New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 14, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas 2A fl HeraldZeltung g Friday February County to put inmates to work By DEMISE DZIUK Staff Writer Comal County will kick off a pilot program in the next few weeks that will take inmates from the county jail and put them to work Sheriff Bob Holder said Thursday that Comal County will implement a 30day pilot program to test the feasibility and effectiveness of using jail inmates for work in the county There are a lot of things they could said Holder We just want to use the manpower that is actually over there Quite frankly theres a lot of talent out During the trial period the inmates dressed in standard orange jumpsuits will be primarily used for the rural recycling program to help sort and bale material at the road department Its just a matter of getting it said County Commissioner Moe Schwab Its strictly a 30day trial program think its a step in the right Holder said a survey was sent to the inmates to see how many would be interested in volunteering for this type of program and 15 have already volunteered He said those used in the program will be lowrisk individuals such as inmates serving time for drunken driving and hot checks He said he is not sure if the inmates will have on restraints when they are working outside of the jail but they will be available in case any incidents occur He said other counties have certified individuals as jailers to oversee the work crews but these individuals are not allowed to be armed He said the Comal County program will use an armed deputy for every six inmates I dont want to send workers out of our facilitywith people thatare not be said Holder Tvedecided against using certified Holder said the use of deputies could require additional personnel and part of the pilot program will include determining if additional deputies are needed and what funds are available If this thing proves feasible we could expand it to other areas such as the road said Holder County Judge Carter Castcel said the program allows inmates to get out of the jail for the day and at the same time accomplish work in the county They dont have to sit there and watch television all said Casteel They can get up and work and quite frankly thats what a lot of them would want to Sherry Clarkson executive assistant for commissioner court who helps with the niral recycling program said three or four inmates will be used a day for the program and they will go straight to the road department and straight Airline pilots continue deadlock WASHINGTON AP American

Historic Landmark Commission tabled a proposal to provide tax relief to property owners who make improvements on buildings with historical designations at its regular meeting Thursday Commission members said they wanted more information from City Planning Director Harry Bennett on the proposal including examples of how a person would take advantage of the plan Bennett said at the next regular meeting set for March 13 he will provide members with scenarios of the proposal one in which an owner makes small improvements to a property and one in which high dollar improvements are made If the commission approves the plan it will be presented to the city council for consideration in early April for three readings If the council approves the measure in three readings people would be able to benefit from the plan as early as midMay or any time after the ordinance takes effect The plan would allow owners to subtract the value of the improvements from next years appraised value as long as the result is not below the current value The discount would be offered for five years and renewable for a maximum of 10 years and the improvements would have to be at least 10 percent of the current property value City officials and commission members said they believe the plan would encourage property owners to apply for historical designations and then make improvements that would help the
