Residents are encouraged to attend and participate in the meeting, whic h will be 6 p.m. Tuesday at Landa Haus in Landa Park. The city, in cooperation with New Braunfels Utilities, Guadalupe-Bianco River Authority and the Edwards Aquifer Authority, hiren Espey Consultants to evaluate the feasibility of providing reclaimed water for irrigation of a portion of the city's parks. The purpose of developing a reclaimed water system is to enhance tne regional and local appeal of the city's parklands and to preserve limited water resources to serve the growing population. Of the 1 city's total park area, the study examined a total of 172.8 acres of parkland that is irrigated or will be irrigated in the future. Locations included: Landa Park; Hinman Island; Prince Solms Park; Camp Comal; Fischer Park; HEB Soccer Complex; Walnut Avenue; Fredericksburg Fields; and a portion of Landa Rirk Golf Course. The city received a Regional Water and Wastewater Planning Grant from the Texas Water Development Board to aid in funding the study. "Reclaimed (or reuse) water is municipal wastewater that has been treated to a quality that is suitable for beneficial uses that include irrigation of landscaping, crops and athletic fields," said Stacey Dicke, Parks and Recreation director. "A reclaimed water system would be espec ially valuable in meeting peak water demands during drought conditions and during periods of water usage restrictions." A copy of the study is available for review at New Braunfels Public Library. For information, call (830) 221-4350. NAVIGATING THE SYSTEM HOW DO I GET SOMETHING ON THE NEW BRAUNFELS CITY COUNCIL AGENDA? IF I WANT TO GET AN ORDINANCE CHANGED. WHAT IS THE PROCESS? There are multiple ways to change local laws. However, citizens do not directly place items on the agenda. Citizens may speak with the mayor or a city council member to discuss any issue. A member of city council can place an item to be on a council agenda. Citizens may work with a city board or commission on a topic per the board's bylaws, and that issue may or may not be recommended to city council. Citizens may come speak to the council during the "Citizens' Communications" portion of a city council meeting. Such public input may bring the council's attention to a local issue. The city's charter may also be changed. This form of change is less frequent and must comply with local and state laws regarding the amendment of charters. — City Secretary Patrick Aten Have a question about city or county government?
