New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 23, 2000, New Braunfels, Texas Sunday April 23 2000 HERALDZRlTtJNf PageSA 1A infrastructure improvements such as streets and drainage rather than asking residents to support a bond election The proposed million budget includes spending on down town improvements and on media equipment and improvements for council chambers The public had no comment at the public hearing on the budget April 10 But an amendment by District 2 councilmen Larry Alexander to reduce the downtown budget to met opposition from both council members and local residents Why does downtown have a right to that money more than any other business Alexander said in making an amendment to cut downtown funding Bill Groff owner of Country Faire said They have a right to the money because they help gen erate the money We need to help improve what is there so we can collect more sales tax If you get more empty stores you wont have that sales A New Braunfels resident who did not identify himself said I am not a business owner but I am a cit izen who used downtown I came from a small town where the city did not pay attention to downtown and now my town doesnt have a downtown That could be the future of New Braunfels if we dont help Alexanders motion was voted down 1A MKT railroad to the west and the New Braunfels city limits just north of FarmtoMarket Road 306 According to maps the Hunnicutt residence falls within District 4 District 5 does include part of Gruene Road where it dead ends at North Verimendi Avenue and North Central Avenue District 5 also includes the Com mon Street area south of the Guadalupe River the area around McKenna Memorial Hospital neighborhoods between the Guadalupe River Post Road and Interstate 35 and the area east of I 35 around Canyon High School When contacted at home Friday Countys voter registrar Glo jjjjria Clennan said an error could have hibeen made when the voter regis Jjjtration cards were made tjj District boundaries often run streets and divide neighbor Shoods often making it difficult to into which district a res idence falls she said Officials could not determine Fri 3day whether the Hunnicutts lived win District 4 or 5 because city and county offices were closed But if there was an error on their voter registration cards Lee and Eva Hunnicutt said they are afraid they lost their right to vote in the candidate election because they already cast ballots in the bond elec tion And with a threeway candidate race every vote counts Lee Hun nicutt said A candidate must get more than 51 percent of the vote to win the election if not the top two candidates will face off in a runoff election Elizabeth Hanshaw director of the legal division of the Secretary of State Elections Division said whether the Hunnicutts could cast a ballot in the candidate election depended on what kind of system election officials used to keep track of who voted at the polls It depends on the process at the polling places and if they have a way of knowing which voters have voted in which election If not they have to go by the voters and the election workers memories but how can they know that the person didnt vote before she said Usu ally we tell people its too Clennan said the matter would be looked into Monday And she said she believed some thing could be worked out to allow the Hunnicutts and others who live in Districts 3 or 4 but might have misprints on their voter registration cards to vote in the candidate elec tions In the meantime both Hanshaw and Clennan advised local residents who suspect errors on their voter registration cards to wait and straighten the problem out before voting There is plenty of time If there is a problem they should come by the office and make sure theres not an error before Clennan said Hanshaw said My advice is if a voter goes to the polls and thinks he should be voting in a particular dis trict but is told otherwise he should give the bond ballot back make sure the elections official notes that he didnt vote and go back after getting it straightened 1A of What began for Catholic German immigrants in the mid1840s as a ilog
