New Braunfels citizens will get a Jan. 13 public hearing to give city officials their ideas on what should be in the annual budget. In previous years, a public hearing was scheduled only after a proposed budget came before the council, Finance Director Richard Burdine said Wednesday. “The City Charier requires a public hearing on the budget, but it’s really at the end of the whole process," Burdine said. “At that point, it's somewhat difficult to make some substantial changes without rewriting the whole document. ‘To make it a more flexible and responsive budget — responsible to the needs of the community — we want to get their input before we start putting it together," he said. The Jan. 13 hearing will kick off the budget process, which will reach a close on April 13 with another public hearing on a proposed budget. Interim City Manager Hector Tamayo urged citizens to take advantage of the budget hearings. “It's something that will affect all the services that the city can provide," he said. “It will affect each and every one of the citizens of the city, so they need to have some input into where their tax dollars will be spent." Burdine said the Jan. 13 hearing is the citizens' best opportunity toFamily donates use of pond for test By LARRY ROWE Staff Writer A rural family on ,a small plot of land in western Comal County have agreed to donate the use of their pond to a county project that may save volunteer firefighters valuable time when fighting rural blazes. With the approval of the Comal County Commissioners, a type of fire hydrant known as a “dry hydrant” will be set into the pond on a trial basis, with expectations that these simply designed pipes can be installed later at other rural sites. “In case of a fire, it would speed up the water availability where they wouldn’t have to go so far," said Stanley Hons, owner of the property off Texas 46. 1 2 3 I 5 6 7 I 9 10 11 12 13 14 I 15 I 16 17 I 18 I 19 20 ■ 22 23 24 ■ 26 27 28 ■ 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 43 44 ■■45 ■ 46 48 kl 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 ■ L I 58 ■ 59 60 ■ 62 I 63 I 64 65 I 66 I 67 ill Paradise PO-13 Mon. thru Pit. 6:00 7:10 9:20 Bat.

A dry hydrant is a polyvinyl chloride pipe set near the bottom of a pond or creek. In rural areas, volunteer firefighters often must drive far distances to a water source for a tank refill.Tapping a pond or creek near the site of a rural fire can therefore save valuable time. “The main purpose of this field trial in this area is to demonstrate the use and the installation of a dry hydrant,” said Carl Englerth, district conservationist for the federal Soil Conservation Service. “It’s going to be located in the outer area of the Bulverde Fire Department and could possibly be used by other fire departments in the area. But he said state regulations must be amended before they can actually draw water from the trial hydrant, or any dry hydrant at a pond or stream. Until then, they will simply demonstrate its installation and show firefighters how to hook it up to a fire truck. Texas Water Commission rules limit the use of any private pond or public stream to livestock and domestic purposes, Englerth said. Within the next two years, these regulations may be amended to include emergency water use, he said. Hons, a church maintenance worker, said the county will set the dry hydrant only three feet below the water’s surface so that the pond cannot be pumped dry. He said his eight cows and 28 goats depend on the pond for water. “We decided if it was going ;to help a burning house, we would jet them use our water,” added his wife, Bernice Hons. “We worked with Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Hons and they graciously conceded to cooperate with us on this field trial and demonstration, and to allow us to put this dry hydrant device into their pond,” Englerth said. He added that he is currently working with the Spring Branch and Canyon Lake volunteer fire departments to find possible dry hydrant locations in their areas. Meetings set tone for possible bond election By LARRY ROWE Staff Writer Several citizens of District 4 called for road repairs, a visitors’ tax and traffic-control measures at the last in a series of district town meetings on a possible bond issue. One burning topic of the discussion, which frequently strayed from the subject of capital improvements, was whether a bond issue should take place at all. “I don’t see that people are coming up with enough improvements that need to be on a bond issue,” said Bob Flume Of River Acre Drive, who added that preventive maintenance may be a better solution to such problems as road damage. Council Member Paul Fraser, who presided over the meeting as the district’s representative, told the citizens that one of the purposes for the meetings was to get citizen input on whether there should be a bond issue. “I’m not promoting the bond issue,” but only getting citizens’ thoughts on the matter, he said. Many of the citizens called for road repairs, especially on Torrey and 11 cart Attack. Fight it with a Memorial gift to the American Heart Association have their say. ‘This is the most appropriate time for them to comment on the quality of service that they receive for the tax dollars and fees that they pay.” The complete draft of the proposed budget is scheduled for completion on March I, and this will be presented lo the City Council in a budget presentation workshop on March 18. On April 27, the council is scheduled to consider adoption of budget appropriations and tax levy ordinances.

One citizen was applauded when he suggested that visitors pay a special tax at hotels and other businesses to help pay for some of the problems they help to create. After Finance Director Richard Burdine presented Mayor Clinton Brandt with a tiny birthday cake to represent the city staff’s frugal spending, the discussion took an unexpected turn toward controversies over recent City Council expenditures. Carl Fox of River Acres Drive and several other citizens blasted the City Council for giving former City Manager Paul (JRO    T)(^) 629-3311 GT rrATxoi? Closed Sunday Fri. Radio Party Sat.
