Comal County Animal Control officers next year will bring stray dogs caught in the western part of the county to a veterinarian in Bulverde instead of driving to New Braunfels County Commissioners are expected to vote Thursday to approve bids to add an additional clinic in the Bulverde area to board stray animals in the county The county will be rezoned at the beginning of the year breaking up the large zone in the western part of the county Steve McKin department head for the animal control said one zone covered the large western part of the county many years ago because no veterinarians prac ticed in the Bulverde area The rezoning and expanding services are in response to the rapid growth of the county McKin said As the years go on were going to get more and more calls because the county is McKin said The county has two New Braunfels and one Canyon Lake clinic Animals also are taken to the New Braun fels Humane Society The new veterinary services will decrease the response times to calls significantly said Julie Hubertus secretary for the animal control office The 45minute drive from New Braunfels to Bulverde will be shortened If were already in Bulverde and get a call in Bul verde its going to be a fiveminute Hubertus said McKin said the new boarding services also will be more convenient for the owners of the animals Theressa Kothmann office manager for the Bulverde Animal Hospital which submitted a bid said a boarding facili ty in the Bulverde area could reunite more lost dogs with their owners They dont think about calling animal control in New Kothmann said If they call hear about a lost animal then we might have The animal control departments budget was increased this year to from to fund the fourth clin ic and to allow for additional spending McKin said McKin said the twoofficer animal control depart ment picks up about 30 dogs per officer per month McKin said he would like another officer in the department The Commissioners must fund such an expansion through the budget I tried this year but they said no but theyll look into he said The expansion of M35 through New Braunfels received an extra push Thursday when a group from San Antonio appeared before the Texas Department of Transportation Commission and asked for funding to complete the expansion through Comal County Comal County Judge Carter Casteel who attended the meeting said the San Antonio Trans portation Alliance appeared before the commis sion to request 1999 discretionary funding for three projects The three projects included the IH10 and Loop 410 interchange the Airport and Loop 410 interchange both in San Antonio and the expansion of IH35 through Comal Coun ty They included 135 because were the bottle neck For San Antonio to be requesting funding for a project in Comal County says something about the importance of the Casteel said The San Antonio representatives said the expansion of IH35 is important to the flow of traffic between Austin and San Antonio They said NAFTA will increase traffic and make the expan sion even more critical Casteel said that a piece of kinked water hose was handed out to illustrate the impact the section has on the smooth flow of traffic Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce President Michael Meek said the alliance request ed 1999 funding because the funds through 1998 have already been allocated He said there were about 160 people from San Antonio and about 15 from New Braunfels and Comal County present to show support for the project We were quite pleased to see they had 135 on their list of projects Now we have to just wait and see but well continue the he said Meek said there is no way to tell when a deci sion may be made However he said that New Braunfels has already requested to be placed on the agenda in the first quarter of 1996 in case things dont go the way we want them Meek said he was impressed by the presenta tion and the support shown He said there is no way to predict what the commission will decide However he said projects in Houston and Dallas have already been funded and San Antonio stands a good chance I was encouraged by what I heard and I was encouraged by the commissioners remarks that they understand the size of the problem Now we just she said Symphony concert set for next Sunday The MidTexas Symphony will pre sent its holiday concert on Sunday Dec
