status as first in the nation was being en dangered by Vermont and The proposed California Democratic primary part of a complex fight over the state reapportionment and 1984 politics could be earlier than any other presidential primary since 1912 when the practice Such an early which would probably be designed to select about a third of the states 345 could put the partys entire structure of rules

Utilities board sinks Landa parking lot proposal The proposed parking lottennis facility switch along Fredericksburg Road was ap parently a good idea that turned City Manager Delashmutt received formal notification from Utilities Manager Bob Sohn last informing him of the Utilities Board of Trustees tabling permission to build the tennis The letter said trustees had approved a parking lot on property leased from the Lower Colorado River but not tennis and volleyball Parks Director Court Thieleman said Monday Among reasons given for their action were future renovation of a well at the base of Fredericksburg security of the rest of the LCRA and the location of overhead transmission Satans letter suggested the city select another site for tennis Thieleman In that he shared with the parks board an Were looking at moving the two volleyball courts near the existing tennis courts to Haymarket where the rest of the volleyball courts are Than maybe we build two more tennis courts where we removed the volleyball and renovate the existing tennis courts at the same But this is all still in the talking because we dont know if theres enough room to build two more tennis or even if the Tennis Association has gotten any closer to securing the necessary Thieleman The proposed switch struck the heartstrings of the parks board back in The parks department was in the mids f a capital improvement project to a square foot parking lot along Fr Road near the H Street and the council had approved the project with 75 percent of the work being done inho Then Delashir pproached nvueleman with the idea making the proposed Fredericksburg par lot into tennis and volleyball and making the existing facilities on Elizabeth Street into more parking The parks board hugged the and sent it to City where approval was But it appeared from Sohns letter and from parks board discussion Monday thats where the lines of communication cut Back when we were presented the switch didnt I ask if Utilities said it was okay parks board member Bob Hamil The item was placed on our agenda by someone and we assumed that whatever was needed to be done had board chairperson Sharon Phair I when the switch suggestion was it didnt seem like it was my responsibilty to go to the utility manager and ask if it was Parks roundup Hamil asked Thieleman to check into the UtiUtiesLCRA lease for the property in Id like to know if theres a conflict in the lease that would prohibit the and if why not okay it Hamil the director will continue to pursue an appro d parking lot where green space is now the existing volleyball courts and the Elizabeth Street That so remains Thieleman Itll look a lot like the Utilities parking The turfstone idea didnt pan out because were going to have to crown the lot for proper Well go out for bids on the parking well do the landscaping and Thieleman The bid notice will probably be in the newspaper this to be opened on July and hopefully we can have it com

fees should be charged for their details on the fee possible restrictions on what time of the day a wedding can take place in the gazebo and how traffic should be properly handled will be hashed out at the boards next Reserved use of the gazebo accounts for 8 percent of the but Thieleman Its not how often its but the problems we have when it is Those problems are accented by the curbed circular which gives the illusion of being narrower than it really We put up a sign restricting big vehicles from going down because it was being used as a tur Theyd get down there and nut be able to make the
