Edwards Continued from Pag* I But other members felt the district would be unable to present the plan to legislators because of internal disputes. “There isn’t a snowball’s chance ... this will get passed until the Aquifier (board) is united and we all get together and make up a plan," said Jack Ohlrich, EUWD representative from Comal County. And if this plan has no chance of passing, there is no reason to spend $252,000 on a lobbyist. While some members felt spending the $252,000 would be a “wafted effort,” Gilbert Vazquez, legal counsel for the distria. challenged the district o start taking the legislation more seriously. “I don’t like to generate fees just to generate fees,” he said, “but is the district going to forefront the effort or will it sit on the sidelines? (Because) all other efforts have failed,” he said. In addition to opposing the lobbyist allotment, the district chose not to discuss any changes or amendments to the Drought Management Plan that was designed to reduce pumping demands and maintain spring flow in the Aquifer for endangered species. Obituaries “The Drought Management Plan cannot be enforced if no one can define what it is,” said Russell Masters, general manager of EUWD. The plan is used for conditions like the 1950s drought which was much more severe than the drought of 1989. “If the District chose to correspond the plan with the 1950s draft, then we can make the changes and have it taken care of,” he said. Some of the proposals in the Drought Management Plan include modifying rate structures where water rates increase for users at peak pumping times; enforcing a mandatory leak detection program for each purveyor, requiring purveyors to have mandatory plumbing fixtures; and providing mandatory water-efficient landscape design that would use plants with minimal water requirements. The plan also calls for the provision of economic incentives for industries that implement conservation by using an inverted rate structure in which the rates increase according to the amount of water a business uses. As the meeting came to a close, Zuniga told members the next time the district met they should “crack op>en the books” to better understand what they were voting for next time.

Spears said consulting fees and the salary fa the enagy manager will be taken from the district's utility budget because he contractually guarantees that the immediate savings will exceed the total expanses for the program. “It’s a no-risk situation,” Spears said. “We think our program is an investment in the future."

We’ve pmt betta time clocks. We've put better micro-processors and all those kinds of things,” he said. “The next laya that is left are the people kind of resource changes. “I think everybody could get excited about saving those dollars if we could place those dollars back into the people and resources that are UPHOLSTERY CLEANING hae,” he said. “This is a people program, not a mechanical program,” Spears said. The management plan will establish accountability for enagy usage at each campus, he said. “Such accountability is in a very positive spirit that motivates principals and staff to contribute to the success of the program. A major way to positively motivate is through the use of a recognition program that reinfaces the district’s energy goals.” The program will save enagy cost in the areas of electricity, natural gas, wata and sewer, he said. “The largest consuma of enagy in your school buildings is na betting, not air conditioning, but lighting,” he said. “In a typical Texas school the largest consuma of energy is lighting. “Our program is absolutely na going to tampa with the comfort of the occupants of your building,” he said. "The irony of our program is we will actually improve the environmental condition in your district.” TEimrS CLEANING till •{VV SERVICES 129-1322 ARE YOU ALLERGIC TO MOUNTAIN CEDAR OR OTHER POLLENS?
