Homes and property are maintained
 by our  service staff.

 

 

   Leisure Village West is maintained by a staff of more than 70 full time employees and managers.

The property,  facilities, and individual residences are maintained daily by our staff. 

 Normal hours of operation are 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
 Emergency services after hours are just a phone call away.

 The primary work force services are for Home and appliance repairs and maintaining the private and common Grounds  

In addition to the maintenance departments we also  have many other services (see Other Services) such as bus transportation to and from the malls, Post Offices, libraries  and grocery stores.
