hearing will be incorporated in the budget as passed The adoption of the tax rate will be postponed and adopted at the regular Commissioners Court session on Thursday instead of today as previ ously planned The most controversial item dis cussed at Thursdays Commissioners Court meeting was the needs of Canyon Lake citizens for Emergency Medical Services Brenda Locke Canyon Lake resi dent asked commissioners to consid er funding a fulltime paramedic to provide coverage for the area from 8 to 5 during the week when volunteers are unavailable The leadership of the Canyon Lake EMS and Emergency Service District have not asked for additional said County Judge Carter Cas teel They have requested and I have recommended Locke was suggesting that the coun ty fund the position until the BSD dis trict could collect the taxes which will eventually support such services She said that the provided for the Canyon Lake EMS was barely enough to provide for supplies and equipment maintenance She said the commissioners should be concerned about the level of service available to Canyon Lake residents and should not be attributing their deci sion to the lack of a request from the ESD district board Youre acting like you dont know this is a said Locke You all are paid the board members are volunteers Health and safety is your Casteel suggested that Locke consult with the Canyon Lake ESD district board and the Canyon Lake EMS organization itself and have them approach the commissioners if they felt the need for additional funding Locke actively worked for the for mation of the Fire District a taxing entity like the ESD because she said you said we had to do something to help ourselves and weve done that now its your turn to help Ted Key candidate for county judge also spoke during the county budget hearing process prefacing his comments with his support for Lockes position Key questioned why Commissioner Cristina Zamoras car allowance was less than that of the other commis sioners It was explained that previously trav el expenses were not thought to be necessary for her precinct since it was in New Braunfels and did not require travel from distant parts of the county Casteel said however that since the position did require travel on behalf of the county at various times she had recommended that all commissioners be paid the same car allowances Undercover

Childrens Museum due to yearly slow period ByMARKLYON Managing Editor The New Braunfels Childrens Museum which was reported last week to be considering a possible perma nent closure may not face that possi bility afterall Executive Director Car olyn Burrows has told the Herald Zeitung According to Burrows the museum normally faces financial problems dur ing a period from midJuly through Museum faces slow period from July to October each year Burrows says October each year and frequently has to pay some bills later than normal Every year we have the same situ ation because we start receiving less business especially at the start of the school year when the kids are spending their time in school and those schools have yet to begin their field trip pro she said We are also in a posi tion where some of the sources of large donations to this museum have still not Burrows said that Southwestern Bell has committed to the museum for the coming year WW has happened is weve grown both in apace and in she said Weve increased our size so naturally we have a larger electric bill to pay We Ve also got more exhibits than were used to having So the figure that we deal with every year at this time has increased In an interview with museum board members last week the museum was said to be some in debt and could possibly face closure by the end of October if things do not improve Burrows that though the debt is there it may not necessarily spell the end of business for the museum Were not about to she said Ive got too much time and energy into this to let that happen WeVe just got to be more patient and let some things take their course We know this community has supported us Were just in a down period of the year right now Were closed this week for repairs and have done this because it is a stow time of the year That makes it a good time to make the repairs we have to The museum is expected to reopen by Sept 3 and will begin a fall sched ule soon after For classified
