New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 27, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas 2A New Braunfels Hexa\6-Zeitung Tuesday, August 27,1985 Marion votes to pay Council, mayor★ County. By SARAH DUKE Staff writer MARION — Members of the Marion city council voted to have the city pay them $15 for each city council meeting. The mayor will now be paid $400 a month. The pay for city officials was included in the 1985-85 city budget. The budget of $372,447 was approved unanimously. The budget included $164,222 in the general account and $208,225 in the waterworks and sewer account. “My feeling is that if you are going to try to attract good people for the jobs (of mayor and councilman I, you need to have some incentive," said Mayor Clarence Jackson. “Personally, I do not like to see the council and mayor get so much money,” said Councilman Charles Schulz. “I have been on the council for 12 years and I’ve got $12 to show for it." The councilmen and mayor have traditionally been paid $1 a year for serving on the council. Births Mr. and Mrs. Alan Ferrell, 614 Bavarian No. 806, 8 lb. 2 oz. boy, Aug. 23.

Memorials may be made to the Weather “When we start doing this,” Schulz said, “we’re going to get people who want to be on the council because they want political power.” Schulz said he thinks people should be on the council because they want to serve the community. Other council members said they think the money will serve as an incentive to encourage more people to run for office. Councilman Felix Arambula said that he feels $400 a month for the mayor is not enough to compensate for the time invested. “I think the time has come for Marion to pay its city council,” Arambula said. “I don’t see how anyone could say that it is a luxury job and clearly no one is going to get rich off of it...but there needs to be some incentive to be on the council.” Arambula said he intends to donate his pay to charity. The pay for the council members and the mayor will cost the city $6,600 during the 1985-86 fiscal year. Continued from Page 1A cutting the sheriff’s department by one investigator since one recently quit. But Fellers explained that the DA’s investigator would be concentrating on particular types of cases, whereas the sheriff’s investigators go to every crime scene. “Also we need to standardize the weapons,” Fellers said. “Right now each deputy buys his own. So we have everything from .38 caliber to .44 Magnums. If we are ever involved in a lawsuit over a shooting we will be covered if the weapons are authorized models and meet inspection standards.” Constables had an uphill battle because commissioners were interested in whether the justice of the peace and constables offices were making money for the county, an issue that has come up with no other law enforcement agency or court during the budget hearings. “We know that there are other intangibles to take into account, but right now the only concern we have is what is the bottom line: dollars,” Clark said. After subtracting costs of operating the justice of the peace and constable of Precinct 4 from all fines brought in, the office just about broke even without giving constables an raises, Clark said. After Constable Fidel Tamez presented the amount of work he and his deputy had done, he requested a radar unit, 32 more hours for his deputy, a car for his deputy which would be one of the sheriff’s department used cars and a pay increase for himself from $5,304 per year to $9,600. A sheriff deputy’s beginning salary is about $17,000. "We get called at all hours, from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., we are able to back up the sheriff’s department and they call us when they are tied up on one thing and another call comes in,” Tamez said. Tamez listed that he had given out 619 citations and 150 warning citations since he came in office. In Precinct 4 the sheriff’s department had 145 citations and the Department of Public Safety had filed Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Collins, 452 Academy, 6 lb., IO oz. boy, Aug. 24.

Texas Thunderstorms developed early today over the western section of North Texas from the Red River near Wichita Falls southward to northeast of San Angelo. Other showers were occurring over the South Plains from Lubbock to Snyder while heavy thunderstorms rumbled offshore along the upper Texas coast. Elsewhere, skies were fair to partly cloudy as high pressure in the upper levels" of the atmosphere remaind the primary weather feature.

Tamez had also worked about 55 hours per week, he, adding that he had written up 20 offense reports, and served 15 warrants. His deputy had worked 60 hours unpaid. County Auditor Bate Bond backed up Tamez’s claim that his deputy’s personal insurance would not cover him if he had an accident in his personal vehicle while working for the county. This reasoning had been used to give Constable Danny Scheel’s deputy a car. Clark asked Bond to look for insurance that the county would pay for to cover the personal vehicles used for patrols. Scheel, of Precinct 2, had also asked for an increase in hours for his deputy from 150 hours to 350 hours and a pay increase for himself to $9,600. He backed up his request with the figures on his offices operation. “So far this year we have driven 22,358 miles in patrolling. We cover the subdivisions from IO a.m. to 3 p.m., the peak times for burglaries, and then we patrol the busy highways and county roads in our district,” Scheel said. “This will be the third straight month with no burglaries and no major accidents in our precinct.” Clyde Jacobs, who will teach at Teen Connection this year and previously worked as a jailer, defended the constables. “I’ve seen the arrests as they come in and constables handle a large majority of them,” Jacobs said. “I’ve seen counties go to centralization as they grew to eventually see the benefit of decentralization. I’m just darn glad we have the constables out there." Jacobs said no deputy could have the knowledge of a local area the way the constalbes could because the latter live there. “You can’t beat them for cost effectiveness. And for a deference to crime." Jacobs said. Survivors include his daughters Mrs. Philip Hage and Mrs. Herman Weise, both of Austin, Mrs. Chester Kollodziejof San Antonio and Mrs. Raymond Lucera of Boerne; sons Andrew J. Friesenhahn of Stephenville .and Claude F. Friesenhahn of Converse; sister Mrs. Orville French of Bracketville; brothers Isodore Friesenhahn of New Braunfels and Henry J.
