and developing proposals the Comal County Commissioners Court voted unanimously Thursday to adopt a program to transport area veterans lo VA medical facilities through the Alamo Coordinated Transit System All were saying is it sounds like a good idea and lets move it one more step said County Judge Carter Casteel Comal County veterans service offi cer Cms Culwell said he met with a representative from lie Community Council of South Central Texas which runs the existing ACT service I le said three options surfaced the county could use the existing system at a cost of a rider form an agreement for sole use of a van for per person or a mile Under the third scenario a trip to San Antonio would cost and a trip lo Keirville SI00 regardless of the number or riders Thats what Im recommending to the said Culwell That we look real strongly at he dollaramilc Casleel said she would also like lo see a nominal fee charged for those veterans who can afford lo pay I dont think its fair for the coun ty lo pay my way to San Antonio because I can pay for said Casleel Mul I do think its fair to ask for payment for a veteran who cant afford Under the permile option if 10 vet erans participate and live of those can pay a fee the cost would be a day During a month this would equate to compared lo for maintenance and a driver if the county purchased a van Culwell said if he van is not needed every day it would not have to be used The agree ment would allow the county lo use a van on random days as long as 24 Turn to Veterans Page 2A Bridge area in WORDS future By DAVID DEKUNDER

construction cycle con struction would start during the late full winter 1997 or spring of The pedestrian bridge project has been talked about for three years now Its original cost was That cost
