Visitors Bureau had an average of 325 telephone and in-person tourist contacts Monday through Thursday this week.
Bureau traffic showed signs of slowing down this week mostly because those planning to come to New Braunfels during the remaining few weeks of summer generally already have the needed tourism information. Bureau Director Jim Schcclc Jr. said.
The Labor Day weekend is expected to be good as far as local tourism, but not quite as good as the July Fourth and Memorial Day weekends, Schcclc said.

New Braunfels Independent School District Trustee Leo Chafin and returning incumbents Nayo Zamora and Arlon Hermes were sworn in as members of the NBISD board of trustees Thursday night.
Jean Ward was elected as the new president of thejboard in a 4-3 secret ballot over Dick Robinette. Ward was nominated by Margie Rabom and Robinette was nominated by Bob Clarke.
“I will try to behave myself and I appreciate your vote and will work very hard,” Ward said.
Ward is a retired teacher and received a resounding applause from some 200 teachers who made up the audience at the meeting.
Nayo Zamora was elected vicepresident after Arlon Hermes turned down the nomination due to business commitments.
Bob Clarke was elected to be the
new secretary and Dick Robinette was chosen as treasurer.
All officers other than president were chosen on unanimous voice votes.
Outgoing board president Bob Self said that being on the board had been a learning experience and that the board had provided the best possible education for the students. Superintendent Charles Bradberry presented Self with a plaque recognizing his service.
“There goes a man who deserves all our applause for 14 years of service,” Trustee Dick Robinette said.
Speakers throughout the evening commended Self and said that his knowledge and experience would be missed.
The board authorized the use of existing signature plates of the previous officers until new plates could be made for affixing official signatures to documents.

The budget is 68 percent payroll costs which is considered very good, compared to a norm of 75 percent, Curtis said.
A six percent of the midpoint salary raise for all employees is included in the budget that was passed but that could be increased after further review at the salary workshop. Representatives of the teachers organization will be invited to attend the
One bright spot in the new budget was health insurance.
“Before any bids come in, I can tell you there is no increase in health insurance cost this year,” Curtis said. “This is different from the last couple of years.”
“The computer is working fast and furious to determine the effects of last week’s election on our tax base." Curtis said. “We’re not sure of our finan
cial condition right now.”
The passage of additional homestead exemptions in the district will shift more of the tax burden to businesses in the community. The tax base in New Braunfels is 80 percent homeowners. Dick Robinette said.
The district will have to borrow money, on which interest must be paid, for operating expenses for the first time since 1975 due to the delay in tax collections and non
disbursement of state funds, Curtis said.
“There also will be no $300,000 to $400,000 generated by investment as we have had in past years," he said.
Many of these issues will be addressed again at the upcoming tax hearing. The date for the hearing will be set after the County Appraisal District determines the tax base with new exemptions figured in.
