New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 4, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas Herald-Zeitung O Sunday, February 4,1996 □ 3 A WORD manager in new office District to add public relations employee By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer So far, Comal County Water Oriented Recreation District (WORD) Manager Jim Inman has many good things to say about his new office, located on FM 2673 in Sattler. “I think it is fine,” Inman said. ‘‘It has a nice paint job and good carpeting.” Inman, with the help of his neighbor Charles Barnes, moved into the new office three weeks ago. The new office, formerly a pet store, is locat ed right next to Canyon Lake Video. Inman said the owners of Canyon Lake Video, Mark and Tracy Lewis, gave WORD a good deal on the office. WORD has a one-year lease with an option for another year. As part of the lease, WORD will pay the Lewises $330 a month, Inman said. “They (Lewises) have been really, really nice to us,” Inman said. “They are one of our strongest WORD supporters.” The new office is almost double the space of the former headquarters on 1400 Sattler Road. WORD had to move out of that office space because the lease on it had expired. Inman is used to moving around. When he became manager in 1992, his offices were locat ed at the Comal County Courthouse. In 1994, WORD moved out of the courthouse and into the Sattler office before moving to its present location. The WORD manager still has to find space for boxes of records. He said the buying of an additional filing cabinet will be needed. Records from the years 1993-94 will most likely be moved to the WORD boat shed on FM 2673. Once the records are stored properly and everything is put into place, Inman said there will be enough desk space for another person to work in the office. WORD is currently searching for a part-time public relations person and is expected to hire one in the near future. J* "V & From staff reports Students from Mountain Valley Elementary School have helped raise $3,600 for Project KISS (Kids in Safe Surroundings). During their “Pennies for KISS” campaign, the school children filled their classroom jugs with numerous pennies. “Pennies for KISS” started on Jan. 16 and will run until Friday, Feb. 9. Each classroom has a water jug that they fill with pennies, and the top classes that raise the most money are awarded prizes. Proceeds from the campaign will go toward the construction of the Canyon Lake Community Youth Recreation Center. “We have raised more money this year because the kids want to see a rec center built,” Project KISS founder Trish Wyatt said. “They know who they are doing it for and know what the money is for.” The next Project KISS event was the Valentine Ball, which was scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 3 beginning at the Canyon Lake Country Club in the Woodlands. Wyatt said she was hoping to raise at least $10,000 from the Valentine Ball for Project KISS.

City Attorney Jacqueline Cullom outlined some differences between the present Historic Preservation Ordinance and the proposed one: ■ The proposed ordinance would have nine members, with three or less living in the extra-territorial jurisdiction. The current one has seven, and residency is not required. ■ The proposed ordinance would appoint a Historic Preservation Officer. The current law has none. ■ The proposed ordinance has criteria for approval of “alteration cer tificates” when a property owner wants to change a historic property. The present ordinance has no such criteria. ■ The proposed ordinance would have an economic hardship application process. The current ordinance has none. ■ The proposed ordinance has a specific procedure and time line for citizens to request a historic district designation. The current law allows the city council to designate a historic landmark without the property owner’s consent. ■ The proposed ordinance allows a district to change or rescind the historic designation. The current ordinance does not. ■ Both ordinances do allow the city to buy a historic property “if deemed necessary to preserve landmark or eligible landmark. The Bet! Pizza In Town.
