a car at the the New Braunfels High School car smashing sponsored by the Student Council to build excitement before the Wurst Bowl The Unicorns fell to the Canyon Cougars in the game Friday night Several homeowners along the Guadalupe River met with local and state officials Satur day and the the main issue homeowners want ed to discuss was litter Officials from the county the state the GuadalupeBlanco River Authority and Texas Parks and Wildlife answered questions about what could be done to clean up or prevent lit tering on the river State Representative Edmund Kuempel said he realizes litter is a problem but he said there will always be some and the aim needs to be reducing it Certainly when you have thousands of peo ple per day all through the summer yes were going to have trash Theres no question of he said Homeowners questioned whether outfitters should be responsible for cleaning up more of the litter Bill Mayo a member of the Water Oriented Recreation District and a homeown er said WORD has contracted with two out fitters to provide river cleanup However he said other outfitters do not help As far as other outfitters go its a cold day in hell before youll see other outfitters out here cleaning he said Several people suggested outfitters should be responsible for cleaning up the river They said employers are responsible for keeping their place of business clean and the same logic should be applied to the river If outfitters use the river as a place of business they ought to keep it said Fonda Wetsel who organized the meeting Kuempel as well as officials from Parks and Wildlife said this was not possible They said once tourists leave the outfitters property they are responsible for their own actions Officials said the solution will have to tackle the source of the problem and not the effect What weve got to do is work with and encourage those people using the river to keep it said County Judge Carter Casteel David Welsch GBRA director of project development said he believes the problem has gotten better and it can continue to If outfitters use the river as a place of business they ought to keep it Fonda Wetsel improve by addressing the problem of how the trash is getting into the river in the first place There have been major improvements not just in the amount of cans going in the river in the first plaoe but in public awareness also The education needs to he said The idea of having outfitters count the num ber of cans going on and off the river was then discussed Residents said outfitters could count the number of cans each group takes on the river If the same number did not come off the river money would be taken oul of their deposit Residents felt outfitters would cooperate because they would get to keep the money as well as be able to recycle the cans Sheriff Jack Bremer said he felt residents needed to leave the meeting with some sort of plan so people would not feel like they wast ed their time Residents agreed to contact ser vice organizations to start a campaign resem bling Adopt a and look further into education and work with the outfitters Mayo said he would continue to hold simi lar meetings in connection with the WORD board However he said homeowners and riv er outfitters would have to address the problem together for progress to occur I dont think we can any longer sit on oppo site sides of the river so to speak The outfit ters and homeowners will have to get togeth er at some said Mayo Wetsel said she was not satisfied at the end of the meeting She said she wanted to see a1 more definite set of actions come out of meet ing so improvements could be made The homeowners here arent hellraisers Were just frustrated We havent been able to solve the problem and we want help
