order to cover the debt service rate Sollberger explained that when the city refi nanced its bonds it saved which was used for the maintenance and operations budget for this year Last year the debt service rate was cents This year itwill go back to cents he said t The debt service went down The mainte Department heads present budget proposals nance and operations was allowed to go he said In order for the city to keep the current tax rate for next years budget the maintenance and operations tax rate will have to be reduced by one cent City staff members also discussed the possi bility of hiring new people in the upcoming fiscal year City Manager Mike Shands said it was the consensus of the staff that the department to be worked on first should be the police department New Braunfels Police Chief Dick Headen pre sented a plan to the council that would allow him to hire six patrol officers two detectives and one dispatcher Headen said hiring a dispatcher could pay for itself because the current dispatchers would not receive as much overtime pay Concerning patrol men he said if each patrol officer wrote two tickets per day nearly could be raised in one year He explained the average fine assessed for a ticket is Fines can be assessed not only for traffic vio lations but also public intoxication arrests minors in possession etc Were not talking about creating any kind of speed said Headen I feel like we would not create an excessive amount of ill will We could absorb the difference for the budget almost entirely if not he said We would be setting goals and increasing Headen also pointed out that fines given for class A and B misdemeanor offenses arepaid to Comal County although the arrests were made by city officers He estimates goes to the I county for city arrests He explained that counties have outlobbied cities during legislative ses sions Other items discussed include increased sales tax revenue money from NBU increased prop erty taxes from new

to quit the board Bruce entirely I have sent him a letter asking that for the good of the school district he resign as board Kirk said The reason that Im asking him to resign as president is that I feel like on a number of occasions he has been in violation of the Texas Open Meetings Act Kirk took exception to Middleton inviting resigned Trustee Tom Potter to return to the board Its a little hard to understand where theyre coming Middleton said Almost everything theyve done since each of them has been on the board has been some kind of a cry wolf deal that weve spent a lot of money on and it turns out to be Middleton admitted he has been open to allowing more discussion than strict parliamentary procedures would allow Im trying to be as open as J can and I get criticized for he said I think that theres something else behind it I think for whatever reason they and the faction they seem to represent feel threatened by me and I dont really know why As I understand their biggest complaint is that there was some kind of big con spiracy to bring Tom Potter back on the board That was talked about at probably four different Middleton said he would step down as president if the majority of the board so desired Comal ISD board mem bers receive no pay The only way you can have a legal consensus is to post an item on the agenda discuss it have a motion have a second and have that motion never did Kirk said about Potter Potter resigned so that his daughter could seek a job with CISD The board was indecisive about how to replace him so he returned last month at Middletons invi tation Trustee Thomas Bruce said he called for Middletons resignation because of lack of rules of order He doesnt ask for the opposition vote and he also gets very personal and attacks other board Bruce said Hes also had informal consensus Thats another thing about asking Mr Middleton to resign is that this board I feel has lost its credibility towards the public They thtak were a Bruce and Kirk said they felt Potters seat should be filled only by a vote of the people Potter will not be able to seek reelection because of the new singlemember dis trict election system recently approved by a federal judge The CISD board meek Thursday ISA 27 at Smithson Valley Middle School Board membership and possible reorganization will be on the agenda for a bargain the HeraldZeifong
