consider a recommendation to seek bids for financial advisory services and bond counsel for the first time at its regular meeting Monday Floyd Westerman of Southwest Securities has secured the citys financial advisory services contract for more than 30 years and hired his own legal help when issuing bonds for the city City Attorney Jacqueline Cullom said That created an apparent conflict of interest last March when New Braunfels Utilities sought council approval for million of bonds W Jeffrey Kuhn of Fulbright Jaworski represented both the city and the seller of the bonds in the transaction NBU General Manager Paula DiFonzo said Westerman has a three year contract with NBU to provide general services as needed DiFonzo said NBU is not prepared to develop policy on bond counsel since it does not have plans to issue bonds in the near future Westerman who also provides financial services for Comal County and the two local school districts said Friday he intends on submitting a bid for the citys bonds but said What difference does it make When asked whether he planned on attending the Monday council meeting he responded I wasnt Cullom said she is making the recommendation so

charges against the husband This avoids domestic violence cases that are dropped after many hours of investi gation and research because the spouse is either coerced or harassed by the man to drop the
