submit items to Stammtisch According to the Sophien burg Archives and members of the German community Sfammtisch represents a sitting place for members of the community to gather and share the days happenings We invite you to share with Printed on recycled paper aniendm By JENNIFER ROMPEL Staff Writer The New Braunfels City Council voted down a proposal Monday night to formally declare the adoption of var ious amendments to the existing Home Rule City Charter The issue was brought before the council by Councilmen Paul Fraser and Chris Bowers Council persons Dan Bremer Jan Kennady and Butch Benitez abstained from the vote Fras er Bowers and Mayor Rudy Seidel voted to adopt the items with the exception of Amendment 2 and Amendment 4 Kennady Bremer and Benitez chose to abstain from the vote because they thought it would be illegal to vote on whether to adopt or not adopt an amendment when the voters had already chosen to pass or not pass the amendments City Attorney Barry Moore explained that the councils actual duty is to declare that the amendments have been adopted The amendments would then take effect at that point Benitez said he thought the council had made that declaration at the time it canvassed the votes Kennady agreed with Benitez It seems to me that when the votes are It certifies the results of the election It seems redundant to do it she said Kennady said she would have no problem declaring the amendments adopted as the citizens had voted on them but she does not believe the council has the authority to decide which ones should or should not be adopted What we would be doing is vetoing what the citizens she said Amendment 2 deals with the term limitations of council members and was approved by New Braunfels resi dents Amendment 4 requested Article III of the city charter be amended to delete the requirement that a member of the city council must be a property owner Citizens voted against this amendment Federal law states that a person does not have to be a property owner to hold office Moore said this has been an unenforceable law since 1968 During this portion of the discus sion the issue was also raised on whether or not the election was con ducted legally especially concerning Amendment 2 New Braunfels resident Ted Alexan der said voters were given several ver sions of Amendment 2 at public hear ings in the paper and postings at the municipal building We need to not be so concerned about the candidate and be concerned about what happened in the election We need to be friends of each other as well as of Dan he said Alexander suggested city residents should be offered the opportunity to vote on Amendment 2 again City council members directed Moore to investigate whether or not the election was conducted properly and if it was not whether or not it can be held again Moore is expected to brief the council at its next meeting to be held in two weeks Olympic Festival under way at Canyon Lake HeraldZeitung photo
