added thai the high ecal col iform content later in the week was only a fraction of what it had been follow ing the weekend The causative factor is somewhat speculation but we liiise seen this before

Bulverde Community Center Both meetings are scheduled to begin at 7 p in If Mondays meeting is any it appears passage ol the proposed district is anything but guaranteed Several of those attending Mondays meeting said they still have reservations about creating a district that would levy user sales taxes on rentals of wateroriented services to pay for various improvements and maintenance operations In fact several persons who reside or own businesses within the districts boundaries were concerned that voters in New Braunfels alone could approve creation of the district while escaping

proper was not included in the which encompasses approximately half of the That would be an unnecessary explained Commissioner Clyde Jacobs about the exclusion of New Braunfels from the He pointed out that outfitters not located inside the district but who shuttle patrons to and from would pay egress and ingress Once outside the you dont see the We want to address problems created in the The legislature gave us i regulatory authority for unin corporated areas said Jacobs As authorized in House Bill written exclusively for Comal creation of the district as called for by county commissioners requires majority approval from voters Both New Braunfels and Canyon Lakes Chamber of Commerces have joined forces in sup port of formation of the district II a governing board would be formed that would establish user lees and disbursement of monies for road litter increased law en forcement and emergency services and essentially shift the financial burden of those costs from county taxpayers to the recreational user Creation of the district will not reduce ad valorem rates per se in the but would become a selfsustaining entity that would reduce the dependence on property tax dollars and minimize future ad valorem rate See Page2A For building height Sixmember panel would control land use around airport I Appropriate control of building height adjacent to New braunfels
