New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 15, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas 10A New Braunfels Hera\d-Zeitung Thursday, August 15, 1985 ★ Incorporation Continued from Page 1A “Everybody knows a city has to have taxes,” said Thompson, adding that he believes the city will earn enough property tax money to have a tax rate of 5 cents per $100 valuation. Davis explained that the maximum tax rate allowed is 25 cents and said the tax rate will be set by the city’s governing body. Thompson said the city could raise $176,000 per year from property taxes and about $160,000 from a city sales tax. He had no figures on how much it will cost the city to maintain roads and hire deputies. “We will have our own law enforcement group. EMS is a question mark, but I gather that it wouldn’t change until you get on your own,” Davis said. The committee said it could work out a contract with Comal County Commissioners to maintain roads on a cost basis. Davis said the village’s extraterritorial jurisdiction will extend another half-mile from the boundaries. Then, residents of the ETJ can petition to be included in the yearly annexations. Many audience members expressed concern that the strip takes in their business, but not their home on the same property. Eligible voters must live in the targeted area for 30 days prior to the election and one man suggested that a person with property in the area could let “40, 50 or IOO people reside on his property,’’ for 30 days which would make them eligible voters. One woman said she is in favor of incorporation but added that it will be difficult to determine qualified or illegal votes. Still another member of the audience said the committee is too anxious to incorporate. “We’ve got all these people here who aren’t included. Why are they here, why am I here? ” said Ralph Richey. “It seems to me you are a little over-ambitious. You’re not getting the real people. Why don’t we work with the rest of the lake and incorporate?” There has been talk of incorporation by other groups in the lake area, including a group in Sattler, which wants to incorporate the whole village, according to Bill Fry. Thompson, who filed the incorporation maps with County Judge Fred Clark Aug. 6, said the election could be held as soon as November. “How much commentary would you have to hear to back off and let us have our say?” asked Brenda Adair. “We’ve gone too far,” answered Thompson. The meeting ended abruptly when Thompson asked the group which form of government it preferred — a mayor and two commissioners or a mayor and eight aldermen. Taking the position that they didn’t want any form of city government, most of the audience members walked away from the call for a vote. ★ Grand Jury. Continued from Page 1A Welborn was arrested on July I at the R-B Tractor Service in Comal County. In all, the Grand Jury returned 14 indictments and no-billed five individuals. The no-bills were: Karen K. Summersill, Donna Smith Cody, Garry Eugene Williamson, Michael R. Gillentine, and Martin Guillin. Mario Albert Valadez of 460 S. Central, Julian Cuevas (also known as Joe Segundo), Luciano Daniel “Magoo” Reyes of 423 Commache, and John Larry Peak of 1135 Rosewood, San Antonio, were each indicted for burglary of a habitation. Joe Edward Waldrop Jr. of 13 Mission was indicted for aggravated assault of a peace officer, involving an incident with Pedro G. Villarreal on May 25. An indictment for aggravated sexual abuse of a child was returned against David Charles Perry (also known as Jeff Owens Perry) of Flintstone Drive, Canyon Lake. ★Tax hike. Continued from Page 1A and House Bill 72 (mandates), we’d be under last year’s budget, folks,” Brown stated. “I’ll tell you right now there’s not anything else to cut in this budget. It will be tight, very tight. “We went to a line-item budget this year, because we’re a big business now. We cut over $1 million in capital outlay, and about $300-400,000 in teaching supplies,” he added. “That’s probably going to mean more trips to the blackboard, but the next two years are critical until we level out.” The proposed budget also includes a carryover of about $600-700,000 for next year. But Brown said, “A district this size should have $2 million in surplus so we don’t ever have to borrow any money.” The budget will again appear on the agenda for the regular board meeting on Aug. 20, beginning at 7:30 p.m. A public hearing and adoption of the budget has also been set for Aug. 26. Both meetings will be at Frazier Elementary. In other action, trustees named three local banks as bond depositories for the $19.% million bond issue passed last May by CISD patrons. Campos said the size of the issue made it necessary to split the depository award. Up to $3.5 million will be deposited at M-Bank, while up to $6.5 million will go to New Braunfels National Bank. Texas Commerce Bank indicated it would take the rest ($9.96 million). Looking to the Aug. 20 meeting, Brown said a site for the new Smithson Valley High School could be ready for his recommendation. The new school was part of last May’s bond issue. Once it is completed, the old SVHS will be turned into a junior high school. Trustees also hired teachers Kim Farlow, Keith Sullivan and Nancy Sue Brown, clerk Lindsey Miller, and custodians Nora Keys, Danny Slawter and David Schlichtmg. ★ Ski. Continued from Page 6A Travers as well. Although this week’s tournament is ber first open national competition, she has competed in the national collegiate event the last two years. She finished 10th in her first trip to the tournament and seventh last year in California.
