Recycling effort begins
New Braunfels citizens can pitch in to save the planet’s resources when a city recycling program for large metals takes effect this Wednesday, Dec. 11.
The new recycling center will be located at the Old Dickies property next to the City Municipal Building, 424 South Casten Ave.
Citizens will be able to drive into the fenced area and unload large recyclables, according to April Goldsmith, the city’s special projects director.
These will include all metals, such as refrigerators, stoves, car engines and mattresses only with innerspring s. Citizens can even throw old oil filters into an additional container.
“What we would like to see is that if this is very successful, then perhaps the idea of doing a curb
side recycling program would be feasible for the city,” Goldsmith said.
She said such a program was previously determined to be too expensive by the City Council. “This will help us to guage the interest in the city for a recycling program.”
She added that by January, the modified recycling program will also be taking old car batteries.
The recycling site will be open from 8 a.rn. to I pjn., Wednesday through Saturday. Citizens are urged not to unload anything outside of the fenced area, according to a statement released by the city.
“There is no charge for disposing such items in their proper containers, however, there is a penalty of $1,000 for littering and improper dumping,” the statement reads.

School district to approve redistricting plan
By ROBERT STEWART Staff Writer
Officials of New Braunfels Independent School District will present a redistricting plan for board approval Tuesday, Dec. IO at the Education Center, located on Mill Street.
“The disproportionate population growth in the school district for its single-member districts has created an imbalance of the number of individuals residing within each of the five single-member districts,” said Tim Hager, consultant with the Gibson Research Group which prepared the plan.
The overall population in District Two, which is located south of Interstate 35 and extends into Guadalupe County, has increased by 85.2 percent since the last census in 1980. District Five, north of town has increased by 39.8 percent. District One, along Interstate 35 has increased by 15.5 percent, while the population in Districts three and four fell by 3.8 percent and 1.5 percent, respectively.
District Four is bordered by U.S. 81, the Guadalupe River, and the southern downtown area. District Three encompasses the northwest part of town inside Loop 337.
The district must redraw district boundaries based on census data each IO years to comply with an obligation under the Education Code and the United States Constitution to keep single-member district boundaries of approximately equal population density and to insure minority representation, said Cobby Caputo, attorney for NBISD.
“In 1980, minorities made up 34.6 percent of the NBISD,” Hager said. “In 1990, minorities made up 32.9 percent. Although minorities are down percentage-wise, in actual numbers there was an increase of 1551 in
Hispanic population in the NBISD.”
Hager added that in 1980 there were 24 Hispanic residents in the Guadalupe County portion of the NBISD. Based on the 1990 census, that number had increased to 759, he said.
The plan will realign districts to create a Hispanic representation of 59.1 percent in District One and 59.5 percent in District Four, Hager said.
After the plan is approved by the board, it will be submitted to the Justice Department for approval, Brad-berry said.
