law enforcement Schools state talk traffic concerns HEALTH EXPO f he Wealth Wellness Expo will take place from 8 to 11 Tuesday at the New Braunfels Civic Center BY HEATHER TODD Staff Writer State legislators and officials with the Texas Department of Transportation introduced a new program Tuesday night designed to improve traffic safety in and around local school zones John P Kelly district engineer with the TxDOT office in San Antonio said the initiative called Precious Cargo would enhance school traffic safety through better planning and communication between TxDOT and local com munities Kelly said the goal was to encourage local school districts and transportation officials to work together in the early stages of school design and construction Its more effective and less expensive to prevent traffic safety problems rather than f ix them after the he said Kelly introduced the program to a handful of San Antonio area gov ernment and school district leaders Tuesday night including Comal County Judge Danny Scheel Comal County Commissioner Jay Millikin and Comal Independent School District Superintendent Jerry Major Tuesdays meeting cohosted by State Sen Jeff Wentworth and State Rep Edmund Kuempel was the third in a series of meeting this month in the South Texas area Kelly said the new program was developed in response to dramatic growth in the San Antonio area especially in rural and suburban areas Statistics provided by TxDOT indicate the population of Comal County has grown from in 1990 to in 1998 or a 40 percent increase The number of students enrolled in schools in Comal County increased from in 199091 to in 199798 or a 42 per cent increase Rapid growth has forced com munities to build more schools especially in rural areas and has increased the amount of traffic on local highways Kelly said This creates more traffic on highways that were once remote rural1 antf cYeates great potential for more crashes he said Kelly also said schools built in rural areas often created dangerous situations because nearby high speed roadways were not designed to carry the higher volumes of traf fic associated with schools Kelly said the solution to traffic problems near schools was to get transportation officials involved in the school planning process as early as possible The program works in three Kelly said By TxDOT and each community doing the best that they can then combining our efforts to do what we cant do As part of TxDOTs role in the Precious Cargo program Kelly said transportation officials would offer their expertise to local school districts Kelly also said TxDOT would provide designs for coordinating traffic flow near schools The community can help enhance traffic safety by reinforc ing the communitys presence and posting civic pride or highway signs he said TxDOT officials also said con sistent enforcement of traffic laws by local law enforcement was a necessary part of traffic safety By working together TxDOT and local communities could share construction materials labor and materials for projects Kelly said Council approves contracting with Comal County BY RON MALONEY HeraldZeitung Correspondent BULVERDE City council members voted unanimously to authorize Mayor Bob Barton to negotiate interlocal agreements with Comal County for law enforcement and animal control Council also authorized Barton to explore the possibility of creat ing the position of health officer for the city An effort to increase law enforcement coverage with the county began about three months ago The need for increased animal control protection became part of the debate earlier this month after a womans dog was attacked by two Rottweilers As in other communities county sheriffs deputies only provide enforcement of state laws in the unincorporated areas of Bulverde Barton told aldermen at the Jan 11 council meeting that Comal County Sheriff Bob Holder had told him it would cost about per hour to have a deputy and patrol car dedicated to Bulverde We could get a patrolman assigned to Bulverde if we want to go that Barton said at the council meeting Monday We dont have too many ordi nances to said Barton Sheriff Holder seemed to think that if all we needed was traffic enforcement we probably did not need much more But concerns raised by Bulverde residents and aldermen concerning loose animals and vandalism means that the city probably will need to enter an interlocal agree ment to hire the services of the sheriffs department Alderman Rick Gravens made a motion that Barton enter into an agreement with the county at his discretion and bring it before aldermen for review at their next LACKS Super Savings SALE asst Entire stock of Broyhill Sale Priced Casual Sofa by Broyhill Covered in a beautiful
