New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 27, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas New Braunfels Hera\d-Zeiturig    Tuesday, August 27,1985 8A ★Tax hike_ Continued from Page 1A paying off the 1985-86 debt service requirement for over $2 million on the district’s old and new bond issues. The most recent issue for $19.96 million was passed last May by almost a three-to-one margin. At IOO percent collection, the proposed $1.04( tax rate would give the district an additional $4,311,120 in revenues over last year’s rate. So why raise taxes? “Of that $4 million, we expect a certified loss from the state at $888,441. To balance the 1984-85 budget, $1,865,407 was taken out of surplus, and we’ll need 2,540,000 for debt service,” Business Manager Abel Campos said. So we’re starting out $983,628 in the hole, even if the budget stayed as it was,” he added. This year’s budget represents a 2.1 percent increase over last year’s, even with career ladder and hikes in salaries, utilities, library books and the district’s share (from 38 to 41 percent) of the Central Appraisal District budget. “If we backed out career ladder and House Bill 72 (mandates), we’d be under last year’s budget,” Brown said, adding over $1 million in capital outlay and about $400,000 in teaching supplies had been cut to get to the $15 million proposal. “That’s probably going to mean more trips to the blackboard, but the next years are critical until we level out,” he added. The 1985-86 budget also includes a $600,000 carryover, but several patrons expressed more concern over $1.8 million in carryover used to balance the 1984-85 budget. “If we hadn’t had the $1.8 (million), you wouldn’t have had the 83-cent tax rate,” Trustee Carter Casten said. Patron James Stoke asked how taxpayers could "put the clamps on” and keep the board from “blowing another $2 million like last year.” Board President Leroy Goodson reminded the audience that House Bill 72 was signed into law on July 3, 1984, and "we had 30 days to implement parts of it. The board just tried to implement the program put before us.” Casteel said everyone complaining about tax hikes should remember "Austin is the key. We’ve got to lobby in Austin and we hollered that last year. We’ve got to get Edmund Kuempel and John Traeger, and convince them we’re not a rich school district. "There’s no doubt House Bill 72 represents a new era of education, and we’re excited about certain parts of it,” Casteel added. "But keep in mind one thing. They continue to brag about it in Austin, but we’re paying for it locally.” A public hearing on the proposed $1,046 tax rate has been set for 7:30 p.m. Sept. 12 at Frazier Elementary, with adoption scheduled for 7 p.m. Sept. 17 at Smithson Valley High School prior to the board’s 7:30 p.m. regular meeting. ★ Drainage Continued from Page 1A we can go on planning,” said the committee’s finance chairman Doyle Krueger. Any money actually spent, Krueger said, probably will be returned to the funding entities through money raised from admission charges to some of the celebration’s events. Councilwoman Betty Lou Rushing said the Sesquicentennial Committee should use volunteers whenever possible and not depend on the city. "Volunteerism is the ‘in’ thing and we’re calling on volunteers to supplement city endeavors,” she said. "And that’s the way we’re going to have togo.” Krueger said the committee plans several fund-raising events before the actual celebration, "but we do need time.” — signed a resolution leasing the basement of Kleinhalle to Circle Arts Theatre, Inc. The area had been used as a shooting range. — approved a license for Aguinaldo Zamora to store wrecked and abandoned vehicles at 2174 Spur 3. Zamora raised a question about a requirement for fencing around the area and council Monday agreed that he will be required to comply with fencing requirements. Council also agreed to send a letter to all licensed wrecking yards where vehicles are being stored to ensure that all places comply with the city’s fencing requirements. — approved the final reading of an ordinance revising the permitted uses in industrial districts and the second reading of an ordinance requiring licensing of private garbage haulers and setting licensing fees. — approved the first reading of an ordinance granting a special use permit to Marge Crumbaker and Betty Mitchell to allow a restaurant at a house at 600 Elizabeth St. — first denied the first reading of an ordinance granting R-3 zoning to property at 1521 S.

Continued from Page 1A Rubio said Montgomery had retrieved a M-l carbine .30 caliber semi-automatic rifle from the trunk of his car, and fired it at least five times. He hit one of the victim’s cousins in the left hip, then shot up the pickup where the other four I Mexican nationals) were sitting,” Rubio said. “There was a hole in the side of the truck, and two bullets hit the windshield.” The man wounded in the hip and another Mexican national who got glass in both of his eyes were transported to Northeast Baptist Hospital, where they were later treated and released. last March five Mexican nationals were gunned down gangland-style off EM 1863. One died, but four of them survived. Of the two San Antonio men charged with capital murder in that shooting, Rudolfo Hernandez is set to go to trial here on Sept. 9. Jesse Garibay, his co-defendant, is scheduled to testify against Hernandez in an apparent plea bargain with the state. "I asked the victim if he’d heard of this other case, and he said, ‘No,’ ” Rubio said. “When I told him one of the guys died, his eyes got real, real big.” the question of ‘Corporation’ or No Corporation.’” If the election is put at the same time as the constitutional amendment election in November, it will save the county the cost of a separate election with separate ballots and election judges. David Thompson, the leader in the corporation movement, at the beginning of August approached County Judge Clark with the application and map. The area wishing to incorporate as a village includes Sattler and River Road area ★ CAD. Continued from Page 1A expected to rise to 49 cents next June. Recently, the office expanded into an adjacent 1,000 square foot room for a cost of about 24 cents per square foot per month. Chairman Charles Lewis said in May that the appraisal district is expected to need at least another 5,000 to 7,000 square feet within five years. Directors also heard again from landlord Richard Seidel who offered to sell the entire complex on I>oop 337 to the district, which would get more space in the building. Directors thanked Seidel for his presentation and took no action.
