of the underground water, you cannot bury a tank any other way than how they say," he added.
The original plans had no cost estimate for the tanks because the school district had planned on moving the old tanks themselves. However, no cost for excavating the hole that the tanks would be buried in was in the plans either. Cost in the new plans for the fuel system, including architect-engineers fees, is estimated at $53,250.
“In the original plans we had no estimate for utilities because usually it is some minimal amount that you just add into building costs. The sites originally discussed were not this present site, but the place where the MHMR I Mental Health-Mental Retardation) workshop is now. There utilities were already in place and some paved areas were also there," Cruine said in a telephone interview.
The present plans show $55,707 for utilities, including architect-engineer fees.
The current planned site, the fill area beyond the baseball field at New Braunfels High School, would place the building on solid rock, which accounts for the high cost of bringing in utilities. Blasting has to be done to dig a trench.
The lines also cannot be connected to the present lines at the high school because the area is downhill and sewage would have to be pumped up to the level of the high school to make it drain properly.
The architect also said the original buildng included only three bays while this one contains four. The original square footage was 6,<>00 sqare feet, while alternate one has 7,4(H) sqare feet and alternate two has 6,826 square feet.
However the cost difference between alternate one and two, which mostly comes from the diffenence in square footage, is small: alternate one costs $309,470, and alternate two costs $292,395.
Board member Garland Lloyd suggested that the administration take the next two weeks before the next regular board meeting to explore other sites, even buying other property within the city limits of New Braunfels for a possible alternate site. If another site can be found with utilities in place, the cost of the land might In* less than the cost of the utilities at the present site, Lloyd was hoping.
Trustee Gene Scott agreed that another piece of land should be consiidered. He thought it was unlikely that a better site would be found, as a higher land cost would wipe out whatever .savings was made in utilities.
Superintendent Charles Birdberry felt that the cost of utilities would be made up when they build the vocational education building back there. Also the fact that school buses are used a lot for high .school extracurricular activities makes the high school site a savings in gas iii many cases.
“The problem we are going to get into (in looking for another piece of property) is anything close enough to have utilities already on it will be expensive. And anything far enough out to be cheap will not have utilities on it," Bradberry summarized.
But the board decided to try to find a five-acre tract of land that would fulfill the needs of a transportation center.
The only action item in the meeting was approval of a teacher appraisal instrument that met House Bill 72 standards, and appointment of 17 second-party teacher appraisers.
Columned from Rage 1A
Other White House sources, discussing the .speech on condition they not be identified by name, said Reagan would reiterate his commitment to a modified “flat tax" system as the best means of simplifying the present federal income tax.
It was a year ago, in his State of the Union address, that Reagan called for "a plan for action to simplify the entire tax code so all taxpayers, big and small, are treated more fairly."
After nearly a year of study, Regan, who was then secretary okthe treasury, produced a proposal for eliminating most brackets in the progressive tax system, and most deductions as well.

at the Jan. 28 Council meeting, called for immediate attention to such an ordinance.
Council is expected to decide at its next meeting which group will review the possibility of enacting a billboard ordinance.
— learned that Hartmann wants the group to file a formal complaint against the city for selling some Code of Ordinance books. Shands told the group that the city has sold some of the Planning Commission books. Apparantly, the city had recalled the books to place updated pages in
them, Shands said, and instead, sold them for $300 each.
Shands said the city would have to order a minimum of 50 at a cost of $4,000. He added that he is looking into getting the loose-leaf books reproduced locally.
“I’m going to write a letter and I want this commission to file a formal complaint," Hartmann said. “I want our books back.
"We get phone calls quite often and we need (the book). It’s ridiculous. I’ve never heard of a city Planning and Zoning Commission without personal access to a code of ordinances book."

pretrial appeals of challenges to indictments, such as that filed by Mattox.
“But for what the majority of the voters of this state did on Nov. 4,1980 ... I would not hesitate for one moment to vote to grant (Mattox’s) petition for discretionary review,” said Teague.
To go ahead with the trial before determining the indictment question “defies logic and common sense," he said. “The present state of the law ... is truly injudicious.*'
Teague added that a post-trial decision saying the indictment was
faulty would make the trial “nothing more than a dress rehearsal.”
Teague did not discuss the merits of Mattox’s motion to throw out the indictment. He said only that the motion should have received full review.
Mattox was accused in September 1983 of threatening to block studs submitted by the Houston law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski.
The indictment alleges that the threat was made by telephone to a member of the law firm in an at tempt to keep the firm from trying to question Mattox’s sister, Dallas lawyer Janice Mattox, in another case.

indication that the president has in any way deviated from those,"
Stockman was about midway through his testimony defending Reagan’s $974 billion budget — and its proposed $30 billion increase in defense spending - when he launched his solo charge against the military establishment.
He told the panel he was tired of hearing congressional complaints about the size of Reagan’s military budget without any specific recommendations.
