said GBRA Chief Engineer Tommy Hjll in a released statement When the level reaches 909 feet msl the GBRA essen tially takes over control of release rates from the Army Corps of Engineers which had been releasing water at around 550 cfs on a steady basis something of a new sys tem from the Corps who initiated the system through requests by the GBRA and outfitters 320 cfs is a good rate and wed love to have 300 cfs through the July 4th said Al Zator of Little Ponderosa How long it will last is the Hill said the GBRA hopes to be able to continue to release 300 cfs or more through the July 4th weekend but said releases are dependent upon weather and rainfall conditions We will do our best to advise the public of any changes in the release and encourage them to take advantage of this stable release rate all week long which is excellent for recreational uses and family said Hill Outfitters have consistently lobbied for a reserve poolat the lake which could keep a constant flow through the traditionally dry months We need a constant flow in the river said What we have is what is left over after release from the spring Zator said GBRA has done a good job in recognizing the importance of recreation and working with the Corps He said he would like to see more lobbying support from county officials and WORD to help insure constant flow at a good rate City decides to eliminate Safe City director position ByJENNIFERROMPEL Staff Writer City officials announced this week that the position of Safe City Director will be eliminated in the upcoming months According to New Braunfels City

five years to be phased out We still funded it when the grant ran he said Shands discussed the decision with Safe City Director Mike Grist last week and then brought the issue to the Safe City Commission He said the commission had concerns about the decision to Mike Grist eliminate the directors posi tion They are rightfully con cerned They do not want to see the program dimin ished We will still have the commission and it is func tional We have strong ded icated volunteers We will still have staff said Shands The safe city panel is made up of volunteer members and a chairperson They are currently trying to said Grist Shands said the decision to eliminate the posi tion was not made during public budget work shops because additional funding was found to support the position Grist explained that he expected that if the position was cut it would be cut during the citys budget sessions 1 thought I had gotten another he said A decision was on the table at that time If we had not gotten additional funding it would have been cut back then I have had the chance to look at the city budget for the last six months We need to have that money for other uses within the said Shands The duties of the safe city director will be assumed by the commission and by New Braun fels Police Chief Dick Headen The idea for the commission originated in the police department We have come full
