New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 22, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas Q HeraldZetfung p Friday August County Obituary From Page 1 agree with Dawsons idea to take additional funds from the fund reserve He said those funds were for emergencies and he would rather add the positions later in the year when the court had a better idea of what the countys income would be I dont like to roll dice particularly when its with taxpayers he said I like to know what I have in the bank and what I will have in the bank at the end of the The approved budget includes a 3 percent cost of living and a 4 percent merit raise for employees Department heads and elected officials would receive 5 percent pay increases Two key cuts in budget requests were for the sheriffs office and the criminal district attorneys office The sheriff requested 10 additional patrol deputies but only five were included in the proposed budget The district attorney asked that a new position be created to replace the Rodriguez prom Page 1 The transition from a 10year career in the state legislature to Congress has been tricky Rodriguez said He was appointed to serve on the National Security Committee and the Veterans Affairs Committee but still has been seen as a freshman he said Of the 434 congressmen theres Pool county attorney position which becomes defunct when the county and district attorney offices merge beginning Sept 1 Two residents spoke to commissioners during the morning session about the budget Resident S A Swenson questioned why the county needed to be in the business of owning parks The budget calls for for the purchase of land in the Solms area for the countys third park Swenson said the money could be better spent in other areas Rather than spending on a park Id rather see two more he told the court Commissioners responded by saying the parks were wanted by many residents They also pointed out that lease agreements had been established with various organizations and the county was not paying for the development of the land Scheel said he supported spending money on the good kids because the county already spends a large amount of money on bad Icids through the probation office I think the more we keep these kids involved in sports and related activities the better off well be in the long Scheel said Swenson said he did not support percentage pay raises because everyone gets a different amount He said all employees and elected officials should get the same amount He said the mileage allowances also seemed excessive Tony Trungale who volunteers in the district attorneys office asked the court to explain why the chief misdemeanor prosecutor position which would have replaced the county attorney position was cut from the budget He predicted the decision would lead to a backlog in the docket and less efficiency int he office County Judge Carter Casteel said the cut was made because promised savings were not evident in the budget request She said the district attorney could return to the court and ask for another position later in the year if cases get too back logged The bottom line for me is promises made promises Casteel said Scheel said he did not agree with cutting the position He said the office needed the extra staff if it would be expected to maintain the work load With more cases being filed this year than last year I dont think its fair to ask Mr Dib Waldrip to perform under those he said Scheel was one of two commissioners voting against denying Waldrip the position a few weeks ago He voted in favor of the recommended budget for the office on Thursday Commissioner Cristina Zamora also voted against the original denial but voted in favor of the offices budget She said she still did not agree with it but the issue was settled with the first vote and she wanted to show her support of the budget I did want to vote for the budget because its good except for she said only one with less seniority than he said When they ask me to speak Im the last one they get The forum lasted for more than one hour and covered a range of topics Asked whether he would favor troops guarding the Texas border he responded It was an issue he said he always objected to and instead supported more border patrol officers who From Page 1 report said a new indoor swimming pool would cost million with an annual debt service of The report cites the example of San Antonio and the Alamo Community College District which share the cost and use of the pool at Palo Alto Community College Casteel said if the city of New Braunlels and the two school districts jumped on the indoor swimming pool bandwagon she could see the county helping to pay for it the county could float a bond issue to help pay for a pool She suggested forming a board with representatives from all interested parties Casteel said in that scenario the county could help pay off the debt while the city of New Braunfels and the two school districts could split the cost of operating the facility We all need to be partners in she said No one at the meeting spoke in opposition against the indoor pool After the meeting Casteel said residents would give the final nod to building an indoor pool We have to get into the county and see if the citizens want she said Commissioners approved a rrtotioh appointing Commissioner Danny Scheel to look for a pool site if the project becomes a reality could become more in touch with the people in the region What we need is welltrained people to be able to look out for he said We need bright people to seek them He told the group that he was concerned about the future of Social Security that is scheduled to run out of money by 2012 Were going to have a problem with social security A lot of people dont have he said A union member from San Antonio asked him what he thought the impact would be of possible federal deregulation of the electricity industry Rodriguez told him he was concerned that residential customers
