Which solution to growth will cost CISD taxpayers the most By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Comal Independent School District taxpayers will likely see a rise in their taxes regardless of how they choose to deal with the growing population of CISD students say district officials There is going to be an additional nnVr iri Randolph AFB closure would be major blow to areas economy By TECLO Staff Writer Talk is cheap but if the talk about Randolph AFB turns out to be correct the bases closure could cost the local econ omy millions of dollars in payroll and lost revenue Its estimated that Randolphs personnel contributes over million dollars to the New Braunfels economy annually not counting the amount thousands of military retirees spend in the area The base employs civilian and military personnel and supports dependents many of which live in the New Braunfels area The Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission has yet to put Randolph on its list of recommended closures it will present to President Clinton However recent media reports have Randolph as a pos sibility to make the list Officials from Washington and San Antonio have also said it was a strong possibility the base could end up on the list One local official does not believe the base will close Everything we have found out we have been reassured there is nothing in the cards that says Randolph will Tom Purdum president of the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce said A Randolph spokesperson said he would not comment on the possibility of making the list We do not speculate on the base closing said Mas ter Sergeant David Jewell Thats up to Congress and the But with so many area residents tied to the base some are worried at just hearing about a possible closure Even the consideration of the closure of

experts said Fraser said the suit was unrelated to Randolphs consid eration for closure I cant think of anything more he said To punish a region that might include New Braunfels that serves thousands of retirees and active Finance Director Abel Campos growth is really the only son a budget goes up You hire more teachers for one More than sixty percent of the school budget is devoted to teacher salaries and more have been hired this year nearly 40 at just under million to meet the need The CISD reported 840 more students at the beginning of this school year compared to last A million bond election for new schools is scheduled for Sept 10 as one option for dealing with the growth Campos told the school board last week that the additional cost for the new buildings would be about 05 cents on the tax rate One board mem ber speculated the cost of the bond would also be high What would it cost for staff books and supplies at the new schools said Board Member Thomas Bruce Campos said he had not figured in the variables but said additional staff would be needed One of the variables involves the furniture The last time the district built new schools furni ture was bought through money off interest rates Campos said that goal would be the same however interest rates are not as high as they were at that time Voters defeated the last bond in May of 1993 a million package for a
