Stanley and James were the only two who spoke to the court in opposition of the event while about six or seven other indivithials spoke in favor of it. In addition, two petitions with names of individuals and business owners supporting Ae triathlon were presented to the court. Steve Stigall,s president of the Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce in 1990, said the triathlon brings thousands of individuals to the Canyon Lake. In addition, the 1991 event was televised, bringing more attention to the area. He said this kind of exposure is good. "VK hen 2-3,000 people come to your town for the day, it’s got to make an impact on the economy,** Stigall said. “It’s Canyon Lake's opportunity to shine.” Other speakers said any inconvenience, whether to businesses or individuals, would be minimal. Ben Whitaker, who participates in the triathlon, said the same type of events are hosted in other communities, and residents just plan for it. He said prior to participating, he was one of the individuals stopped in his car, but it wasn’t an inconvenience for him. “I didn’t sit there and clench my fists,** Whitaker said. “Instead, I got out and whooped and hollered for those people riding their bikes up the hill.** County Judge Carter Casteel said she tended to support this type of activity, but she would like to find a way to “mesh” the interests of Ae citizens and the triathlon supporters. “I tend to favor economic development but not at the expense of our residents,” Casteel said. Commissioner Danny Sc heel said his first concern was the path for bicyclists. He said a route should be found where riders can use an improved shoulder. His other concern was that race sponsors be responsible for paying for law enforcement. Sheriff Bob Holder said he plans to have that same discussion wiA Owen. Casteel said a meeting will be conducted this coming week with various parties involved to see if a suitable solution could be reached. She said the topic also will be put back on the May 29 commissioner court agenda for action regarding law enforcement and road closures.
