A representative of the financial advisers for Alamo Area Housing Finance Corporation Thursday will speak to commissioner’s court about Comal County joining them.
The commissioners’ meeting is at 9 a m. in the Courthouse.
Bill Carpenter with Fitter Peabody will give the presentation. I.ast meeting a builder came before the commissioners court asking for the county to reactivate the Comal County Housing Finance Corporation that existed from 1980-83.
The corporation was created under the 1979 Texas Housing Finance Act, which allowed governmental entities to set up finance corporations to provide low-interest morgages to low and middle income people who have never owned a home before.
The law also provides that a builder can buy the tax-exempt bonds to finance their building. However the by-laws of the Alamo Area Housing Finance Corporation limit the builders of multi-family units to structures no larger than four-plexes, Clyde Booth with Lumberman Investment Corporation said.
This would not allow the builder who wanted the corporation to be reactivated to qualify because he was building an apartment complex.
Booth, who will also speak to the commissioner on the Alamo Area Bond Program said that his company wished to buy $2 million of the $20 million bond program.
“We are trying to get Kendall and Comal counties to get into the program which is a very good deal. It creates jobs in the building industry and suppliers of building products, and it helps people own their first home. We have a builder in Kendal County interested and one in Comal. The interest rate is 1^ percent below the FRA rate,” Booth said.
The problem for Comal County creating the corporation by itself is that the county has to prove it can provide a pool of 300 morgages a year w hich would be difficult > to get an A bond rating for the low-interest loans. Carpenter explained.
The lesser populated counties are left in a situation where they cannot get the bonds sold unless they band together. The law provides for counties grouping together to form the fmalice corporation as long as they are in the same planning area," Carpenter explained When AACOG’s housing finance corporation was forming Comal County was invited in, but Comal turned it down because the Comal Count) corporation already existed and the board had not decided it wished to go into the multi-family market, which the .Alamo Area corporation allow ed.

Farm Bureau donation goes to fire departments
Two area volunteer fire departments were given $150 each recently from the Texas P'arm Bureau Insurance Companies.
The P'arm Bureau gave the money to the Bracken and New Braunfels volunteer departments as an expression of thanks for their work on the fire earlier this month at the home of Melvin Kreusler. Route IO, Box 32.
The money will be used for the
departments’ loss prevention programs.
Texas F'arrn Bureau companies pay fire departments the $150 when a department works at a fire in rural areas, and the property is insured bv the Bureau.
The insurance company believes fire departments have contributed to reduce the amount of loss involved bv fire and more importantly, have helped prevent fires.
