January Mayor Fraser asks chief appraiser to consider reappraisal of Cemex By TECLO Staff Writer New Braunfels Mayor Paul Fraser asked the citys chief appraiser to con sider reappraising the former Lafarge Balcones Cement Plant since its sale to Cementos Mexico for mil lion three weeks ago In a letter to Chief Appraiser Lynn Rodgers Fraser said city was interest ed in a reappraisal because a non annexation agreement between the city and the surrounding quarries to end in early 1995 It obvious therefore that the Cemex Balcones Plant should be considered for reappraisal as soon as Fraser stated in the letter Certainly one would think the Comal County Commissioners and the Comal Inde pendent School District would be desirous of such a reappraisal since it could mean a significant addition to the tax collections rather than as the prop erty is currently appraised on the tax Broken up into Sunbelt Cement and Sunbelt Asphalt Rodgers said the property is valued at just under million The property and plant are located on Wald Road just southwest of the city The sale to Cemex included four other storage and distribution stations in Texas Rodgers said his office reevaluates properties every year He said the value of the property sometimes depends on the market the company is in All data including what information we can confirm concerning the recent sale will be taken into said Rodgers He said the city has hired a contrac tor to appraise the site because the contractor only handles industrial appraisals and might do a more thor ough evaluation of the property We are now in the process of mak ing our appraisals for January he said Capital Appraisal will go out there sometime between now and the end of the Should the reappraisal heighten the value of the property it would prove to be a financial boost to Comal Inde pendent School District Yes it will impart it but how much is hard to said CISD Finance Director Abel Campos The impact might not be as significant as you might Campos did say however that the Sunbelt property is one of CISDs top tax payers and that he did not anticipate any huge adjustments one way or another ByTECLOJ GARCIA Staff Writer San Antonio
