Construction delays set back opening of library addition
Comal County Commissioners Court
By DAVID DEKUNDER
Unexpected delays in construction have pushed the opening of the new 2,000-foot addition to the Tye Preston Memorial Library at least two more weeks.
Jim Campise, president of the library board, said the board had hoped to finish up the addition this month but circumstances have caused the delay.
“Early February is what we are hoping for,” Campise said.
Campise said workers are scheduled to knock down the wall between the library and the addition on Friday and Saturday.
The library will be closed on those days.
The library will then reopen until Jan. I.
“We will close it for the entire month of January to move books, new shelves and get the carpet installed,” Campise said.
Despite the delay, Campise said the project is still on budget.
The addition was funded through
revenue from the Tye Preston Memorial Brick Parade project, which raised $100,000 by selling bricks or granite blocks to individuals or businesses.
The bricks and granite blocks to be placed in the main pathway leading to the library will bear the names of the donors.
' The new addition will be used as a meeting room, study room and expanded children’s area.
When it is completed, the children’s reading area will double its size.
Council to consider cuts in electric rates
By ABE LEVY
The New Braunfels City Council is scheduled Monday night to consider reducing electric rates for all New Braunfels Utilities customers.
The NBU Board of Trustees approved the plan on Nov. 26 at its regular meeting in light of lower power prices offered by the utility’s wholesale supplier.
The proposed decrease must be approved by three readings of City Council and would mean a reduction of $2.21 on an average monthly bill of 1,000 kilowatts.
. The decrease would be proportional to larger commercial and industrial customers, officials said.
If council approves the measure in three successive readings, the earliest the proposed rates would take effect, is Jan. 27 for the February billing cycle.
The Lower Colorado River Authority sells the power to NBU, which expects to save up to $1.8
The proposed decrease, which must bo approved by the City Council in three readings, would moan a reduction of $2.21 on the average monthly electric bill._
