Staff writer National Weather Service officials say chances are excellent that the new radar station serving south central Texas will be moved from Hondo to Canyon At a meeting of the Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce Thursday two spoksmen for the weather service told lake area business men that preliminary indications show that Startzville is the best place for the radar The two weathermen said a decision about the location would be made this fall but it might be three before the station is in After the site is land will be leased and facilities will have to be Camp north of San is also being but NWS area manager Bill Crouch said he thinks the radar station will be moved to Comal You may be pretty far up on the priority Crouch since there are so many military bases in San The location being considered is adjacent to the microwave tower on FM southwest of Canyon Crouch said that is the highest spot in Comal The new radar station will serve both the Austin and San Antonio as well as military bases in both Major con siderations for locating the weather station are lack of tall buildings or electrical interference and access to electricity and Larry supervising forecaster at the NWS forecast office in San was also present at Thursdays meeting to answer He told chamber members there was nothing they could do to assure that the station would be built at Canyon It will be a meteorological he but I feel pretty sure the hill in Startzville is where it will The along with the Federal Aviation Agency and the United States Air are updating weather forecasting facilities all over the United States and the present station at Hondo will be technologically obsolete when the new system is in It is not a good location to service Crouch People in Hondo arent happy that the radar has to be he Crouch said the people in Hondo consider the station good advertising for their Stanford Research Institute is advising the NWS on preliminary location recommendation for the and some sites such as Galveston and Corpus Christi are Crouch He expects other stations in Texas to be located in San Angelo and somewhere in the DallasFort Worth Just because the weather radar station may end up in Comal County doesnt necessarily mean the weather forecasting sttaion will be moved All you may get out of it is a piece See Page 12A Commissioners hear report on almostfinished county

anxious to help on The coordination of the which the commissioners will open bids on next was of some Talbott offered to have a room cleaned up to store the fur but Clark The furniture will probably come in about the time you will be ready for Commissioners asked the architect to look again at the cost of putting in the wash rack and gasoline Tell you We could waive all the late fees in exchange for the wash rack and gasoline Clark We might be able to do it very Since the jail was supposed to be completed by even after rain days and change order days were the contractor might have to pay some penalty which in most contracts amount to a I dont believe the commissioners should charge any penalty Buddy onsite inspector for architect Chris DiStephano said in a telephone We specialize in building jails and I have been involved in 13 jail building projects and in almost every case you get behind schedule because there are only three to four manufacturers of jail equipment in the whole
