within the department. “Taxes being what taxes are, we’ve got to have a better idea and this thing will fly,” he said.
“If we can set up a central committee (SCC) of proven community leaders and can set goals and pursue them we can make our city a safer city,” Boeck stated.
According to Boeck, similar programs in cities such as Victoria have been highly successful in cutting crime. “We’ve got to do something on crime here. The police department can’t do it alone,” he said.
According to 1986 police statistics, 2,237 criminal incident reports were filed last year. Assaults were up 53 percent, robbery and larceny reports were up 22 percent and burglaries were up almost 40 percent. 1,266
larceny incidents, which include motor vehicle burglaries, and 536 burglary incidents in 1986 reflect the city’s biggest impact crimes.
“When your neighbor’s being burglarized that’s your problem, too,” Boeck told council. He said people who use New Braunfels’ close proximity to San Antonio as a reason for the increase in crime use it as a “crutch”, pointing to statistics that show most of local crimes are committed by local residents.
Mayor Ed Sciantarelli said, “It is a good program. I don’t see why it won’t work.”
City Manager Joe Michie urged the council to begin forming the central panel. “Let’s get started. Don’t put it off, now is the time to do it,” he said.
One of the goals Boeck hopes to ac
complish through the crime commission is having 90 percent of New Braunfels residences within a neighborhood watch program.
Council will be charged with the task of appointing persons to serve on the SCC who would serve a two-year term under the chief’s plan. An executive director would head the commission.
Boeck said the commission could function virtually cost free. “I don’t see a lot of cost. The executive director may need to be salaried, but hopefully not in the first year,” Boeck stated, hoping that the first director can come from within the retired community to help get the program “off the ground”.
The chief pointed out that now is the perfect time for the city to actively pursue formation of the committee because of necessitated cutbacks

all of the expenses considering the majority of people using the health service are citizen's of New Braunfels,” he said.
Other commissioners supported Gark’s stand on the split of the food-handier permits. “I can sympathize with the city’s financial problems because I look at it everyday in our budget,” said Hyde Jacobs, Precinct 4 commissioner.
Erben later reported to commissioners the largest January increase in patients utilizing the clinic in four years, with some 450 persons being treated last
month. She said that nearly two-and-a-half to every one person treated was a resident of New Braunfels.
Though Erben pointed out that most health clinics are often joint efforts between a county and city, state law does not require city government to provide funding for health clinic services.
Erben also reported that the department had no problems receiving payments required for services during the first week of the new fee schedule. “Everyone required to pay last week did, though most were paying the lower (end) of the sliding fee scale,” she said.
