By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Voters in the New Braunfels Inde pendent School District are currently considering the fate of a SI 5 million bond proposal to be decided Dec 10 Several items are listed in the pro posal including a million ele mentary and additions to other cam puses A large part of the bond package however deals with roofs or rather replacing them Work at four cam puses is estimated to cost nearly S3 million The district wishes to install gabled or angled roofs instead of the current flat roofs which hold too much water and must be repaired too often said Assistant Superintendent Lonnie Cur tis Metal roofs have a longer life he said We would have to replace a flat roof four or five times to every metal expectancy is 50 to 65 years for metal Part of that depends on how well you maintain Curtis said a large factor in the bid ding process should the bond pass would be to see who could provide the longest warranty for the installed metal roofs He said 1020 years was about average Metal roofs last longer but cost more Officials say it is better to pay now than continually repair roofs such as some they repairing after 13 years Foresight is better than hindsight We decided we better not do this said Curtis The district will have to fix and pay for the roofs at some point he said adding that Seele and Lone Star had the worst leakage problems There are also proposals for million roof projects at both New Braunfels Middle School and New Braunfels High School built in the 1950s and 1960s respectively The NBISD has already begun drawing plans for repairs to the high school roof which Curtis said must be done whether the bond passes or not He said officials are planning to install metal roofs similar to those part of the bond package Metal roofs already exist at portions of the Lone Star and Carl Schurz cam puses and are included at the Memor ial campuses Unemployment rate unchanged By TECLO Staff Writer The Texas Employment Commis sion announced that Comal Countys unemployment rate remained virtual ly unchanged from August to Sep tember as the states rate dropped two tenths of a percentage point The countys unemployment rate By TECLO J GARCIA Staff Writer The New Braunfels City Council will discuss and consider on Monday entering into an interlocal agreement with New Braunfels Utilities to employ Doug Miller as the Citys water nego tiator The controver sial subject was resurrected three weeks ago at the councils last meeting when Councilwoman Jan Kennady inserted the item on the meetings agenda Mayor Doug Miller Paul Fraser has spoken against Miller being installed as the Citys water negotiator He said Miller was not qualified to deal with the complex water issues because Miller sells Millers contract as the negotiator ran out earlier this year and it was not renewed bythc city Miller currently serves as NBU and Cornal County negotiator Also at its regularmeeting the coun cil will consider funding a San Antonio College survey at the request of the Off Campus Higher Education Steer ing Committee The study will help SAC find out how the college can best serve the New Braunfels area It will determine what classes it will offer after the spring semester SAC offi cials plan to ask the council for The study will cost more than that however SAC will pay the remainder of the balance The council will also deliberate des ignating the Dittlinger Memorial Advi sory Board to investigate and evaluate potential sites for a new library The board told the council last week the library must have more space in order to serve the communitys needs Two of the most talked cation sites for the library include the old Plaza Bank building and the building the grocery chain will vacate next week An spokeswoman told the HeraldZeitung last week it would consider lowering the price of the building should the city want it for a library The square foot building has not been sold although has had several inquiries about it the spokeswoman said did not reveal the price of the building The meeting begins at on Monday at the Municipal Build ing HEB planning big celebration JL for superstores grand opening By TECLO J

Spokesman Mike De La Garza said the parade will be symbol ic Its to show the continuity between the old store and the new he said It is a good opportunity to show the While the store is not the largest in chain the most obvious dif ference from the old store is the space allowed each customer Isles are wide and the entrance and exit are a marked improvement over the strange in and out ways
