to cover budget items when the tax rate was set too low to fund the budget.
The board also approved out-ofdistrict student transfers. These arc students who live outside of the district but want to attend CISD.
“At some point we have to ask ourselves ‘how much is too much?’,” said Trustee Jim Middleton. “In tough budget times we have to make these decisions. My point is that when we’re down to telling teachers they can’t go to out of district training, and we’re cutting the shuttle — everything has to be looked at.”
“I feel like we’re approving transfers that would not be approved by TEA,” said Trustee Tom Potter. “This isn’t fair to families.”
Each family receives a letter explaining that if the TEA docs not approve a transfer that the students must return to the school they arc supposed to be attending. Board President Lee Ikels said.
“Most of the students we approve live right on the district borderline,” Trustee Leroy Goodson said. “Here’s a youngster who’s been at this school since kindergarten and is now in eleventh grade — it’s a special request. Are you going to cut him out now?”
Approval of out-of-district transfers passed on a 5-2 vote with Ikels, Goodson, Hays, Craighead and Cantu voting for. Potter and Middleton voted against.
After an executive session of over an hour, trustees confirmed the transfer of Ken Rotzler to the position of basketball coach of Canyon High School.
After the meeting, trustees toured the new Bill Brown Elementary School which will open next week.

IVictoria adds Executive to portfolio
By ROBERT STEWART Staff Writer
The Resolution Trust Corporation closed the Executive Banc in New Braunfels on Friday and approved the transfer of insured deposits to Vic
toria Bank and Trust of New Braunfels, marking further growth for the Victoria-based bank, according to Theresa McUsic, spokesperson for theRTC.

The bill prohibits permits to commercial hazardous waste facilities located within one-half mile of an established residence, church, school, day-care center, dedicated park or body of surface water used for public drinking water.
Securing a Future Environment (SAFE), opponents of the Lafarge plan, say three residences are located within a half-mile of the cement kiln and would kill the plan under 1099, according to a survey they commissioned.
Lafarge Corporation and its subsidiary, Systech Environmental Corporation, have applied for permits from the Texas Water Commission and the Texas Air Control Board to proceed with the altemative-fuels plan at the Balcones Heights plant just outside the city limits.
The second resolution, approved by a 5-2 vote, calls for a ban on city purchase of raw cement from any company or manufacturer that bums hazardous waste as a fuel in its manufacturing process.
Mayor James Goodbread, Mayor Pro Tem Ramon Chapa and Council Members Rudy Seidel, Bill Arnold and Paul Fraser voted in favor of the measure. Council Members Clinton Brandt and Loraine Kraft voted against, saying they preferred wording giving current and future city councils a choice in such purchases.
“I made the point some time ago that 30 years ago we thought that asbestos was the greatest thing in the world, but we’ve come to find out that it’s not,” Fraser said. “We may find out down the line that cement produced using hazardous and toxic waste may become a similar dilemma.”
In its third resolution, the council unanimously asked the Texas Municipal League to support Senate Bill 1099 and to oppose any future amendments in upcoming legislative sessions.
Also, the council unanimously approved the first reading of an ordinance extending the city’s hotel-motcl occupancy tax on hotel facilities located in the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.
A recent change in state law allows the city to extend the tax, Grohman said. The only two facilities Grohman said he knew of that would be affected are the T Bar M and the John Ncwcombe tennis ranches, which have agreed to be annexed by the end of this year.
Banc can automatically continue to conduct business transactions with Victoria Bank. They should, however, visit the institution during the next several weeks to discuss continuation of specific services. In the interim, all check drawn on Executive Banc’s accounts will continue to be honored.
In June, Victoria assumed control of First Federal Savings of New Braunfels, taking over offices in New Braunfels, Wimberley, San Marcos and Canyon Lake.
Executive Banc was founded in 1984 and had 1,400 deposit accounts totaling $11 million. The institution had assets of $ 11.6 million and liabilities of $ 11.1 million, McUsic said.
The bank reopened Monday as an office of Victoria Bank.
Victoria Bank will pay a premium
to the RTO of $1,000 and will buy about $700,000 worth of furniture and equipment in the deal. Victoria Banc was the only institution to place a formal bid, McUsic said.
The RTC will advance $10.3 million to the acquirer and retain $10.9 million of the closed institutions assets. The ultimate cost to the RTC for this transaction is estimated to be $4.2 million, McUsic said.
With the former Executive Banc office, Victoria now has locations in New Braunfels at 1000 N. Walnut, 199 Main Plaza and 555 W. Interstate 35. Customers of Victoria Bank and Trust can obtain service at any of the bank’s locations around the state.
The bank operates in smaller cities and has no operations in large metropolitan areas, according to T.L. Walker, president of Victoria Bank and Trust-New Braunfels.

Chapa seeking comments on city road improvement
By MARK WARNKEN Staff Wrltar
New Braunfels Mayor Pro Tem Ramon Chapa Jr. has asked residents citywide, not only in his district, to contact him with road-improvement suggestions.
The District I representative said he plans to lobby other members of the City Council during an upcoming retreat to place a significant bond issue before the voters.
“We have to keep up with some type of improvements, lf not, it could become impossible to do any repairs in the long run because the roads would be so badly out of shape,’’ Chapa said.
He requests that residents call and if necessary leave a message for him at the Municipal Building, 625-3425, with road-improvement suggestions.
Chapa said he has no estimated total for a proposed bond issue at this point and will wait for input from the community and the council, which has not formally agreed to the suggestion.
“We’re going to have to be very careful because there might be some kind of tax increase generated through this, but I want to keep it to a minimum,” he said.
