Outdoor Pests

The beautiful natural area surrounding our community is habitat for many animals such as snakes, skunks, armadillos, porcupines, wild hogs and other creatures. Please be careful when venturing outdoors and be aware of the possibility of their presence in the area.  Keep a close eye on your family and pets as a precaution and keep safe while enjoying the outdoors.

*All residents 12 years and older must have a current VWOA ID card to enter the pools.

Blocking the Sidewalks

Please remember to place your trash cans on the road and not on the sidewalks. The sidewalks must be clear to allow for pedestrians to safely pass. Children are back in school and when trash cans, debris, or cars are blocking the sidewalks, pedestrians have to walk out into the street. This creates an unsafe situation that can be easily avoided.

Public Safety Tip

Tips When Using an ATM (Bank) Machine

Automated banking machines are convenient and easy to use, but it is important to use caution.

  • Try to avoid using an ATM by yourself. Either take someone with you or only use an ATM when others are around.
  • If possible, avoid using an ATM after dark. If you must, choose one that is well lit and does not have tall bushes nearby.
  • When you arrive at an ATM, look around. If you see anything that makes you uncomfortable or anyone who looks suspicious, do not stop. Either use an ATM at a different location or come back later. Notify the authorities.
  • Have your access card and any other documents you need ready when you approach an ATM. While you are fumbling with a wallet or purse, you are easy game for a thief.
  • If someone else is using the ATM when you arrive, avoid standing right behind them. Give them enough space to conduct their transaction in privacy.
  • Even while using the ATM, stay alert to your surroundings. Look up and around every few seconds while transacting your business.
  • Protect your Personal Identification Number (PIN). Do not enter your PIN if anyone else can see the screen. Shield your PIN from onlookers by using your body. If you feel someone is watching your transaction closely, cancel it and do your banking another time.
  • When your transaction is finished, be sure you have your card and your receipt, then leave immediately. Avoid counting or otherwise displaying large amounts of cash.
  • As you leave, keep a look out. Be alert for anything or anyone who appears suspicious. If you think you are being followed, go to an area with a lot of people and call the police.
  • Keep your receipt and any papers bearing your name or account number with you. Do not throw them in a nearby trash can.

AT&T FIBER OPTICS INFRASTRUCTURE

Mintco, the subcontractor for AT&T will need access to certain backyards. Over the next several weeks, Mintco crews will be working in the Villages of Westcreek. The crews will need to access backyard easements so crew members will be leaving door hangers. Should you receive one, we ask that you please make arrangements or accommodations for the crew members to have access.

Once the work is complete, they will mend any damage caused to your lot during this process.

If you, the homeowner, have any questions you may call Oscar Hernandez with Mintco at 210-634-9055.
