the $500,000 grant from the Community Capital Fund of the Texas Community Development Program to build economic development in the city.
Estimated cost of the project is $1 million.
The Texas Department of Commerce has anywhere from $9 to $10 million available and should look favorably on this project because it will generate new jobs for the community, Sobnsaid.
If NBU is unable to get the grant, “we (cai still) plan to put it into process and take it at whatever level that might be," Sohn said.
“It may take several years but we have over $1 million in construction (hinds) that are going rn contribute directly to this project," he said.
City Manager Paul Orohman said he believes the city “had a good opportunity" to get the grant.

Council OKs new paddleboats, lockers
By KATHRYN SCHOEMER Staff Writer
In a 7-0 vote this week, New Braunfels City Council approved bids for new pontoon paddle-boats and coin-operated lockers for the Parks and Recreation Department.
City Manager Paul Grohman said the original intent of the bids was “to take vendor profits into capital implements.”
While the purchase price of the equipment may be expensive, the city will reap profits by serving park patrons, he said.
The Parks and Recreation Department and the Finance Department
recommended the lowest bid of $830 each for 25 aluminum pontoon pad-dlcboats purchased by Floyd L. Mahan, Manufacturing Co. and $17,202 for 200 coin operated lockers by American Security Systems.
Some of the advantages of the new paddleboats include a low surface drag which would make paddling easier for people fighting an uphill current.
With these new boats “we’fp, hoping that this activity will open up to older people,” said David Whatley, New Braunfels parks and recreation director.
“You rarely see someone in their
40s and 50s in paddleboats (right now) because it's difficult to paddle up the Comal River,” he said.
Councilmcmbcrs said the aluminum paddle boats were higher in quality and easier to maintain that boats used in the past.
“I've ridden both paddleboats and (these boats) may be higher in price, but they’re better in superiority,” said Mayor Pro- Tem Chapa Jr.
Other councilmcmbers include Mayor Amo Becker, Loraine Kraft, Eddie Temple, Bill Arnold, Clinton Brandt and James Ooodbrcad.
The Parks and Recreation Depart
ment also will be using coin-operated lockers in the future.
“We've been using the open basket system for decades where we receive billfolds (and other personal belongings),” Whatley said. “This has not been a problem but it's brought to light that we are responsible.” Having the lockers will make everyone responsible for his own contents and “save us from hiring basket attendants,” he said.
Approximately $5,000-$6,000 will be saved in labor costs by not employing the attendants to watch over the park patrons’ personal belongings, Whatley said.
Interstate 35 expansion hearing is tonight
By STEPHANIE FERGUSON Newt Editor
Persons interested in the expansion of Interstate 35 from Garden Ridge to the south side of New Braunfels are encouraged to attend a public hearing tonight at 7:30.
Tile public will have an opportunity to ask state highway officials questions and make comments at the hearing at the Rock Hill Gospel Church cafeteria, located adjacent to the Interstate 35 West frontage road directly behind the west rest area north of FM
“This is the opportunity for the public to have input as to their feelings on this project, be it pro or con,” said Resident Engineer Bobbie Hasert of the State Department of Highways and Public Transportation.
The section of road being discussed is 7.7 miles of Interstate 35 in Comal County and 1.1 miles in Guadalupe County between FM 3009 to Loop 337 in south New Braunfels.
Proposed changes for that section of road consists of constructing a new
interchange at Weiderstein Road and changing some portions of the two-way frontage roads to one-way.
The 8.8-mile stretch will be expanded to three lanes each way with cement median barriers being constructed. Changes also are expected around the Garden Ridge Pottery area to ease traffic congestion.
Additional right-of-way is required for the project, but no houses or business will be displaced.
Expanding Interstate 35 from Loop 337 to the Hays County line has not
yet been funded.
Verbal and written comments from the public regarding the project are requested. Comments may be presented either at the hearing or within IO days after the hearing. Written statements and other exhibits may be submitted to the State Department of Highways and Public Transportation, Supervising Resident Engineer' office, 2940 U.S. 81 West, New Braunfels, Texas 78130, but must be received no later than IO days after the public hearing tonight.
NBHS’ Tilly named a Smoking National Merit finalist
cation because he said it will benefit economic development in the city.
The tennis ranch has agreed to be annexed into the city limits if NBU extend the sewer lines, which will provide the city with more money to put into tourism and cultural events, he said.
Currently, John Newcombe Tennis Ranch charges only a 6-percent occupancy tax to their customers because they are outside city limits. If the ranch were annexed, they would charge an additional 7-percent hotel-motel room occupancy tax that would go directly to New Braunfels, he said.
The sewage extension would also build the tax base in the city, thereby increasing the taxable value of New Braunfels property, he said.
Councilmembera voting for the gram application were Mayor Pro-Tem Ramon Chapa Jr., Loraine Kraft, Eddie Temple, Bill Arnold, James Goodbread Jr. and Clinton Brandt. Mayor Amo Becker votes in tie situations.

Arrangements are pending at Doep-penschmidt Funeral Home for Ella Harris of New Braunfels who died today, Feb. 13, 1991, at Southwest Texas Methodist Hospital in San Antonio. She was 77.
With many achievements under her belt. New Braunfels High School senior Allison Tilly is proudest right now of being named a National Merit Finalist.
The daughter of Dr. Michael and Diane Tilly, Allison is being considered for one of 1,800 national merit scholarships for $2,000. Seniors awarded finalist standing represent fewer than one percent of American high school seniors.
The vice president of the NMS Corporation said, “You have met the rigorous requirements for Finalist standing in the 1991 National Merit Scholarship Program...of which you may be genuinely proud.”
“I am very excited,” said Tilly. “This is the only thing I wanted to achieve for my high school career." In addition to earning national merit finalist stature, she is, for the second year, the editor of “Writer’s Block,” the high school literary magazine. Just recently she finished competing in her second year of Academic Decathlon. In regional competition, Tilly took a gold medal in the arts and two bronze medals in speech and

At the time the ordinance passee then-Precinct 4 County Commission er Clyde Jacobs, who is a smoker balked at the idea the city coult restrict smoking in the courthouse.

Schwab, who was erne of the original founders of the Canyon Lake Volunteer Fire Department in 1963, said commissioners were searching for board members who would be accountable to their duties.
“We were real careful, because they arc going to have an awful lot of authority on making these budgets for the EMS and the fire district. They arc going to hold the purse strings,” he said.
“I think the most rewarding thing about this was the number of just outstanding people that made themselves available for this service,” Evans said.
