County Commissioners opened bids for court house security proposals Thursday with the knowledge that a fourth successful burglary has occurred in the complex within the last six weeks Comal County Sheriff Jack Bremer said the most recent burglary occurred Tuesday night He said there was no sign of forced entry and about was taken He said that in all thefour breakins have resulted in a weapon and small amounts of cash being taken from various locations in the three buildings County Judge Carter Casteel said Tuesdays burglary marked the fourth successful burglary in the complex and now all three buildings have been involved in the breakins Bremer said the four events occurred within the last 30 days to six weeks but he has no indication that the four are linked All of them are still under investigation Theres not a lot of leads but were following up on some things we do said Bremer Ironically the fourth burglary occurred just days before the commissioners opened bids for security atthe court house complex Casteel said the bids are being looked at and hopes it will only take a couple of weeks before a recommendation is made Bremer said there is no way to tell how long it will take to approve a bid and a plan and get it installed He said he is implementing an interim plan until then Im going to take some other measures and get some other things done until said Bremer Casteel said she believes the burglaries will cause peo ple involved with the plan to focus more and come to some sort of agreement on security quicker Its making some of us quit the arguing about some things and its making all of us focus a little more I she said Bremer said that had the proposed security plan been in place at the time of the most recent burglary the Sheriffs Department would have been aware of a problem in the bujlding Had we had our security system in place with the motion detectors any motion after hours would have been said Bremer Flood warning system for Guadalupe pursued By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer Camping along the Guadalupe River between Canyon Dam and New Braun fels will get safer Plans are underway to develop system to monitor the river and set off sirens if a flash flood hits according to Comal County Fire Mar shal Milton Willmann Willmann said he has wanted some sort of warning system for a long However he said an incident around Memorial Day weekend may have pushed the issue to the forefront The day after everyone left town on Memorial Day weekend it started to rain in the middle of the night Will mann said between six and 11 inches of rain fell and several areas flooded He said no one was seriously injured but tents and cars were under water A string of campgrounds line the river along River Road Even the weather service was a lit tle fooled because that little cloud didnt look like it was dropping that said Willmann Thats what sparked the newest interest in monitoring the Willmann said the system which is still in the early planning stages would have gauges to monitor rain in the watershed area as well as the river lev el He said the system would probably be similar to the one in Kerr County where the gauges are tied by antenna to software in a central monitoring system He said the software would update con ditions every 20 minutes but a person could also call up current conditions within two to five minutes It can also be program so that when levels reach a certain point it will alert whoever is watching the said Willmann He said the funding for the system as well as some of the finer details will be discussed at a meeting Tuesday after noon Representatives from the GuadalupeBlanco River Authority the Edwards Underground Water District the Water Oriented Recreation District the National Weather Service and the Sheriffs Department will attend a meet ing with Willmann One of the points that will be dis cussed will be who will be responsible for the system and the monitoring Will mann said k determination has not been made yet However he would like an agency lik the National Weather Ser vice to be esponsible for the monitor ing He sad it could do the predicting and forecasting and the Fire and Sher iffs departments would be able to access the information to determine when flood warnings need to go out We then establish historical data that wjould help us determine when evacuations or warnings would be nec essary to give people especially campers along the river time to move to a little higher he said Willmann there is still a lot of work that needs to be done on the project and it is hard to estimate a completion date However he would like to see something done by the end of April In the meantime Willmann said he has been working with WORD man ager Jim 1 nman to develop an evacua tion plan that establishes places peo ple can move to that generally do not flood Hi said the plans are about halfway complete and it is now a mat ter of getting them written down and agreed to u
