tracts funded by the hotel occupancy tax at its i Tuesday meeting The RFP will be made public June 1 and will be closed Sept 1 giving interested parties 90 days to submit a proposal to the city The city has traditionally contracted with the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce for more than 30 years The contract is funded by almost 75 percent of the hotel tax revenue which yearly equals about The move to issue the RFP marks the first time the city has created the possibility for companies other than the chamber to compete for the contract A committee made up of the city manager city

increased salary totaling for City Manager Mike Shands The amount marks about a pay increase for Shands who council members pointed out did hot receive a costofliving raise or a raise during last Decembers pay increases for city staff Shands who has been city manager for about two and a half years was being paid the lowest salary for his position among cities roughly the size of New Bruanfels

told council the playscape was plannedfor construction inside the pool area because pool fees are help ing to pay for the playscape It would be more fun for the kids Put it where the money came from It gives children an opportunity to play in the pool and then also on the She also said that the playscape which is between 65 and 75 feet long would duplicate existing playscapes within the park but
