cials took the vehicle count east of Hunter Road and New Braunfels Street, he said.
Although no injury accidents have been reported in Gruene, a few minor, low-impact fender-benders have taken place, Ferguson said.
Under the proposal, vehicles coming from Farm-to-Market 306 would have to veer onto New Braunfels Street to access businesses on a two-block area of Hunter Road.
“There are a number of commercial vehicles that come down the (Hunter) road,” said Mary Jane Nalley, who operates Gruene Hall with Pat Molak.
Nalley said she was concerned about trucks not being able to negotiate the near 360-degree turn from Hunter Road on to New Braunfels Street.
Under the proposal, that sharp turn would have been even more precarious by traffic coming from the opposite direction and being forced onto New Braunfels Street along with commercial trucks.
John Paine, owner of The Cottage on New Braunfels Street in Gruene, spoke in favor of the one-w ay issue, saying pedestrian traffic was a problem and that accidents were imminent.
“I don't want it to be me who runs over a baby buggy,” he said.
Resident Larry Phillips spoke in opposition
“Some fool is going to walk out
on that street, no matter if it’s one or two way,” Phillips said.
Paula Rothe, a property owner in Gruene, said she was against the proposal because it would compound traffic and block a parking lot at New Braunfels Street and Hunter Road.
“Hunter Road is 20 miles long, and you’re going to make the last block of it a one-way?” Rothe asked the board. “I don’t care which way you make the traffic go — it’s not going to stop the congestion.”
Jonathan and DeAnne Lewis, who operate Call of the Wild on New Braunfels Street, said they favored safety in general over the one-way street issue.
“Something needs to be done,” said Jonathan Lewis, who added he was concerned about pedestrian issues but a one-way road was not necessarily the answer.
Although Paine, who has operated The Cottage with his wife, Betty, for some four years, was asked by board members if he brought the proposal to councilwoman Kotylo, Paine declined to confirm if he had.
“Everyone's been saying it was me, but it was Susan Phillips who brought this to the board,” Paine said.
Kotyl o said she had been in contact with Paine about the issue.
“I told him (by phone) ‘lf you’re really interested in the issue, you need to go down there (to city hall),’” Kotylo said.
Phillips was unavailable for comment Thursday evening

Beanie Babies are the hot item for this Christmas. Not only are they popular with children, but adults are collecting them. There is a demand of 1$ million a month although the company is only making 2 million
According to Concetta Chilek. a salesperson at the store, the teddy bears were the first to go.
“We also sell retired ones and the rare peace hear, which is very popular,’’ Chilek said.
The reason the Beanie Babies are so popular this season is people are
trying to get the new ones before they go out of style. The Beanie Babies have been selling for several years now, first starting in the northern part of the United States. The Gruene General Store has had the Beanie Babies since the summer.
“We used to get one shipment a month, but because of the growing popularity we have been selling out
of them pretty fast,” Chilek said, “People will usually buy between two to IO beanie babies each.” The beanie babies are sold for more than $6 each.
The employees of Gruene General Store said there would be more than enough buyers for the special Princess Diana teddy bear Beanie Babies and the other Beanie Babies.
