feasibility of open ing the stations be conducted Last week the council tabled a deci sion on whether or not to authorize the city manager to solicit bids for the sale of fire station No 4 on Kerlick Lane Tamayo said no plans are being made to open either stations He said they were closed many years ago because the New Braunfels Fire Department did not have the man power to utilize the building We dont have manpower Its a simple matter of having more he said Tamayo also said Fire Station No 4 has only one access route which is out Kerlick Lane and onto a busy Other than that they would have to stay in the he said Normally the state doesnt want a fire station in the middle of a neigh borhood They dont want a con glomeration of New Braunfels Fire Chief Phil Bak er said his primary concern is to have adequate fire protection for all of the city The location of Station No 4 when it was first opened may have been an adequate place to put a As the city has grown and things have changed the station has become inad equate as far as I would like to see another station go up in that area More likely it would be further out on Highway he said Baker cited the growth in the north and west areas of the dry as the reaspn a station would be needed in that area He said he did not have any prefer ence one way or the other about selling Station No 4 Concerning Station No 5 Baker said it is in an adequate location Its got good access The only thing were lacking is manpower for the sta tion Weve been talking for several years about reopening it All it would take is the men to do it Personnel cost he said Mayor Pro Tern Butch Benitez has expressed concern over the future of the two stations He said he would like to the study to explore how the city can come up with the manpower to open the stations Todays Texas Lottery numbers are 4 6 17 30 38 45 Jackpot million
