Utilities 

Water & Sewage:  Your water main shut off is located just outside the front door of your house, just below your mailbox in most cases. Water, sewage, trash services, & community service fees are part of your monthly VV1 homeowner’s fees which are billed by our property management company. 

Trash Services:  Trash is picked up every Tuesday and Friday. Please, no lose trash all trash must be bagged and secured against pests. Resident trash area maintenance, properly bagging trash, keeping the bin area clean, & trash cans are the responsibility of each resident.   For heavy / large items, send the property manager a Fix-IT note at least 2 days before the next trash pick-up so they can communicate your pick-up request over to the team.  Generally, only one large item per household per day. Remodeling waste must be removed by you or your contractor.

 

Electricity:  Electricity is supplied to your home by another division of CenterPoint Energy.  CenterPoint delivers the power to you, however, you may shop electric providers for the best rates.  One place to shop is with the Texas Public Utility Commission site: PowertoChoose.org.  "Smart" meters are located at the end of your building; breaker boxes & main power boxes are located on your patio, close to the gas meter. 

 

Natural Gas:  Natural Gas is provided by CenterPoint Energy.  Your home heating and possibly kitchen range, hot water heater, & dryer may use natural gas.  The main shutoff for the gas is by your gas meter & main power box in your patio area. 


Internet | Cable TV:  Two providers Comcast/Xfinity and AT&T have wiring on our property. In the case of AT&T, fiber is already wired into each unit.  Comcast has cable boxes at each building as well.  You are free to choose which provider you wish to contract with. Exterior cabling and wiring must comply with specific standards.


Telephone Service:  Your townhome is hardwired with good old fashioned SW Bell phone wiring. 


Satellite Dishes:  VV1 has specific rules about satellite dish installations.  Please familiarize yourself with these rules BEFORE you order dish service for your home.  If the satellite dish is improperly installed, it is the responsibility of the resident to have the satellite re-positioned and remedy any damages to the building fence or shed.
