Reading Room in June to house the adult andjuvenile probation depajtrnents Jack Williamson office supervisor for Community Supervision and Cor rections Department said the new offices will provide muchneeded room and the opportunity for expansion He said changes in state laws and the requirement that more individuals be given probation has resulted in a ing need for services and personnel Williamson said he currently has two staff members that do not have an office and muit work in any available space they can find If we have staff that is sick they use their offices or use the courtrooms when theyre not being said Williamson So were kind of on top of each other right Juvenile probation will share the new building and director Carol Robi the extra space will be appre ciated by her office as well We have two officers sharing an office right said Robison Our hallways are lined with boxes so the storage space will be nice The building is slated for substantial completion by Feb 28 and the two probation departments plan to move in March Robison said her department plans to move the week of March 11 and Williamson said he is planning on March 19 Both said the move will take a couple of days and arrange ments will be made to minimize the inconvenience to clients It shouldnt inconvenience anyone too said Robison except for Once the two probation departments move to the new building Krai said the space in the old courthouse will be used to alleviate crowding in other offices Krai said the Justice of the Peace Precinct I and the county clerks offices will expand into the offices freed up by the move We are rubbing elbows and sitting on top of each said County Clerk Joy Streater We dont even have room to work in our offices right Streater said she is expecting to move into the space 30 days to six weeks after the probation departments move Krai said construction of the building is expected to cost approximately The money to pay for the building will come

busi nesses directly and indirectly affected by release flows from Canyon Lake agree on one thing The rules must be changed That was the sentiment expressed at a meeting sponsored by the Govern mental Affairs Committee of the Comal County Water Oriented Recre ation District on Tuesday night at the Restaurant at Gniene Mansion Inn In order to keep going we need flexibility in the Ernest Pavlock owner of the Hitching Post Feed Store in Sattler said The only thing they GuadalupeBlanco River Authority take into consideration is flood control The economy has developed around here That hai not

Michael Meek Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce President Ed Wctzel County Com missioner Jack Dawson and Jerry Brite Canyon Lake manager for the Army Corps of Engineers Campgrounds lodges Guadalupe River outfitters and commercial busi nesses were all represented Pavlock said even though his is not a water oriented business sales went down by 10 percent during last years drought because people from Houston and Dallas who vacation at the lake did not come in droves in 1996 Pavlock said GBR A and the Coips of Engineers should find a way to release the water not at a certain level in the lake but when it is needed When we get rain hold it for a lit tle while and then release he said It should be a slow gradual recess and it should be done on the week GBRA releases water below the 909 feet conservation pool level The Corps of Engineers is in charge of water that goes above that stage The people at the meeting divided into small groups according to their business After almost an hour of dis cussions the small groups came up with the four issues of greatest con cern Those issues were 1 water point of sell level of flexibility 2 economic impact and water 3 securi enforcement safety and
