makes pitch to keep 210 area code By ABE LEVY Staff Writer In an 1 Ithhoqr plea to the Public Utility Com mission Comal County Judge Carter Casteel asked the threemember board to keep the county within the 210 area code as the board tries to compensate for the boom in telecommunications The PUC will consider Thursday a request by a working group of industry professionals and experts to retain the 210 area code for the San Antonio area and create two new zones to the south and north including Comal and Guadalupe counties The 210 designation was introduced in 1992 and was a change from the former 512 area code The additional change is needed to account for the grow ing number of pagers cellular phones fax machines and residential and commercial requests for extra lines proponents of the change said Casteel sent a letter to the PUC Monday in which she said Comal County would prefer to retain the current area code since it was only a short time ago that we were changed to the 210 area However Casteel said she understands the Antonio area has a higher population I understand that as we grow weve got to have more numbers but 1 still wish that we didnt have do Casteel said Its going to come and people are not going to be happy People including myself have a difficulty with change Unfortunately itll be the second time for Comal The commission is expected to approve the area code recommendation Thursday but officials said the number of the new area code will not be determined until early next year Phone users will be given about a sixmonth grace period before the new area code will become the official designation Popes change of heart on evolution troubles columnist See Opinion Page 4A w
