BUDGET CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Unfunded mandates put dent in reserves “Cash wise, we’re OK,” she said. “And after the year-end adjustments are made for Dec. 31, 2004, then things won’t look as bad.” Ferrell said year-end adjustments were part of the accounting process required to prepare the year-end audited financial report. Lower than expected revenues also affected end of the year account balances. “The commissioners have worked really hard to be fis cally conservative,” she said. “But along with lower revenues, we could also be affected by what the Legislature does this session in regard to appraisal caps, and that's what really concerns if me. The county’s property tax rate for 2004 was 33.37 cents per $100 valuation. “The tax rate wasn’t increased in 2005,” Ferrell said. Precinct 3 Commissioner Greg Parker said most of the $800,000 approved by commissioners was for unfunded state programs. “The state pushed us a lot more than we anticipated,” he said.

Now we’re being kept in the dark about its results. What kind of message does that send?” Stockwell said while the district dodged, the group’s questions still remained. “Does the report show the system is flawed? If so, what steps are you taking to Fix it? Their response makes it look like they did discover the school has a problem and they are trying to hide it,” she said. Without giving any details, Reaves said the information was being used to develop a plan for improvement. Patton revealed Monday she had opened more spots in the district’s alternative education campus after completing her report. Campus Principal Deme-tria Cummins also has hosted two groups from the Texas Education Agency Region 13 office to look at the school’s behavioral issues. Analysis by itself is not enough, according to Stockwell. "When I was picking up my daughter from the middle school Friday, I saw a police officer busting a student with marijuana,” she said. “Things are not getting better.” “This is not acceptable at all. We were excited to hear something was being done to analyze this problem, something that's long overdue. Now we're being kept m the dark about its results. What kina of message does that send?'' — Liza Stockwell Member of parents group at New Braunfels Middle School In addition to fielding questions from frustrated parents, the district is facing a lawsuit over a two-year-old bullying incident at the school. Reaves admitted Friday the legal action was slowing down any efforts for improvement. “We could probably be doing a lot more with this situation, but the pending litigation is impeding our progress,” he said. While she was disheartened by the latest turn of events, Stockwell vowed her group would keep applying pressure until the middle school was as safe as every other NBISD campus. “We’ve received so many calls and e-mails from parents thanking us for what we’re doing,” she said. “We can’t let this turn into another attempt by the administration to sweep this problem under the rug.” DEVELOPER CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Company has history of fixing up buildings mill, where shipments of cotton cloth from West Texas are processed and shipped back to West Texas. At one time, the mill employed almost 900 people, and provided a livelihood for generations of New Braunfels families. Tolley said the 630,000 square-foot building presented a number of environmental issues, including lead and asbestos. “It’s a fantastic building,” he said. “But there are some issues that we’re trying to resolve. But we’ve dealt with those kinds of issues before. In fact, we cut our teeth on projects like this in downtown Los Angeles. We adapted a 1920s office building in Los Angeles to a mixed use project, and we’re working on our third project in Los Angeles.” Tolley said a similar adaptation project in New Braunfels was the LCRA building on Landa Street being developed by an Austin developer. “The LCRA project was the impetus for the Mission Valley Mill adaptation concept,” he said. “We’re very excited about the project because we love the Hill Country.” Asked if the project would require a partnership with the city, Tolley said it would depend on the cost. “We really don’t have a good handle on what the project is going to cost right now,” he said. “Wed like to have the Contributed photo The Oak Creek Senior Villas in Thousand Oaks, Calif., is one of many projects completed by Urban Pacific Builders. project stand on its own two legs, which won’t be easy to do, but we’d be open to any discussions with the city.” Tolley said the project did not include plans for a convention center or major hotel. "That's not to say there might not be a small boutique hotel,” he said. “But right now, we’re facing bigger issues like noise from the nearby railroad. “But the property isn’t really located in downtown New Braunfels, and I'd think that the residents of New Braunfels would want a new civic center or convention center in the downtown area.” Tolley said the company’s projects could be viewed at www.urbanpacificbui-lders.com.
