“They will be taken in by San Antonio’s ETJ by 1998,” Scheel said. “With San Antonio’s next ETJ jump, Bulverde will be in it. It is just a matter of time.”
Scheel said including Bulverde would swell San Antonio’s tax revenue coffers.
“With the way the area is growing, they want an area where building is going on,” he said. “They want to expand their tax base.”
Resident Marlene Keller was involved in an effort a couple of years ago to incorporate the Oak Village North subdivision.
“I think it needs to be studied,” Keller said. “I think people need to be educated on the pros and cons of it. If you get into an incorporation situation,^ you need to know the cost of it. It is not free.”
Keller was on the fact-finding committee in 1991 which gatheredDrought

information on the Oak Village North incorporation issue. Voters in that subdivision located on Farm-to-Market Road 1863 turned down incorporation.
Keller said incorporation would give the Bulverde area controls it never had before.
Scheel said if San Antonio extended its ETJ Bulverde residents would have no choice but to follow the city’s regulations.
“Once they are taken into their ETJ they would still have to follow the regulations and building codes (of San Antonio),” Scheel said. “If they want to add on to their house they are going to have to go to San Antonio.” Oak Village North resident Bill

Wilson said incorporation would give Bulverde residents a chance to control the future of their area.
“We have no control over zoning and over concrete batch plants. We don’t have control over what happens,” Wilson said. “Once we are inside San Antonio’s ETJ we can’t incorporate without their permission. You imagine that will not happen.”
Wilson said incorporation would give people a chance to negotiate service options from City Public Service, Pedernales Electric Cooperative, cable companies and long distance phone companies.
He said any city government Bulverde tried to set up would need to have a viable tax base.
County Judge Carter Casteel said Commissioners Court and the county could help Bulverde residents incorporate.
“I know for example the sheriff could still patrol the roads during a transition period,” Casteel said.
“We can provide law enforcement until they get going.”
She said that would subject to approval of Commissioners Court.
Casteel said she can understand the sentiments of those who may not want a city government in Bulverde. She said some people move to the country in order not to pay city taxes and be free of restrictive city ordinances.
“I understand that philosophy,” Casteel said.
Keller said incorporation failed the last time because many people were afraid of new regulations and paying new taxes.
“People didn’t fully understand,” Keller said. “I just don’t think they saw San Antonio extending its ETJ soon within the next IO years. They said, ‘Why worry about it?”’
“I think people are seeing the writing on the wall,” Scheel said.
