Former Mayor represents city in suit
By LARRY ROWE SUR WriUr
With one dissenting vote, New Braunfels City Council members voted 4-1 Monday to pay former Mayor Doug Miller to represent them in negotiations over the Edwards Aquifer.
Now that the council has approved it, the S55 per hour plus expenses is expected to be split between the city of New Braunfels and New Braunfels Utilities, with possible help from the Comal County Commissioners Court.
Regardless of how it is split, the amount will come from citizens’ tax and utility payments.
“We are getting to a very critical and very consuming phase of this issue, and therefore it was becoming unfair to my business my partner and my family to continue as we have in the past,” Miller said.
He said he has donated more than 2,000 hours over the past four and a half years to these negotiations, in which Comal County wants to ensure that western aquifer users such as San Antonio will not let the Comal and San Marcos springs run dry.
