crime and drug prevention awareness safety and neighborhood unity for all citizens And youd better believe the SALT Triad will be there too This information is being published now because all neighborhoods need time to plan Annually the best National Night Out programs are those that get an early start According to Don Ferguson of New Braunfels Safe City Commission the Give Neighborhood Crime and Drugs a Going Away Party theme is continuing this year based on its success and popularity The hope is Marie Dawson that the theme will be helpful in motivating all members of a neighborhood to get out and get involved in the National Night Out campaign Theme art is encouraged in developing flyers posters and related announcements Don has asked that you please keep his office posted on your plans as they develop and if you have questions or need assistance please feel free to call 6082100 Ext 18 Block parties outdoor lighting demonstration sites police officer visits to neighborhoods anticrime and drug rallies ice cream socials McGruff visits and caravans through neighborhoods are only a few suggestions to help you get started on your neighborhood project Be as creative as you like Don says that often off the wall ideas turn out to be brilliant promotions Involve everyone you can groups individuals politicians officials businesses organizations etc There is no question this year that the Sheriffs Department and the Police Departments will be involved They always are involved in National Night Out but this year especially so because of the newly formed Triad Also we want to encourage residents throughout the city and county to show support for crime prevention by lighting up their homes on August 5 1997 It could become a habit and help reduce crime all the year round The proper uses of energyefficient outdoor security lighting will be extremely economical just pennies Lighted homes businesses and streets deter crime and drug activity as well as other related dark night activities So remember Lights On Means Lights Out for The Plan Choose a site that is easily accessible for neighbors Yards streets and clubhouses are great sites for block parties The suggested time is 7 to 9 but you may tailor the event to best accommodate your neighborhood Plan games like cakewalks and musical or you may wish to have a speaker or a band to entertain people attending the block party Give neighbors plenty of early notice using flyers door hangers newsletter etc Reminder calls or notices are recommended just before the gathering Remind residents to bring lawn chairs and make sure you have plenty of beverages on hand for the party such as water and soft drinks you may want to provide name tags Thats one good way to help the neighbors get to know each other Please notify the City Managers office about your party plans The New Braunfels Safe City Commission will visit each block party and present an award to the best gathering on the day following the National Night Out Also please inform the City Managers office if you need a street closed for a block party 6082100 Ext 18 The County and City need the support cooperation and creative expression of every citizen of Comal County to participate in this extremely valuable and worthwhile event We are all the sponsors the participants and the recipients It costs nothing no fundraising just a simple caring for your fellow man Marie Dawson writes a weekly column about issues relating to senior Portable potty problem resolved Developer residents reach agreement By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer After Comal County Commissioners approved pursuing a lawsuit against parties involved in an illegal subdivision in the county parties involved agreed on i solution The problem arose when Rolartlo and Ramona Gomez applied fcr a septic permit in March for theiniew home in Park Lane Estatesdear Garden Ridge According to cjunty officials developer William Sutton apparently did not plat the property and the lot the Gomez family purchased failed to requirements f The county requires property to have a 40foot easemeit giving access to the property fron a public road The Gomez propeity must be reached by a 30foot strip that crosses a neighbors property The county initially denied the permit request forcing the homeowners to a portable restroom The court approved letting the Gomezes use septic tank while attorneys representing the parties tried to rammer out a solution Possible solution were presented but all parties woald not agree to them The holding tank permit was extended severil times while negotiations contiiued On Thursday attorneys representing the Gomez family and bought and have the same problem told commissioners court that they still had not reached an agreement Suttons attorney Harry Adams said his client did not want to sign the agreement because of requirements that would leave his client at risk for future legal action The attorney for the Gomezes did not want to give up that right Thats the one sticking point we said Brent Free attorney for the property owners I think the purpose of Commissioners Court today is to resolve the problem between the property and the platting The court voted 32 to grant the septic tank permit and pursue legal action Commissioner Danny Scheel who voted against it said granting the permit would remove the pressure to bring the property into compliance He also said the Gomez family was taking advantage of the situation to personally benefit I feel what was once a victim situation Gomez turned around and was trying to use Commissioners Court to feather his he said Once the vote was taken the attorneys went into the hall to work on an agreement and finally reached one Im satisfied and I think the parties are said County Judge Carter Casteel Actually what happened is what should have first According to the agreement Sutton would provide appropriate accesses at a cost of about and plat the new lots In addition Sutton Gomez and the other property owner all would be released from claims against each other and their attorneys I think its fair to all said Adams Rolando Gomez called the entire ordeal 94 days of He said he now would consider legal action against other parities involved in the original subdivision It just should have never happened because all these people were he said Casteel said others can learn from this experience This surely should be a lesson for those people who want to subdivide to please follow the countys Casteel If the items outlined in the signed agreement are followed and a plat is submitted to said the county should not havenrb take any legal action in the matter Centex four test value everyday Copy Paper is always on SALE 154 S Business
