get out she was uninjured and did not need to go to the hospital For those one or two people in Coma County who dont believe this county and the city of New Braunfels are growing there are rnorc numbers to support the notion that the county is indeed continuing its dramatic growth cycle Various economic indicators from the first three months of 1995 show increases in almost every category over the first three months of last year according to a list compiled by the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce County building permits including single family multi family commercialtype buildings and other structures rose percent over last year 208 compared to 177 from January through March of 1994 Value of those structures rose about 22 from million to million In New Braunfels

would produce Initial budget is estimated at for purposes stated above Cameron Wiley who first began organizing a petition for creation several years ago said sev eral items would be of major concern initially We have to find a general manager someone who is going to be a gogetter someone who really understands the problem and can get things said Wiley who also included building a laboratory to test water quality as another step something he claims the Texas Water Develop ment Board would fund by 80 percent While few argue there is a concern for future water resources in the proposed districts area oth ers disagree with the creation on different points In a letter to the Canyon Lake TimesGuardian John Houchins who represents the Canyon Lake Water Supply Corporation says the CLWSC can better supply water to the region The answer to getting the water from where it is to where it is needed is certainly not the creation of another government entity like the Comal County Underground Water District with its pow er to he wrote Two lake residents Wallace M Green and Lois Duggan filed suit in district court against Wiley challenging the legality bf procedures pri or to the election Others question whether one area should have to sacrifice to bring water to another Still Wiley with all the controversy said the experience through the long process has been worth it I
