traffic woes Plan results after holiday crowds led to congestion By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer Union Avenue will be closed from Garden Street to Mather Street Garden Street will be closed from Comal Avenue to the tube exit Tens of thousands of tubers and tourists swamped the Comal River on the Fourth of July weekend causing traffic problems and congestion Consequently the city developed a plan of street clo sures around the tube chute to make traffic flow smoothly on the weekends City Manager Mike Shands said Shands said the plan was put into effect last Sunday after heavy traffic congestion backlogged people tubers and residents trying to get to and from their homes condos and neighborhoods along Union Avenue Beginning 1 Saturday Union Avenue was closed from Garden Street to Mather Street and Garden Street was closed from Comal Avenue to the tube exit There will be New Braunfels police officers at each barricade closing People who live or are visiting those in the affected areas will be allowed to go through Shands said He said the reason for the traffic jam was that outfitters did not expect so many thousands of people even for a Fourth of July weekend we were certainly prepared for the crowds on the Fourth of July it was a surprise to the outfitters how many people came to the Guadalupe and then were transported to the Shands explained The Guadalupe River has been too high for tubing because the Army Corps of Engi neers is releasing more than cubic feet per second of water from Canyon Dam The corps is releasing the extra water so Canyon Lake will recede to its normal level of 909 feet above sea level Saturday the lake level was 930 feet above sea level Turn to Traffic Page 3A City council meets Monday New Braunfels City Council will consider traffic control signs on Basel Street and a rec ommendation for holiday lighting when it meets at Monday at the municipal build ing 424 S Castell Ave Other agenda items include rezoning of land near FarmtoMarket 725

insignificant By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer Comal Independent School District pays its teachers slightly below the state average in most areas according to a salary study conducted by Texas Association of School Boards According to that report the CISD teacher salaries were paid 2 to 9 percent below the market average Paul Robin senior compensation con sultant for TASB said a 20 percent dif ference would have been viewed as a significant and CISD was well above that mark Overall the district paid less than the market value for Robin said But for the most part theyre not var Based on the findings of the study Robin said TASB had two basic recom mendations 1 a 4 percent pay increase at the mid point for all positions except teach ers and 2 a 7 percent increase for teachers Robin said the larger increase is needed for teachers to meet state requirements and will equal about a year for the average teacher Its not to position the district to be higher than the market but to position it to be competitive with the Robin said Board president Dan Krueger said the study was conducted to tell the board how the district compares to other districts As a whole it made me feel good because we werent far off from being in line with other he said Thats good CISD superintendent Jerry Major said There wasnt a surprise there The district has been slightly below market at least Turn to CISD Page
