West Side residents to hammer out concerns with city
By LARRY ROWE Staff Writer
Residents of New Braunfels’ west side will attend a second meeting about neighborhood concerns two weeks after a town meeting brought several problems to the surface, a citizen organizer says.
“Whatever happens in this neighborhood will eventually infiltrate into the other areas of the community,” said Stella Rodriguez, referring specifically to criminal mischief in the area around parts of Katy Street.
Rodriguez, who helped arrange the second meeting between city officials and citizens, said it is tentatively scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday at the Holy Family Church on Hidalgo Ave.
After the first meeting, neighbors noticed some immediate attention to the area by city and New Braunfels Uulilies staff.
“Even the children noticed it,” Rodriguez said. “They told me. Mom, NBU has been here and we’ve seen them putting up lights'."
She said Safe City Commission staff will attend the meeting so that citizens can start a neighborhood safety program.
Some residents of a Katy Street apartment complex, who would not give their names for safety reasons, said they need more attention from the police.
“The people that live here, they don’t fight, they don’t steal, but it all comes from the outside,” said one woman. She said a group of juveniles seem to cause much of the problem, which includes loitering, fighting and graffiti.
“I don’t know if they’re a gang, but they’re always fighting together.” she said.Both she and some male residents of the complex said police response time to their calls is long, and the problem is usually gone by the lime police arrive.
“That’s the only thing we need — for the police to keep an eye on the place.” one man said.
New Braunfels Police Chief C.R. “Dick” Headen said the police
always respond as quickly as possible to calls from the apartments, adding that the department is understaffed and police calls are heavy this time of year.
He said the residents there must help the police if they want better results.
“We go down there and what they’ve talked about is already gone and nobody will talk to us," he said. “They hide and don’t want to get involved."
Headen also said he believes the city does not have a "full-blown" gang problem yet.
