Pospisil discovered the funds after Mufioz-Gill reminded her last month to check on it. The 4A fund was the city’s economic development account fed by sales tax dollars. The 4A program was replaced with the city’s 4B board. When New Braunfels voters decided to eliminate the fund in 2001, the funds were split equally among Districts I, 3, j and 6.

By Dylan Jimdnoz Staff Writer New Braunfels high school graduates no longer have to leave home to begin their college careers. They don’t even have to commute in the region. Colleges and universities are bringing their services here. Beginning this spring, the University of the Incarnate Word will offer a college program from a satellite office at the Scooter Store in New Braunfels. The university has been recruiting in the area since the summer. “We’ve had a very good response,” said Vince Porter, UIW dean of the extended studies school. Forty people have signed up for the program’s four courses in the spring. “It’s a small start, but we have to shewed New Braunfels needed more start somewhere," Porter said.    post-secondary education opportu- There is a definite market in the nities, although several higher edu-New Braunfels area for higher edu-    cation institutions are nearby, cation opportunities.    UIW    hopes to help fill that need, The city's comprehensive plan    Porter said.

Page 3A GBRA-Bulverde water project on track $50 million pipeline continues despite federal lawsuit; water on tap by spring ’05 By Ron Malonoy Staff Writer BULVERDE—The Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority is on schedule for its $50 million project to bring Canyon Lake water to Bulverde in 2005 — despite a lawsuit that could delay ft. GBRA trustees heard a progress report on the project Wednesday and authorized General Manager Bill West to assist the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in a federal lawsuit filed in October by Friends of Canyon Lake. Bulverde Mayor Bill Cole said it was “excellent news" that the pipeline could bring water to his community beginning early in 2005. “I’m very happy with the progress they have made so far," Cole said. FOOL, which lost state court cases that dis puted a state permit that would allow GBRA to draw more water from the lake, has sued in federal court alleging the Corps of Engineers did not conduct necessary environmental impact studies before approving the plan. The suit seeks to have the studies conducted and halt work on the project. West said during a break in the meeting that GBRA would offer legal assistance to the the corps.    x “The corps is well represented by federal attorneys,” West said. “Our attorneys will offer support if needed." Project Manager David Welsch and consultant Jonathan Pressman briefed the GBRA on progress of the project. PrHr r *• 1 k Bill West An underground pipeline would follow FM 3159 to Texas 46. The pipeline would split near U.S. 281, providing water for Bulverde, Fair Oaks Ranch, Boerne and other users — including the San Antonio Water System, which is helping finance the project. As demand increases in western Comal County, water being supplied to San Antonio would be reduced for use here under an escalating pricing arrangement with San Antonio. Welsch reported everything is on track. GBRA hopes to put construction out for bid early in 2004 and award the contracts by March or April. "We're pretty good on schedule for surveying and right-of-way acquisition," Welsch said.UPDATES Tracking the news PARKS DIRECTOR LAST WE KNEW: The city hired a consultant in September to recruit a new parks director to replace fired Parks Director Iris Neffendorf.
