emergency and banned outdoor burning in an effort to reduce the risk of fires during currently dry conditions Comal County Fire Marshal Milton Willman said the ban prohibits people from burning any combustible material in an unenclosed area He said this does not include fires for food preparation However caution should be exer cised and even open campfires should be avoided he said Willman said officers will simply tell people to put the fire out the first time If subsequent calls are made they will be arrested Violation of the order is a misdemeanor and punish able by up to a fine or up to 180 injaii People using common sense will appreciate it and now that theres a ban we can stop more people from burning said Commissioner Moe Schwab who was act ing judge and declared the order Willman said the order has been under con sideration for several weeks He said the fire department has been called out on several pret ty big brush fires over the past three or four days and weather conditions do not appear to be changing We kept putting it off hoping one of those tropical storms or hurricanes would give us some rain but they he said Willman said the largest fire burned about four acres and no one was hurt He said the order is a precaution to try and prevent the fires and possible injuries The emergency order went into effect at 11 Thursday It will go before the commis sioners court on Tuesday for approval Schwab said the order will then remain in place until weather conditions change and the county receives quite a bit of rain In other court business Jim Inman general manager for the Water Oriented Recreation District reported that taxes for the second quarter have been collected and the total col lected was more than He said the total from the second quarter last year was He said these funds are used to pay for the law enforcement the portable bathrooms and various other costs the board Inman said the large amount collected was a result of good water flows this summer He said the tax is collected for water recreation which means it comes from outfitters campgrounds and lodging accommodations within the dis trict He said the exact use of the funds will be determined during the next budget and plan ning process for the board I Registration must be filed within I Weils already registered with the EUWD do not have to be reregis Well owners can request a vari ance from the due date The variance request must have a the length of time for which variance is requested I b reasons for seeking a variance c sworn statement that the facts in th variance request are true Specific penalties for nonregistered wfjlls have yet to be decided Eagle said We dont want to give people the impression that were drawing a line in th Guadalupe outfitters busy despite low flow By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer The release level into the Guadalupe River has been lowered again However outfitters on both the Comal and Guadalupe rivers say business continues to do well and many are still turning to the rivers for week end fun David Welsch director of projects for the GuadalupeBlanco River Authority said the current release rate into the Guadalupe River is 141 cubic feet per sec ond He said the current level of the reser voir is at feet above mean sea level which means all the flood waters from ear lier in the summer have been released He said he believes it is very unlikely that the release rate will fall below 100 cfs over the next week or two Weve had a good recreational sum mer but now we need some he said Jim Inman general manager of the Water Oriented Recreation District said the Guadalupe River is still enjoyable He said it is ideal for families with young children because the lower level results in a calmer safer river Zero Rivers owner of Rockin R River Rides said he will be putting smaller boats on the river and most loads will contain two or three people He said the tubing will still be good for everyone and tubers and rafters will be concentrated on the sec tion of the river from Gruene down to Cypress Bend Park because the section between the first and second crossings will be too low Rivers said he has continually been busy River Update she said The district Includes the eastern portion of Comal County and has not lost a lot of business to the Comal River He said he does not push tubers to the Comal until the level gets below 100 cfs and that is not the current case Jay Felger owner of Felgers Tcjob Rental said the Comal River is still beau tiful and perfect for tubing without dragging bottom He said he has not seen a pig increase in business since levels started dropping in the Guadalupe but there pas been a slight increase However he said the fact that schools are getting ready to start has also limited his business Now that people are starting to comip to the Comal schools starting back he said Clinton Brandt one of the owners of the Ole Mill Stream said he has not seen a large increase related to the Guadalupe lev els He said the current water level is com parable to what it was at the beginning of summer and that does a lot to help busi ness We have a clientele that comes year after year and it just keeps growing every year I dont think you can say its because of low levels at the he sail Regardless of which river tourists chose they are sure to find the water cool md
