location can vary. - Clean door gaskets with a wet cloth to make sure that the refrigerator is sealing properly. A solid seal will save you money and protect your food from spoilage.
 
WHOM TO CONTACT FOR LIGHTS OUT
Posted on Jan 17, 2011 Comments (0)
If you find that a streetlight in StarCreek doesn't come on when it gets dark, contact the City of Allen at LightOut@cityofallen.org. Describe the problem and the location of the streetlight. Keep in mind that streetlights that stay on during the day should also be reported because of unnecessary energy consumption. In either case, the city will route the request to a contractor who replaces the bulbs or makes a repair. A response takes about one week after notification. You can also call the City of Allen, 214-509-4576.
 
If streetlight fixture is broken or the spotlights on neighborhood entry signs are out, contact StarCreek property manager Dustin Robinson at drobinson@cmamanagement.com.
