Council to hear Michie proposal MondayBy DANA STELL Staff writer
A proposed water quality testing program not accepted by City Council two weeks ago so Chamber of Commerce interests could review it, will again be reviewed by Council Monday night.
City Manager Joe Michie presented a year-round program for water testing at the April 15 Council meeting. But Chamber members, including resort owners and outfitters, said they thought they would be able to discuss the plan before Council gave its approval.
Also Monday, Council will conduct public hearings on the proposed rezonings of four areas annexed into the city last September.
Planning and Zoning Commission has recommended zoning classifications of the final four of the IO areas annexed in September.
After the public hearings, Council will conduct the first of three readings on the zoning ordinances.
The recommendations :
— Area D — a 335-acre tract on the southern edge of the city bounded by FM 725, Old McQueeney Road, Pah-meyer Road, and the old city limits, and extending 300 feet south of County Line Road. C-l (local business) for the land 300 feet on either side of County Line Road, R-3 (multi-family) for the Northridge Subdivision, C-l for 22.44 acres of the land belonging to New Braunfels Savings and Loan that is adjacent to the school property and R-3 for the remainder of the bank’s property, and R-2 (single and two-family) for the rest of the tract.
Area E — 240 acres south of the city between FM 1044 and Morningside Drive will have a recommenation of R-2 zoning.
Area F — about 66 acres 500 feet on both sides of Krueger Lane for one mile, M-2 (heavy industry).
Area I — is 175 acres 300 feet on both sides of FM 306 extending two miles northward. That has a recommendation for C-l (local business from the old city limits to Bretzke Lane and C-3 (commercia) from Bretzke out.
Other public hearings will be held on a recommendation to grant a special use permit for 1023 W. Bridge, which is zoned R-2, for a day care center; and on a recommendation to change from R-2 to C-l portions of lots on North Loop 337.
The first reading of an ordinance creating a permanent rivers advisory board also will be read Monday night.
Council will read, for the third and final time, the rezoning ordinances for a strip 300 feet on both sides of FM 725 from County Line Road to Klein Line (R-l) and from Klein Lane to the southern city limits (C-3); and a strip of land 300 feet on each side of Texas 46 West from T-Bar-M to the new city limits (R-l).
Council plans to read an emergency ordinance setting the tax rate for July 1,1984 to June 30,1985. Michie said the city must pass the rate early so tax notices can be printed and bills can be sent.
Also set for Monday’s Council meeting, is a resolution to increase municipal court costs so a portion can be donated to Teen Connection. County courts already contribute, and director Nancy Ney asked the city for a resolution asked the Texas Legislature to allow the city to do the same.
Other agenda items:
— set date, time, and place for a public hearing before adopting the city budget for 1985-1986.
— consider request to donate funds to the Sesquicentennial committee.
— discuss request of Alzafar Shrine Temple to solicit
contributions on Main Plaza May 4.
— consider a resolution for an encumbrance of a leasehold between the city and New Braunfels Aero Service, Inc. to Texas Commerce Bank and to New Braunfels National Association.
— report from the quarry-industrial-rail study committee.
— accept bids for oil distributor for the street department and advertise for bids for lighting improvements at the spring-fed pool.
Estate planning seminar Tuesday
Effective estate planning can make the difference between a stress-filled situation and an organized tansfer of assets or guardianship of minor children.
The Comal County Extension Program Building Committee will hold an Estate Planning Seminar, Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the New Braunfels Presbyterian Church, 373 Howard St. There will be a $3 registration fee for supplies.
Local experts will present current information on effective wills, trusts and estate taxes.
Seminar participants will have an opportunity to ask questions of the experts.
When a death occurs in a family, life can become unstable and stress filled for the survivors if there is no will and no plans have been made. Besides the emotional toll, financial demands can cause additional problems. Adults of all ages should have a will or the state of Texas will make it at death. If control of assets and guardianship of minor children is important to you as well as minimizing tax liability, plan to attend the estate planning seminar Educational programs conducted by the Texas Agricultural Extension Service serve people of all ages regardless of socioeconomic level, race, color, sex, religion, handicap or national origin.Cleanup continues
