HOUSING BILL BAMANN, 315-772-7256 • SPRING THAW FLOODING: This year’s heavy snowfall has the potential to cause localized flooding. If you live in flood prone areas off-post near a river, creek, or stream, beware and be ready to take precautions to protect your belongings. Off post homeowners and renters beware of the spring thaw and potential for basement and crawl space flooding. Check your sump pump and drainage systems to be sure they are operating properly. See our flier on sump pumps in your CLIF Program and Service Advertisments . • SUMMER PCS MOVES AND HOUSING: Start planning now for summer PCS moves. As of 1 January 2014, AHRN.com is no longer the official DoD website for Soldiers to find Army approved rental listings. You must contact the local Housing office at your next installation for availability of approved rentals until a new .mil website is activated for Soldiers later in 2014 to replace AHRN. If you do use another source for rental information, be sure to check with the local housing office at your next installation to be sure it’s an approved rental before entering into any agreement. Also, New York State law requires military renters to notify their landlord at least 30 days in advance before the next rent payment is due in order to break a lease under the military clause. • COMMUNITY HOUSING OFFICE CAN HELP: Never enter into a lease without checking first with the Army Community Housing Office to see if the rental you are contemplating has been inspected by us for basic safety and habitability issues. Always get your lease reviewed by Legal Assistance or the Army Community Housing Office prior to signing to be sure all your rights are safeguarded. The Army Community Housing Office at Clark Hall (Rm A2-54) is always available to assist Soldiers with any off-post housing issues, from finding the right housing to resolving landlord-tenanct disputes. Stop in or call 772-6883/772-9397 to speak to a counselor. NEED ADDITIONAL INFORMATION?
