14 member committee wrote a proposed ethics ordinance to clarify personal and business boundaries for city personnel But it fell to the wayside after council members arid citizens agreed the Wording was overly detailed and restrictive The issue will emerge once again when council members Monday night consid er appointing seven members to an ad hoc ethics committee charged with pro ducing a more palatable ethics ordinance I think we have a genuine interest in building and securing trust from the pub said Don Ferguson assistant to the city manager The goal is to come up with a very easytounderstand docu ment short and sim ment and volunteer eligibility and may require mandatory training for city employees Council mem bers hope to avoid the wordiness of the failed proposal Which read more like the card cata logue for the Library of Con gress than a usable code of ethics It was too said Mayor Jan Kennady who along with council man Paul Fraser was on council during consideration of the former ethics code It was trying to cover everything that could be covered My goal is to have some place to look at Former Councilman Dan Bremer raised the issue of an ethics ordinance three years ago of the committee from his or her district and the mayor will select one atlarge member Ferguson and City Attorney Jacque line Cullom Will arm the sevenmember committee with model ordinances from cities such as Dallas and Austin as well as research from national and state asso ciations such as the Texas Municipal League Committee members will follow an ambitious schedule of meetings twice a month to hand over a proposal for coun cil consideration in September The ordinance will cover such items as financial management outside employ ing what private interests conflict with public responsibility has been the crux of the debate I dont think itll be said Kennady in a telephone interview from Montgomery Ala It is to be a tool for the council when we have ques Kennady who initiated the new mea sure said the ethics code will solve whether council members may vote on items involving nonprofit boards that they themselves are serving on Kennady said currently no city code addresses this issue NBISD wont raise tax rate this year Rising property values mean more revenue By DEMISE DZIUK Staff Writer The board of trustees for the New Braunfels Independent School District has set the maximum tax rate it will con sider for the 199697 budget The public will have a chance for input at a public hearing scheduled for next week Lonnie Curtis assistant superinten dent of finance told the board the staff is working on a preliminary budget and the only remaining item to be added to the budget is teachers salaries We would like to ask you to set the maximum tax rate you would consider for the 199697 budget at he said Curtis told the board that although the rate is the same as it is this year it is considered an increase due to reap praisals Since property values increased in the last year the district would raise more money in taxes with the same rate as last year Curtis said Tuesdays vote does not mean the tax rate will be He said it simply means that is the highest the board can go when forming the budget He said the staff will work on reducing the rate The board unanimously approved the recommendation This does not set it at What it does is put a cap on what we can he said Were trying everything we can to get it down to lower than what we had this Curtis said it is likely that the final tax rate could be closer to However he said he requested the higher maxi mum to give them a little more flexi especially in trying to fit in rais es for teachers Because of reappraisals taxes on the average home would increase by or percent under the proposed rate Curtis said taxes for individual homeowners will increase at different rates depending on the change in the tax able value of their NBISD Superintendent Charles Brad berry said he is not concerned with plac ing a cap on the tax rate before complet ing a preliminary budget He said he believes it can be done within this rate and hopes the rate can even be reduced Were close enough to forming a budget that we know where we he said Our goal is to keep it the same or lower may not be able to do everything we wanted to but no one is able to do everything they would A public hearing on the proposed tax rate is set for 7 June 13 at the Edu cation Center on W Mill Street Final budget approval could come as early as June 17 Labor partner just wants to help his wife See Opinion Page 44
