County commissioners okay bond refinancing
by DAVID MAY Staff Writer
Taking the advice of their financial advisor, Comal County Commissioners approved Thursday the refinancing of revenue bonds used to build the county jail and courthouse-
initial reports showed the county saving 5500,000 through refinancing at lower interest rates.
Bond counsel Floyd Westerman said final tests show the savings to be 6609,000.
1963 jail bonds totaling $3.9 million and 1965 courthouse bonds fw approximately 15 million were sold at greater interest rates than the cur
rent rate of 6.32 percent. According to Westerman, bonds are allowed two refinancing opportunities.
Monies received by the county will be used to subscribe for special U.S. government securities, called SLUGS (State and Local Government Securities), bought in amounts and scheduled to mature in such a manner to pay off the principal and interest of the refunding bonds as they mature. First City Bank in Austin will be the escrow agent for the securities.
Commissioners also took action authorizing agreements with the Austin-based bank as well as Frost National Bank of San Antonio, who
will be the paying agent. Westerman said those facilities offer the lowest service charges for such services.
At the time the proposed refinancing was brought before commissioners during a special meeting in December. Judge Fred Dark said the refunding was something the county can’t afford not to do.” Closing date for the refinancing is Jan. 29 and notice must be given 20 days in advance, according to Westerman.

Four persons injured in rainy day mishaps
ay SARAH DUKE SfaH Writer
Garden Ridge officials are considering annexing less than two miles of property south and west of the city In an effort to close a gap between this rural municipality and the metropolis of San Antonio
Charles Elia, Garden Ridge plane tag and zoning commission chairman, said during a council meeting Wednesday that petitions have been gathered from people living in the area supporting the annexation move. “We’ve got to verify the number of signatures on the petition and the number of people living In the area,’’ he said. adding state law requires 50.1 percent of the registered voters In the proposed annexation area sign a petition requesting annexation
Garden Ridge, with a population of leas than 1,000, cannot annex any area without being petitioned by the residents of a particular area.
“This is a voluntary action on the part of the people, we’re not forcing anyone Into tills,’’ Ells said. The annexation will move the city boundaries against San Antonio’s city limits In some areas. The area to be annexed includes strips along PM
2252 south of the city's current boundary to Hour Glass Road and strips of property 700 feet wide that run within 70 feet of Bat Cave Road southwest of the city.
Elia said the city intentionally avoided annexing Bat Cave Road because it Is in such poor condition. “We’re going wait until the county takes care of that. “ he said.
Public hearings have been scheduled for the annexations The find hearings will be 7:30 p.m. Feb. 3 at Garden Ridge Lutheran Church. The second hearing will be 7 p m Feb. 4 at Garden Ridge City Hall The city council will vote on the annexation during its March 3 meeting.
“I think the thing is on track.’’ Elia said He added that at the public hearings, the planning and zoning commission will present a 60-day plan and a one-year plan for the area to be annexed.
The city council also discussed city taxes during the Wednesday meeting. The council voted 3-1 to continue with property taxes at their present rate of IO cents per HOO valuation instead of reducing them one-half of a percent in accordance with new state provisions.
