Water Meter - Be Prepared

When not using your home for an extended period it is prudent to turn off the water to the home to prevent possible damage in case of a leak or burst pipe.  Owners are charged for any water that runs through a water meter, even if there is a leak.
To prepare for a tropical storm or hurricane please turn your water off at the meter.   In a storm situation where water is left on, the owner would be charged for the water. If there are multiple homes with leaks due to damage, there could be low or no water pressure for all homes.
Also in case of a storm please secure your garbage can and other loose object around your home.

When work is completed, a certificate is required by the insurance company if you want windstorm insurance.  A contractor must be registered with the City.
Any replacement of doors or windows must comply with windstorm insurance codes and to be windstorm impact resistant.
Contact 797-3600 for any information on construction, permits, regulations, etc.  If any home has been "Red Tagged" and the homeowner is not certain of the reason, contact: 797-3600 for information. The "red Tag" has the name of the inspector who issued it.
This is only general information about repairs after storm damage, not a complete guide.  Owners are responsible for contacting city, insurance, etc. to obtain the latest repair information.
 

Over 95% of the lots in Terramar Beach are privately owned.  At any given time a number of houses and vacant lots are for sale through local real estate agents.   Those considering buying or building on the beach front areas should also become familiar with the Texas Open Beaches Act and understand how it affects beach front properties.

If you have any construction materials at all in your garbage can the entire can will be bypassed.  In addition, no construction materials will be picked up if they are stacked next to your can.  Each resident must haul off any scrap building materials to a dump.  Please clean and remove any lumber/building materials, etc. that has been placed on or near your property.  Let’s all help keep things nice.

The garbage men will not pick up yard debris such as limbs or palm leaves on vacant lots.  We are having a problem with residents taking this sort of debris and putting it on the vacant lots across the street or next door to them.  It sits there forever and eventually has to be removed by someone before the vacant lot can be mowed.
