In exchange, the trout group agreed to drop its contested case hearing against the GERA permit amendment request, GBRA also will pay $75,000 for withdrawing from the hearing, which was scheduled for Thursday. Wickman said, “Our goal is not to sue everybody, but this gives us an avenue to pursue to continue to raise public consciousness.” The Friends contend GBRA violated meeting posting requirements under the Texas Open Meetings Act when, on Aug. 20, 1997, the GBRA board of directors allegedly authorized its general manager, Bill West, to submit the permit amendment application to TNRCC. The group also claims GBRA failed to comply with state law by applying for a permit to transfer water from one river basin to another without conducting any investigation. The group also contends TNRCC did not provide adequate or required notice of the application and that GBRA’s application was incomplete. West denied the allegations made by Friends of Canyon Lake. Wickman said he spoke with Joe Morris, staff member to Sen. Jeff Wentworth, on Wednesday to solicit the senator’s help. “I wasn’t able to convince him our needs are more important than developers’ (needs),” he said. Wickman previously had written the senator to address his group’s plight but did not receive a favorable response. “Everybody’s got their eyes on Canyon Lake. We’re going to dry up and blow away up here,” he said. WARNING/From 1A for its message to reach each 1,000 households in the area, Edgett told commissioners. A serious and ongoing shortcoming in local emergency management that was identified after the 1972 flood was that there was no effective way to warn people of the imminent flood danger once it was identified. Even going into the 1998 flood and beyond, nothing had been accomplished in that vein, Edgett said. In New Braunfels, officials have looked at a siren system and other options, but haven’t adopted an early warning system yet. Edgett wants to get it done at the county level — and thinks the system is very cost-effective and could be interlinked with other ones like it in neighboring counties to protect the Guadalupe River watershed. It is a more flexible system, which requires less maintenance, and provides better advance warning, Edgett said. She told commissioners at court Thursday morning that the system could be put in place for around $26,000 and would then be maintained by its vendor for $6,000 a year — about $500 a month. The real beauty of the system is in its versatility, Edgett said. “This has so many applications. This kind of system is very affordable, and solves so many problems for us,” she said. Say a localized storm closes low water crossings on FM 1863. A dispatcher could use the system by drawing a circle around the affected neighborhood, recording a message and then sending it to the affected households. In a case where a child or a dementia patient wanders off or is lost, everyone in a neighborhood can be quickly notified to help in a search. “Many pairs of eyes are better than just a few,” Edgett said. Another possible application could be in crime prevention. “If a neighborhood is being especially hard hit by burglars, we can let them know and maybe convince people to lock their doors,” Edgett said. Also, anyone who felt the system was a nuisance or didn’t want to be contacted could have their telephone number deleted from its database. Corpus Christi and Amarillo now use systems similar to three Edgett has looked at, and systems are coming in San Antonio and elsewhere in the area, Edgett said. Guadalupe County is working on funding its own in the wake of the flood of 1998. County Judge Danny Scheel directed Edgett to continue researching the systems and to bring him a proposal. But he said there could be no question the county is enthusiastic about the idea of installing a warning system. He was just cautious about money, he said. “I’m just concerned that getting all of this for $26,000 sounds too good to be true,” Scheel said. “If something sounds too good to be true it usually is. I don’t want to be stuck with a system that costs $15,000 a month to operate.” Edgett assured him it would cost only $500 a month. County Engineer Tom Hornseth said stream flow and rainfall gauges that now feed information to the Guadalupe-Bianco River Authority and other data terminals — including one located in the sheriff’s office — could be connected to the system to automatically warn residents potentially threatened by rain or flooding events. ‘Tb me, this would be a first step. With all the data available, we can predict stream flows a couple of hours in advance. This is really a good thing and something we need to look at,” Hornseth said. Subscribe to the Herald-Zeitung.

Mayor Stoney Williams said Tamayo was selected because of his experience. “Since he retired, he’s also served as interim city manager for other cities who were looking for a full-time replacement,” he said. “He was the only person we decided to interview.” Shands said he was pleased the council allowed him to leave the city’s employ. “I told them I was ready,” he said. “And I’m extremely pleased that they were so gracious.” Shands served under Tamayo as assistant city manager. “He’s extremely familiar with the city,” he said. “He FIRE/From 1A knows some of the department heads and most of the employees. He lives here and is familiar with what’s going on in the city. He was with the city for more than 20 years.” Tamayo is the only interim city manager scheduled to be interviewed by council. The interview is scheduled to take place in closed session on Monday. Also Wednesday, council discussed the hiring process for a full-time city manager. In open session, council voted to send a request for proposals for consulting firms who specialize in finding replacements for high-level positions. The firm will perform the search, gather resumes and select appropriate candidates for city council to interview. concern. We’re proceeding with caution.” Workers are forced by the discovery to wear respirators, which further slow work, Richter said. “It makes you hotter and slows you down. You have to break more often,” he said. Throughout Thursday and today, crews with Tfexas Crane of San Antonio are continuing to work with a clamshell mounted on a 200 foot boom to remove the roof and other debris. Richter said investigators had still found no sign by Thursday evening that the fire was intentionally set or suspicious, but they still hadn’t determined what caused it. The Seguin Fire Department and seven other departments, including New Braunfels, fought the fire, which was discovered at 4:40 a.m. Tuesday. CONSTRUCTION/From 1A completed past FM 725.
