efficiently will be a priority for him in his coming term I lost a bunch of votes by hanging my hat on WORD But it has gotten nothing but better in the last three years and I think it will get better this Schwab also said he plans to study innovative solid waste treatment alter natives such as composting or bum ing the waste Nolan said he thought the vote would narrow through the evening instead of having the margin grow wider He said that in a primary with a low turnout it largely becomes a contest of which candidate does a bet ter job getting out the vote We worked hard My supporters did a great job We worked hard to get out the vote to the point that I was afraid we were starting to harass he said Nolan said he thought 975 votes would win the contest and he was pleased that turnout was a little high er than he expected We were up against a tough polit ical organization and we just didnt get enough people out to Nolan said I had a lot of good people who want change in Comal County He said he doubts he will seek pub lic office again I would be very sur prised I really think people need to like a turn at public service and I took mine I think it would be asking too much of my family to run agaia Oak Village North could be Comal Countys next city By MARK LYON Managing Editor A new city may be on the brink of sprouting up in the southwest section of Comal County should residents of Oak Village North subdivision approve a proposal to incorporate on May 7 A movement began last year to study the issue of incorporation according to Pam Papsun who will preside as election judge over the election The results of the study were released at a meet ing of about 150200 residents who decided to pursue issue further A petition map and sur vey were presented to Comal County Commis sioners in late November and an election date was set According to Papsun the effort to gain incor poration stems from the threat of San Antonios Extra Territorial Jurisdiction ETJ and possible annexations in northern Bexar County and south em Comal County This is not the first time this has been brought said Papsun About nine years ago this was studied but it was determined that then it wasnt a big enough threat A lot of the research done then was used in this study We just replaced the old statistics with current Papsun said there are about 450 hones ranging from to in the Oak Village North subdivision She said that currently there are no businesses but a volunteer fire station wiU serve as the polling location This area is growing real she said Papsun said that the proposed city would have a aldermen type of government but that the dty would continue to contract for fire and police protection with Comal County unless the city council passed ordinances which would have to be enforced The proposed city would take up less than two square miles and is located just south of Hwy 46 and east of Smithson Valley Road Thats one of the opportunities they have out there said County Judge Carter Casteel They can provide their own services with this move However well work with them either San Antonio official are studying the possible annexation of Country Place a subdivision three miles south of Oak Village North An annexation of Country Place would threaten the chancesof Oak Village Norths incorporation options by putting OVN within San Antonios ETJ five There are people out here for and against the Papsun said Were just trying to let the people here decide whether we should do that or not Some folks out here just dont want to be part of San Antonio especially against their Coma County currently has only two incor porated Braunfels Dont miss Horizons94 Coming March 27 in the HeraldZeitung
