New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 14, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Budget. Continued from page I cents and set a ceiling of 35 08 percent as the highest rate increase it would approve By state law an increase in property taxes of greater than 8 percent is subject to a rollback election whir-h if so called and successful would roll the hike back to the 8 percent figure. or 2 27 cents, and would require an adjustment of $450.OOO to the city's budget Michie said failure to receive any of the tentative revenue adjustments would result in further line item deletions He said after the meeting that further budget cuts would be difficult Council_ because. I dont have much left to cut " Combined cuts in the current year's amended budget and next fiscal years requested budget amount to some Si million as a result of revenue shortfalls A property tax rate increase of 35 percent would raise ad valorem rates from 28 cents to 38 cents per $100 evaluation Staff has figured that increase to raise rates of the owner of a residence appraised at $65,000 by about $60 annually or $5 a month New Braunfels currently has the second lowest property tax rate in Texas among cities its size Should the utilities approve the city's request of additional transfers, such would ultimately be passed on and effectively raise utility rates about 75 cents a month to the average user The city-owned utility presently pays the city $865,000 annually in intergovernmental transfers Michie added $150,000 to the requested budget to allow for a three percent employee cost of living raise. a justified expense since city employees have gone longer than a year w ithout such an adjustment and for morale. Michie said Continued from page I changes that have come about such as the restoration of our parks, the arboretum Panther Canyon Nature Trails, bank stabilization along the Comal the Hinman Island project, tuber exits, landscaping of park: Cypress Bend Improvements and the 17 acre addition to Landa Park " She also reflected on the changes at city hall ‘ I see a new focus on planning w ith the hiring of a city manager with a strong planning background. which the new council members will come to appreciate, and the elevation of the planning director to a department head level We now have a city engineer after going years without and we have hired a professionally trained and certified parks director and librarian ' She said she has also seen a tremendous regional effort made to solve the problem of overuse of the Kdward's Aquifer and urged all councilmen and citizens to become better informed and stay informed about the area's w ater supply ‘ Above all other items, this is the most important, unsolved long range problem Without a regional plan to protect the quantity and quality of the Kdward's. our beautiful springs the very lifeblood of New Braunfels, w ill cease to flow Some say it may be* too late to save the springs, but I d like to think its not.” Senior Citizens April 15-17 Wednesday Oven-fried chicken, scalloped potatoes, seasoned corn, spiced apple rings Thursday Beef enchiladas with chili, pinto beans.

Infants and Children program is a federal and state-funded program which provides about $32 monthly in free supplemental foods, as well as nutrition education and health screening to pregnant or breastfeeding women and children up to age J The county health department ha> applied to the state for fun ding of VMC here and is awaiting final confirmation from the state legislature which has provided state funds for expansion of VMC into several counties including Comal and monies have reported Iv been earmarked for the county program Comal County Commissioners last week paved the way tor VV ICN acceptance here by matching local money with state aid to pro vide health services for prenatal women and children a prere quisite to receive the federal pro gram ‘ I'm delighted said County Nur-c Mary Lou F.rben who at. tively sought establishing the pro grams locally This part tally fulfills my goals of providing health services in the county The health department should tx* -**rv mg citizens to the fullest Besides screening and testing the program provides solid nutri tion to t>ot ti prenatal women and infants which has proven to lessen mortality rates among newborns and children up to age one where the risks of perinatal death are at their highest The programs have a potential of providing health services to some 2.210 women and children in Comal, a need which ranks 78th statewide among the 254 counties That figure represents those in the county who live at or below 150 percent of pov erty guidelines, program qualification standards Though funding VMC locally w ill be approved on a year to y ear basis. Krben sees the program's continuance here because of the need The state's 69th legislature appropriated ST million in 1986 to subsidize the state s federal allot ment of $12 million, the first time state funds have been used for VMC and therefore extended to Comal County There is a big need for it here and I think people are just star ting to realize that said Krben who has been at the county department since January According to statistics compiler! by Texas Department of Health Comal ranks 78th in need based on population living at poverty levels recorded low birth weights numtier of births to teen age mothers perinatal deaths and unemployed and migrant workers tit 54 counties not receiving VV h Comal had the third highest need behind Collin and Bowie counties tit the 200 counties receiving VMI 124 of those are lifted .is having a les*-er nor-'! than Comal Also the county wa* one of IO counties with Boo births or more annually not receiving the program Once determined eligible Wit participants receive individual nutrition counseling concerning their risk condition as well a-their first monthly bx*! voucher packet tailored to alleviate nam tmnal problems Foods provided through the program include infant formula, infant and adult cereal, cheese, eggs, pure fruit juice, milk and peanut butter Among the prenatal services available will be pregnancy testing, examinations, laboratory tests and immunizations Children 3 years of age and younger will receive examinations, immuniza tions. health screenings, nutri tional counseling and assessment Krben said the success of the program will rest somewhat on area physicians for diagnosis and treatment of illnesses of pregnant women and children "The health department only promotes health We do not diagnose or treat diseases I foetors who see VMC approved participants are reim Pursed for their service through the program Xccording to area VVR' project director Sharon Porter atwut six new applicants from Comal have tw-cn seen weekly in Seguin and seeking aide through Guadalupe County s program It has been extremely difficult to turn away these pregnant women and their infants or children especially since we snow they have no ethel source of trot- or reduced fee health mt vices in their county Porter Mild adding that Comal ap pin ants have previously tx*en denied because of the absence of the program here tithe! are.i counties receiving VSR U*side*- Guadalupe art* Hays Bastrop and ‘ aldwetl I he benefits of the program are numerous said VV Ii diret tor Debra Stat*eno in Xus’m citing in creases in birth weights of infants whose mother*- were enrolled into the program tatter nu’rition in infants alter birth anti increases in immunization*- Police Reports X Killeen woman reported the theft of $22 « in assorted current, y •»< curred while she was in the em**! gen cy room at McKenna Memorial Hospital Sunday evening Some $25o change was taken iii the burglary wvi-rnight satur lay of a coin operated machine i»n spur Twenty five ca'-'-ettt tajM*--valued at $2’k| and two chis k ts*»k' were taken in the t urglary sunday ut a car parked in the urn block cd But ten up street V 22 year old New Braunfels woman reported sunday afternoon an as-ault thai occurred at Landa Park No arrests were made in con ru ction w itll the* incident An assault F relay evening an a 16-\ear old New Braunfels High school student t>y another uvelide was reverted to police L<* at ion of the incident was not disclosed in judice reports and there wen- no at rests An employee* of Mission Valley Mills left walk saturday afternoon only to discover the* the*ft of his 1978 b ord pickup while* pal ken! on Porter street near the* md!
