have to answer during the coming year will be how to come up with the additional monies needed to operate the police and fire departments.
“Myself, the mayor and city council are well aware of and recognize the needs of the police department. We will have to address those problems,” Michie said.
Both Boeck and Michie were quick to point out that adding patrolmen costs much more to the city initially than just their salaries. New officers must be provided with an equipped patrol car, uniforms, firearms, radios and fringe benefits. Michie said initial costs to the city for new patrolmen are roughly 130,000 per man.
Michie also pointed out that property taxes here, set at 28 cents per $100 evaluation, brings in $1.2 million annually while the police department’s budget alone is well above that. New Braunfels has a low property tax base in comparision to many comparable communities in the state.
Hoping to help the department cope with rising crime and manpower shortages, Boeck has prepared a manual that details means of implementing long term community involvement through a crime commission. The booklet is entitled “Crime Control Plan” and a copy has been made available to the city manager and members of council for review and is available for public reading at the Dittlinger Memorial Library.
Boeck formulated the manual from several crime prevention studies and is similar to a program currently being used in Victoria. The basic idea, according to the chief, is that a crime commission comprising community leaders set goals and divide the town into regions based on neighborhoods or geographic lines and form subcommittees in each area that will also set goals and discuss and
monitor criminal activities or problems and then report to the commission who would then relay those findings to the department to aid in devising solutions to each area’s specific needs.
Boeck said such a commission would be virtually cost free to the taxpayers, other than the cost of their time to volunteer to actively work on such a commission.
“The idea is to get the community involved and enthusiastic about crime prevention,” Boeck said. “To work, the whole community would have to get involved. We would need the participation of the Chamber of Commerce, the schools, churches, elected officials and the police force to come together.” He said that public awareness and participation is one of the most valuable tools in crime prevention today.
Michie said that he has reviewed Boeck’s proposal for a commission here and that he has spoken with the city manager in Victoria concerning their program and said that such a program in New Braunfels could be very effective. “I’m very much in favor of the chief’s proposal. I understand Victoria’s program is very effective and I think we need to get into such a program,” he said in a phone interview from his home Friday evening.
The chief also pointed to a relation of narcotics and burglaries. He said control of one can help cut down on crime overall. He said one of the best things to come out of 1986 was the campaign to teach children to “say notodrugs.”
“I hope that advertising continues.” Boeck said. “Here you had the president’s wife. celebrities and athletes actively making teenagers aware of the dangers of drugs. It took us 20 years to admit that our country had a drug problem and it’s going to take another 20 years to correct it. I hope that the promotion to teach the children to say no to drugs is not a trendy or flash-in-the pan thing.”

mendation to require a permanent flow was based on the needs of fish and wildlife in the area below the dam. “Basically, it’s for fish and wildlife protection,” said David Curtis. assistant supervisor for the wildlife department’s ecological services field office in Fort Worth. “Specifically, the recommendations are to maintain the protection of the fish population.”
The fish and wildlife department presented comments and recommendations concerning the proposed hydroelectric plant when GBRA submitted a license application to FERC. Curtis said those recommendations were based on the results of an instream flow analysis which is a model of fish environments.
FERC set the minimum stream flow at 90 cubic feet per second, considerably lower than average stream
flows. The license, granted by FERC’s commissioners Dec. 4, states that GBRA “shall discharge from the Canyon Dam Project a continuous minimum flow of 90 cubic feet per second, as measured immediately downstream from the project powerhouse, to protect and to enhance fish and wildlife resources in the Guadalupe River.”
Welsch said the river authority basically wants clarification of what he said are contridlcting requirements in the license. Opening statements of the license explain that the concerns of residents opposed to the hydroelectic project are unfounded because the relenses from the dam will not be altered. Part of the license states that: “The project proposed for licensing is a run-of-river facility ... Therefore, GBRA’s operation of the hydroelectric project must
