New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 23, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Cibolo to see tax increase hike Agreement signed Betty Walls, a member of the Comal County Legislative subcommittee, was one of the citizens on hand Tuesday to sign the cooperative river agreement. The document is u€RtL Clark Hi*HALL* ZEI I UNu a declaration of cooperation between the various interests on the Guadalupe and Comal rivers and the Rivers Oversight Committee. CIBOLO — The Cibolo City Council has approved a budget of $508,000 for the 1985-86 fiscal year and an increase in the effective tax rate. The tax rate increased from .4377 per $100 evaluation to .46459 per $100 evaluation. For instance, residents owning a $50,000 home will be paying $232.25 in taxes. $13.40 more than last year Residents owning an $80,000 will be paying $371.00 in taxes, $21.44 more than last year. The budget of $508,000 is up $90,000 from last year’s budget. David Harp, the city administrator, said the major reason for the increase is the construction of a one million gallon water storage tank. The city’s anticipated revenue is also $508,000 for fiscal year 1985-66. Harp said that about 90 percent of the $70,000 increase in water and sewage expenditures will go toward payments on debt service for the $450,000 bonds which were issued for the storage tank constuction. ‘ Our main concern is to begin making those bond payments,” Harp said. ‘‘Hopefully next year we will be able to start working on the fire department needs but right now our spending has to be pretty conservative.” “There are some areas I would like to see us a little stronger in but with the limited funds we have, I think we have a pretty good budget," said Mayor Bill Little. David Harp. city administrator, said the council will have to amend the budget later to include the city 's insurance rates. The rates are not set until the beginning of the calendar year. Councilman Fred Niemietz said at the city council meeting Tuesday that he wished the budget could include some funds for the volunteer fire department, i'm being asked all the time how much mone> we have budgeted to the fire department and we don’t have any,” he said. Harp said the council has made provisions to allocate funds to the Cibolo fire department. The city's federal revenue-sharing funds will go to the police department when and if they are received later this year. The Births Mr and Mrs. Mike Wilkinson, New Braunfels, 61b 3oz, boy.

Some 600 of the inmates will be freed under a new parole law, according to John Byrd, executive director of the state Board of Pardons and Paroles. The other 300 normally would have been released next week, department spokesman Phil Guthrie said Thursday.

According to the federal court settlement, population at existing units may not exceed 34,212. As part of the settlement, the state agreed to build new prisons and work camps to accommodate the growing inmate population. The new parole law. approved this year by the legislature, allows inmates to use so-called "good-time” accumulated during previous prison sentences if they have records of good behavior in their current jail term. Byrd said none of the inmates slated for release next week under the new law are violent offenders. "Somehow the idea of early’ translates into risk for the public and that’s not true." Byrd said "We are simply not going to release anyone who is a threat to the public."
