New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 26, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas NBISD, MontHard to work together New Braunfels ISD has landed its seventh contract for industrial startup training, a program coordinated with the state Economic Development Commission and the Texas Education Agency. MontHard, a Canadian company that makes commercial door hinges, moved here in November and has begun hiring and training with the help of New Braunfels ISD’s vocational education department, Leland Cox, vocational administrator, said. The $15,759 grant pays for the training of prospective employees in areas of safety and basic equipment techniques in plating and polishing processes. “The importance for us is that it saves us a lot of time,” Robert Rent ud, with MontHard, explained. While the plant is being finished on FM 306, the training has already begun. Angel Avitia, the full-time instructor on the plating and polishing process, was hired and trained. Now he is conducting classes weekday mornings tor prospective employees. “We don’t have anything like this in Montreal,” Renaud said. “We have to train while they are working, so it takes two months after the plant is opened to start filling orders. Here we will start producing as soon as we open.” MontHard continues to take applications for the plating and polishing jobs. Later it will open the training and hiring process for the machine shop jobs. Gerd Hauessler, the machine shop instructor, has one trainee right now at the Eisen Gustav Tool and Die Co. machine shop in Seguin. “During the training period, the prospective employee gets a chance to look over the company and the company gets a chance to look over Panel: Keep lines as they are the employee,” Cox explained. Avitia said that if the people who wished to apply worked during the day and needed evening instruction, he also made those arrangements if there were enough who needed evening hours. MontHard decide to move a plant to the United States so that the “Made in USA” could be put on their hinges, Renaud said. When MontHard looked at a site in Texas, the Economic Development Commission sent it packets on various cities that met with their basic criteria.

O. Bra 961 Main Plan, New Brauaiel*. Texas 78130 3121625-8501 Member MCorp MMrlCY and FDIC By LILLIAN THOMAS Staff writer No changes will be made in boundaries between justices of the peace precincts if county commisssioners follow what the realignment committee recommended Thursday. Commissioners appointed the realignment committee two months ago to look into the workloads of the four justices of the peace and decide whether redrawing boundaries would help distribute the workload more evenly. The committee was asked t find out whether the law-required that justices of the peace that serve parts of New Braunfels had to have the city divided more equally between them. Chairman John Chunn told commissioners the law-required no changes, and that workload differences were largely happening from factors other than population differences, and would not be solved by redrawing the lines. Chunn said that most of speeding violations and driving while license suspended citations given by Department of Public Safety troopers are filed in Justice of the Peace Precinct 2. Moving the boundary or even the office would not change the fact that the Precinct 2 office would still be the JP office closest to DPS headquarters, Chunn explained. Fhrecinct I Justice of the Peace had more arraignments and class three misdemeanors issued by the sheriff’s department. “The justices of the peace for precinct 3 and 4 w ere also . not pressing about moving Startzville into precinct 4," Chunn said. That change was mainly suggested for the convenience of the the people of Startzville, but may not be made after all, if commissioners follow the no-change recommendation. "There are advantages and disadvantages to any realignment, but when we balanced all these differences, we found no compelling need to change anything. So we will just flop it back in your lap,” Chunn said. In other business, the county’s insurance consultant gave commissioners their options of getting liability coverage. The move became necessary after the company that held the county’s policy folded. “Most of the companies providing umbrella (liability) coverage are requiring an increase in the underlying coverage up to $1 million,” Mike Ixindsverk with Frank B. Hall Insurance Co. said. The county can only be sued up to $300,000 according to the Tort Claims Act, but commissioners wanted to have coverage above that amount in case of a catastrophic accident which could exceed that limit. County Judge Fred Clark explained. Commissioners agreed to increase their general liabilty up to $1 million so they could get a policy that would cover from $1-4 million. Auto liability would remain at $500,000. With the general liability limit at that level, the county could fulfill its agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to provide insurance for the private boat ramps. Commissioners also found out from l^andverk that the insurance on the reserve deputies’ private vehicles had been worked out so that the deductible on an accident would go up to $500, but the deductible on theft and fire would remain at $250.

The plant will eventually hire 15-20 local people and have a $1 million business to add to the economy of New Braunfels. NBISD has trained workers under the industrial start-up program for Detex (security devices manufacturer), Lizann (clothing manufacuter), Con Roy (trailer manufacturer).
