County recycling effort gets boost with $79,000 grant from AACOG
By DENISE DZIUK
The Rural Recycling Program got another boost recently when County Commissioner “Moe” Schwab announced foe county had received a $79,000 grant for the project.
Schwab said foe county applied for $123,000 from foe Alamo Area Council of Governments. However, AACOG received requests totaling $2.1 million and only had $575,520 to distribute.
Of the money received from the grant, $17,000 is for a Pneumatic Tire Lift Truck; $17,000 for a 10-bin recycling trailer, $31,000 for a CAB and CHASSIS; $5,000 for consulting fees; and $9,000 for construction material for a building. Schwab received permission to take any “residue” hinds and apply them toward foe construction of a 15 feet by 75 feet slab. Schwab said the building will be built later when more money is available.
“I may have to come back to commissioners court and ask for $5 or JSOJOOO more (for foe cpqtoyptipn pf
the slab), but I hope not,” said Schwab. “We’ll just pour foe slab for now so I don’t have to take the taxpayers money.”
Schwab said the slab and eventual building will be used to store equipment and baled material. He said this will reduce some of the ongoing costs because the county “won’t have to pay rent on these two big dumpsters.”
Once the baler is working and material can be baled, the county will not have to ship it off right a way. Schwab said the bales can be stored and sold when prices are a little higher. This could be beneficial to the county considering the amount of recyclable material collected.
“If cardboard prices pick up, we might even be able to pay our help with it,” he said.
In September, the county will also be eligible to apply for an enhancement grant.TP&W biologists defend regulations
By DAVID DEKUNDER
Two biologists from foe Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Inland Fisheries Division say the new proposed fishing regulations for foe Guadalupe River need to be given a chance to work so the Guadalupe can become a year-round trout fishery.
“This (Guadalupe River) is the only place in foe state in which we can do a year-round trout fishery,” TP&W biologist Dave Terre said.
Terre and his colleague, biologist Steve Magnelia, were defending the proposed fishing rules by TP&W that would attempt to develop a trout fishery in the Guadalupe River. The new fishing regulations would change the current no minimum to a 16-inch minimum length limit for trout caught. The five-day bag limit would be reduced to a three fish a day bag limit, and only artificial lures would be allowed. TTiese proposed regulations would cover a IO mile area of the Guadalupe River from the second bridge crossing on River Road upstream to the easternmost bridge crossing on FM 306 near the White-

The proposed rales have raised concerns among landowners and fishermen along foe river because they say the regulations would infringe on the rights of natural bait fishermen who have fished on the river for many years. Natural baits would be such baits as com, cheese, worms and insects.
Magnelia said the mortality rate for fish who are caught and released on natural baits is about 40 percent com-

pared to artificial lures, which is around five to IO percent.
Before the rules can be put into place, TP&W will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, April IO at 7 p.m. at the Comal County Courthouse Annex in the Commissioners Court room. TP&W officials say they will present the concerns from the public hearings to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission at its regular meeting in May. The commission will have the final say on whether or not foe proposed fishing regulations will go through.
Unlike some trout fisheries around the state, temperatures in the Guadalupe River are cool year round because the
water is released from Canyon Dam.
Magnelia said studies in 1993-94 showed promising results for foe survival of trout on the Guadalupe River, stating that the trout had grown between the summer and fall of 1994.
Terre said if the proposed regulations are approved by foe Paries and Wildlife Commission, he and foe rest of the TP&W staff would monitor them closely.
“It is an experimental regulation,’* Terre said. ““We stay on top of these regulations, and we will evaluate them regularly. If we don’t feel like they are working we will revert to the way it was or modify them. We are not staying with something that won’t woric.”|
