Resource Conservation Commission commissioners rejected its application for a standard exemption Ingram has filed a motion for a rehearing TNRCC spokesman Terry Hadley said Mon day It the motion is scheduled to be on the commissions agenda this Wednes day in Hadley said Hadley said the three TNRCC com missioners can either reject the motion or approve it If the motion is approved it would be referred to the State Office of Administrative Hearings which would set the time date and location for a hearing Last spring Ingram filed for a stan dard exemption which is granted by TNRCC to those concrete batch plants Which meet numerous guide lines Ingram had Wanted to build the plant at the intersection of Highway 281 and FM 1863 on a acre However Bulverde area resi dents signed a petition asking TNR CC to hold hearings Opponents of the plartt formed CLEAN Citizens League for Environmental Action CLEAN claimed the plant would cause environmental water and safety prob lems for Bulverde Hearings were held in September in both Austin and at the Guadalupe Val ley TelephoneCooperative Adminis trative Law Judge Bill Ehret presided over the hearings and recommended to the commission that Ingram be granted the standard exemption citing that Ingram had met all the require ments for it On Feb 7 at a meeting attended by dozens of Bulverde citizens the TNR CC commissioners voted 21 to reject Ehrets recommendation The com missioners who voted against the appli cation Chairman Barry McBee and Ralph Marquez cited computer air modeling evidence brought up by CLEAN which showed the plants air emissions would exceed its proper ty lines This would be a violation of the standard exemption Hadley said the TNRCC sent an order to Ingram on March 1 notifying the company that it had 20 days to file a motion for a rehearing which Ingram did Bruce Ingram president of Ingram Readymix in New Braunfels con firmed that his company has filed for a rehearing before the TNRCC He did not say

the looks of early vot ing we may be a little she said Streater also added that polling loca tions today However the list of locations has changed from the primary last month She said the parties have consolidated some precincts and not others and the list of locations are not the same for both parties Its probably going to confuse a lot of voters but I dont think it will stop people from she said

increase in the fees is for husbaridrandwife golfers Under cur rent prices residents pay while nonresidents pay The new fees charge for hus bandandwife are New Braunfels residents and for non residents The final passage of the increases came after lengthy debate over exact ly who should pay for the privilege of playing golf at the cityrun course Councilwoman Brenda Freeman had proposed lower annual fees but per round surcharges I think its fair to assume that those who play the vast majority of golf will pay the most of the Freeman said But Freemans proposal and a sim ilar council proposal to charge lower annual fees but add green fees were met with great opposition from most of the 100 golfers who attended Monday nights meeting This is our hobby This is our pas time This is where we put our money into on a fixed said golfer Earl Thomas Matt Phair chairman of the Golf Course Advisory Board said if the council passed a proposal which included title payasyouplay fees you can kiss our winter visitors Instead the council passed the increases suggested by the Golf Course Advisory Board The board suggested that outoftown golfers who do not pay annual fees be charged for weekday play and on weekends and holidays The proposal passed Monday also creates a new category of annual fees for winter Texans Golfers planning to use the course for four months or less will be charged for singles and for husbandandwife golfers The first reading of the fees was April Second reading of the fees was tabled at the May and Dec 11 1995 meetings The fees which were passed on the first reading were again passed by a 5to2 vote March 25 The increases will go inti effect May 1 New prograhi targets street light vandals By MELANIE GERIK Staff Writer The Safe City Commission wants
