members offer views on bond issue ByDANAOVERSTREET Staff writer Its almost time for the citizens of New Braunfels to cast their votes in the citys first bond issue election since Heres how the members of City Council feel about Saturdays million bond issue election George Erben Im certainly for the total bond I think there is a definite need in some areas and obviously there are some areas I feel more strongly about than Streets there is a definite need there and in the I would rather pay higher prices and have the fire protection and have a low key I think that periodic bond issues would be a good idea since it doesnt get so far out of hand especially since this is the last year for revenue Valdcmar Espinoza I think we should go through with it and hope everybody votes for it and it will

Drainage is important we definitely need some drainage im provements on the west There are some areas that are pretty doggone If we dont pass this bond issue this next year for the same items is going to cost a lot James Goodbread 1 feel the bond issue is very Our town has gone since 1968 with no capital improvements and no bond issue and the financial situation is sound enough to handle a bond issue with no Some items are a little more necessary than like streets and Whenever you start getting water in peoples houses you have a drainage Pool cover and golf course will pay for Theres no way you can make a street pay for but any place thats we should have a user Its viable to have periodic bond but to make that we need this bond issue to play The past city councils have not owned up and accepted their responsibility and dropped this in councils lap and we accepted he would hate to see us wait another 15 years this same bond issue 10 years ago would have been Unfortunately the county is having a large tax increase and we recently OKd a bond issue for but people dont realize the smallest tax they pay is for the city they the one thats responsible for all the Betty Lou Rushing

problems now it will save our quality of We are a conservative council and weve demonstrated that by fighting for and granting the homestead We have the lowest tax rate in cities our size and weve been able to tmaintain that tax We are very conservative with the tax but we must look to the It has been my contention that we must institute a program of user fees wherein we can guarantee to the taxpayers that adult users will pay for the privelege of using our rather than expecting the taxpayer to subsidize and this will Ed Sciantarelli I think the voters in New Braunfels are very intelligent people and look forward to them making educated decisions about the I think certain areas that need to be addressed are being addressed in bond issues are viable people are much less
