Corp and the city of San Marcos over a possible joint water transmission line will not affect the citys agreement with the GuadalupeBlanco River Authority concerning a regional water surface treatment plant GBRA General Manager Bill West said on Tuesday West said when he was asked whether San Marcos interests in possibly having CLWSC transfer acre feet of water from the nonprofit corporations proposed water treatment plant on the north side of the lake to a delivery point west of San Marcos on Ranch Road 12 would affect the citys current agreement with the river authority The CLWSC board of directors has plans to build the 4 million gallon per day treatment plant near the Canyon Lake Shores subdivision in 1998 If a pipeline should ever be built CLWSC General Man ager Dale Yates said after it left the plant it would likely fol low a route taking it alortg FM 306 and then along FM 32 into Hays County before reaching the delivery point on Ranch Road 12 Last week San Marcos City Manager Larry Gilley said Yates had approached him a few weeks ago about a joint venture in which both CLWSC and the city would each pay a share of the costs in constructing the water transmission line Gilley said the talks were extremely Through a contract with GBRA San Marcos has the rights to the acre feet of lake water San Marcos has recently signed an interlocal agreement with GBRA to develop a joint regional water surface treat ment plant that would bring water in from Canyon Lake Under this agreeent water from the lake would flow down the Guadalupe River to Lake Dunlap where a raw water intake and pipeline would be built by GBRA The Turn to Water Page 2A Trustees draw up their wish list for school chief By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer The New Braunfels Independent School District Board of Trustees began formulating a list of district goals to aid it in its superintendent search The board was given a list of 38 top ics various campuses and departments felt were important Trustees individually ranked the goals according to importance and those individual rankings were then combined to form a board ranking The top three goals according to the board as a whole were to narrow the gap between subgroups on lie Texas Assessment of Academic Skills tests to develop a plan to implement an appro priate bond program for renovations and remodeling and to develop a five year plan for technology equipment It sort of narrows our focus on what goals we as a board feel are impor said Dr Carlos Campos the boards vice president 1 think this will give us a good working start as we continue to look at The board has tentatively scheduled a meeting for Dec 17 to further discuss the goals Superintendent Charles Bradberry recommended that the board look at the top 20 goals and discuss them at that time Bradberry said after discussions the goals could then be ranked again to see if there are any changes Once the board has decided on the goals for dis trict that list will be used in the search for a replacement for Bradberry who plans to begin work with the Keller Independent School District on Jan 1 Bradberry said once his contract with KISD is signed and approved he will submit his resignation to the New Braunfels board for their approval To me this is a snapshot for some one coming in to look at ihe said trustee Bette Spain I think we need to know the timeline for achiev ing the goals and whdt these goals are before we go out looking for a super However despite the work that still lies ahead in forming the list trustees said the current list is

Campos said the discussion was held in executive session to protect the administrators as well as the board He said caution has to be used when talk ing about hiring individuals so no one is compromised Our superintendent has not yet ten dered his resignation so we have to be very careful with any talks we have about filling that Campos said After the board reconvened in open session the
