power to regulate how and where animals including potentially deadly ones are raised in the county County Attorney Nathan Rheinlander said last week that the county is experiencing problems with residents in subdivisions raising exotic ani mals Rheinlander said current law did not empower the county to regulate these types of activities Rheinlander said he considered asking the Leg islature to expand the population requirements on the Health and Safety Code as it pertains to animal shelters but he said that would only cover unwant ed or impounded animals So that being the case wed have to go to some other source of legislation for situations where it is a breeding facility or commercial ven Rheinlander said In order to address both types of situations Rheinlander asked the court to approve a resolution asking for the population cap to be removed from the Health and Safety code and for a kennel law to be sought The resolution which was unanimously approved by the court will be sent to the Texas Association of Counties and the Conference of Urban Counties to include in their 1997 legislative package Rheinlander said kennel laws were sought about four years ago without much luck Generally speaking though the Legislature has been less than generous with the regulatory power it has allowed the counties in many Rheinlander said highway HeraldZeltung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL

water than consumers in San Antonio using the same water That is the conclusion of an analysis the TransTexas Policy Man agement Committee of the West Cen tral Study Area The analysis is part of a report issued by the committee The TransTexas Water Program is a statewide study funded by the Texas Water Development Board The ongo ing study is being done in five phases in three study areas across the state Comal County and San Antonio are in the West Central Study Area Steve Raabc project manager for the TransTexas Water Program said the cost analysis was based on pro posed plans by the GuadalupeBlanco River Authority to build an 8 million gallon per day water treatment plant at Canyon Lake a 15mile transmission line connecting the lake to Bulverde and eventually Bexar County The
