New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 9, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas New county jail nearing completion By LILLIAN THOMAS Staff writer Most of the work on the new jail’s administrative area will be finished in a week for the furniture’s arrival, county commissioners learned Monday. Buddy Vogler, site inspector representing the architect firm of Christopher DiStefano, told commissioners everything should be ready by May 17 for the administrative use of the building and the prisoners could be moved after the sheriff’s department has worked any bugs out. ‘ The sheriff and I inspected the work this morning and it is coming right along. The contractor is slowly getting the last things done. We are having some problems with getting the carpet installation in the administrative area. We are having trouble getting the guy to stay cm the job,” Vogler said. Commissioner J.L. Evans questioned whether time on the schedule needed to be added with every change order. ‘The contractor adds the days with the change order and it is up to the architect to look over what he adds and decide whether the extra days on the completion date are warranted,” Vogler explained. He also suggested that the county seal the cement floor in the detention area rather than putting an epoxy paint finish on it. We have had the epoxy paint come up in at least two jails we’ve done. As far as maintenance goes, the sealer is also easier to maintain,” Vogler said. Commissioner Monroe Wetz said the sealer finish was easier to keep clean, and Commissioner Bill George said it was cheaper. Vogler also cleared up a misconception members of the Men’s Garden Club, who are planning the landscaping for the jail site, had when they informally presented their plan to com missioners last week. The pipe under the pavement was put there as a conduit for a sprinkler system, not a drainage pipe, Vogler said. The Men’s Garden Club members had estimated the cost of going under the pavement with conduit (tearing up the pavement) in its estimate along with the cost of the sprinkler system because they thought the pipe there was for drainage. The landscaping plan, which will be reviewed by commissioners Thursday, gave two alternatives for an irrigation system, ranging between $4,500 and $9,000. The landscaping itself will cost $4,700. During county engineer Clark McCoy’s monthly report, commissioners discussed whether he should have an office at the Courthouse. McCoy pointed out that four people occupied the office on Hwy. 46 that was 360 square feet and the public used it to get business on subdivision regulations, driveways over county right-of-way approvals, and flood plain information. Wetz suggested moving the temporary building used for prisoners currently to add onto his space at the present office. County Judge Fred Clark wanted that building saved for the new satellite office at Canyon Lake, and George agreed. “There will be room for an office for him once the new Annex is built. We need to first decide whether the county engineer should be at the courthouse before we decide to use some temporary stopgap measure to give him more room where he is, or build something more permanent out there,” Clark said. They did not make that decision in Monday’s meeting. In other business, the commissioners approved a grant application from Juvenile Probation for $12,000. Commissioners also signed a deed to convey .061 acres of land to the state along FM 1863. Trash picked up Monday ended up on this lot on North Hackberry ceryl clark herald zehung City clean-up brings out plenty of trash Street crews picked up an odd assortment of garbage during the first day of the city-wide trash clean-up. “We have a nice collection of beds, water heaters, and couches,” public works director Fred Hyden told City Council Monday. Street crews are following sanitation crews each Monday and Tuesday of this month picking up extra trash. The first area (Monday) was north of San Antonio and west of Walnut. Today’s pickup is south of San Antonio and west of South Mesquite. Trash picked up Monday was dumped on a city-owned vacant lot at the end of Hackberry Street, while today’s spoils will go to a lot next to the National Guard Armor)' on IH 35. Hyden said it would be too expensive to make a number of trips to the landfill after picking up the trash, so the junk picked up both days will be taken to the landfill Wednesday. “It would have been too far and too much wasted per day” to take each load to the landfill, Ryden said. He said the Hackberry lot was the closest area to the West End section. “We were working in that entire area,” he said. “It will be removed tomorrow.” The next area, on April 15, is north of San Antonio, east of Walnut and west of luanda On April 16, pickup will be south of San Antonio, east of Walnut and South Mesquite and west of Seguin Street and FM 725. Trash must be in the yard or driveway by 7:30 a m. the day of pickup Crews will pick up wood items, dog houses, ice boxes, freezers, and general lawn items. They will not pick up cars, car bodies, motors, transmissions, boats, tree trunks, or stumps. The landfill will have free admission on April 13,20. and 27. -DANA STELL Calendar Government New Braunfels ISD: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, New Braunfels High School library.

Janet tea. -WW XMCM* in the Hwrald-Zeltunfl City to form rivers board By DANA STELL Staff writer Acting on a recommendation from a temporary river committee, City Council Monday night agreed to form a permanent rivers advisory board. The seven-member board will relieve Council of some of its time spent on water concerns by acting as a go-between for the community and the Council, the committee said. Betty Kyle, chairman of the city-appointed rivers conservation and preservation committee, said the advisory' board will be made up of committed citizens who will focus on water and will have the right to make strong recommendations. The permanent board could, Kyle said, give input to the rivers oversight committee, which was formed on the suggestion of the National Parks Service. That committee is formulating a rivers management plan An advisory board also should establish a program of conservation education and could work with the parks department to coordinate regular river clean-ups. However, Kenneth Fiedler, a dissenting member of the rivers committee, said an advisory board is not needed. “Numerous owners of property and businesses along the rivers have appeared at Committee meeting, stating that no additional supervisory agency or ordinance-making authority is required,” stated Fiedler’s report to Council. “These people have been ignored, or their presentations considered as against the entire report.” Councilmember Betty Lou Rushing said the advisory board is an attempt at having “control by our local citizens on a local level. “As we grow, we need expert advice,” she said. “Their (the rivers committee’s) recommendations are so credible, it’s so important that we proceed and progress with a management plan for the rivers and the water.” ;
