outfitter regulation ordinance By ABE LEVY Staff Writer The New Braunfels City Council on Monday rejected a proposed ordinance that would have regulated outfitters on the Guadalupe River The proposal was offered as an attempt to satisfy an agreement by plaintiffs who filed a wrongful death lawsuit a few years ago The city settled with the plaintiffs in November and gave itself a Memo rial Day deadline to implement the measure The council opted instead to adopt a plan to post safety signs by Memorial Day It also voted to create an implemen tation committee that would pursue a proposed interlocal agreement with outfitters outside the city limits The councils action removed such items as a mandatory video presenta tion and rules for wearing life jackets in a move to avoid placing too many restrictions on outfitters Council members and outfitters said they preferred an interlocal agreement with the Water Oriented Recreation District and Comal County in a plan that would unify regulations on the river Zero Rivers a local outfitter said he was glad the city rejected the origi nal proposal to avoid unfair restric tions on his industry I really applaud the city for trying to make the Guadalupe River safer but I also am glad they trust the outfitters to do the right he said Cancer fundraiser HeraldZeitung photo by Tom Erickson ri Mission Drive Roland Bradfutes uncle
