New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 25, 2004, New Braunfels, Texas city    ™ r ll S C|^V LIMIT - By Leigh Jones Staff Writer Monday night, New Braunfels Independent School District Board of Trustees will quiz administration on the connection between the proposed tax year change and next year’s budget. Although the board has had several opportunities at previous meetings to discuss both issues, some trustees still have questions. “We haven’t had much budget discussion yet,” said Sandy Hill, NBISD executive director of business services. “During the last workshops, [trustees] have discussed the tax year.” Trustees voted unanimously at the last regular meeting to postpone further discussion on the proposed tax year change until their budget questions could be answered. They might consider a vote May IO. Faced with a projected $1.3 million deficit, the board hired a consultant to recommend possible budget cuts, one of which was changing the tax year to take advantage of current property appraisals. Superintendent Ron Reaves’ proposed budget—without changing the tax year — results in a net loss of $17,044. He cut $1,331,703 out of a See NBISD.

For him and his wife Robert Kendrick painter, a business owner, a politician and family man. “He was always an excellent father,” said Bob Kendrick, Kendrick’s oldest son. “He was very supportive in whatever we wanted to do."

While    Kendrick designed and built a house was on council, he was part almost on his own. Knowing the pancreatic cancer had finally defeated him, he spent the last month or more of his life in the home looking out at the waters of the Guadalupe River. During his life he was a bird watcher, an intellectual, a boy scout, an athlete, an architect, a sculptor and of a recurring 4-3 split pitting pro-chamber of commerce members against anti-chamber members.

Inside Deal could end fire/EMS service outside city limits Dy Scott Mahon Staff Writer New Braunfels Fire Department and the cities of Seguin and Schertz liave provided fire and EMS services in Guadalupe County for years, but that could change Tuesday. lf it does, NBFD personnel will not respond to emergency calls outside their own city limits, a concern for residents in nearby communities like Lake Dunlap and Geronimo. But if Guadalupe County commissioners vote the way rural residents want, a four-agency coalition will continue to provide the type of service that those and other Guadalupe County residents have come to expect. Debate over the issue has raged for weeks as Guadalupe commissioners searched for a lower-cost service option. But Guadalupe County Judge Donald Schraub said the City of Seguin may have “black mailed” commissioners, strong-arming them into continuing a three-year-old mutual-aid agreement. WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT? Three years ago, Guadalupe County entered into an agreement with Schertz and Seguin to provide EMS services to almost 700 square miles of unincorporated areas of the county. As a result, a coalition was formed between Seguin, Schertz, Hays County and New Braunfels to provide mutual assistance for fire and EMS services in Guadalupe County. Each outside agency is paid for providing emergency services in Guadalupe County. New Braunfels receives about $60,000 a year, Darren Brinkkoeter, New Braunfels fire marshal, said. Over time, Guadalupe County officials became concerned about he amount of money See MAL, Page 2A DAVID MORAM/Herald-Zeitung lf Guadalupe County commissioners don't vote Tuesday the way rural residents want. New Braunfels EMS personnel like Brandon Riojas, left, and Brett Patton will not be able to travel beyond the New Braunfels city limits to respond to calls in Guadalupe County.
