The WORD board of directors is scheduled to accept Walls’ resignation during a meeting Monday and determine the procedure for finding a replacement.
After her resignation, Walls stated that the district has been a “trial and error process” and that she is being

blamed now for the mistakes. She also said in the first statement that the board members, under the oversight of the Comal County Commissioners Court, were not adequately prepared to handle their duties.
County Judge Carter Casteel had responded that although the district was a now entity, the board had in fact received a lot of help since she took office.
Walls then agreed and praised Casteel in her second statement. “Judge Casteel’s offer to provide a manual similar to what the Fire District Board gets would be very helpful in my opinion,” she said.
“You have to realize that we started

this thing with nothing,” said board chairman John Landry on Saturday. “We could have used more help than we did.”
But he also said Casteel has helped the board since she took office. “Since she’s come on board, we’re getting much more assistance than we had.”
Walls* last statement concluded that she hopes the county and the district “come out better for it” when the financial questions are resolved.
“Set policies now that can be transferred and implemented wherever there is a need to balance the preservation and responsible recreational use of our natural resources,” Walls advised the board.

to Comal County residents over the Trinity Aquifer.
Many of these residents now receive water that is deteriorating in quantity and quality, according to residents and officials.
The corporation's current members want $250,000 to study the construction of a surface water treatment plant.
Half of this would come from the Texas Water Development Board, and the other half would be matching funds. Wallace previously asked the Commissioners Court for the matching funds of $125,000, but was turned down last week.
The treatment plant would allow the water suppliers to stop relying on the drying Trinity Aquifer, and, they hope, at the same time avoid the cost of at least $3.50 per thousand gallons fa* treated water projected by the Guadalupe-Bianco River Authority.
