The inmate crews, from the state facility at Lockhart, work 12-hour days, seven days a week, Scheel said. They are supervised at all time by armed guards.
“I want to be very clear with people. These are not axe murderers on these work crews,” Scheel said.
Officials will begin the project on city-owned land so property owners will be able to see the scope of the project, Scheel said.
The work will begin at Ijoop 337 next to the New Braunfels Little league fields.REBOUNDS/From 1A
the wages he earns to New Braunfels Rebounds.
Recently, the only help Phelps has received is from 75-year-old Richard Humphreys as he works to repair flood damage in the home of Mary Bond, 629 Riverside Drive.
He has his own explanation about why the two volunteers, who have logged more than 2,100 hours repairing local homes, are performing their tasks with either sporadic or no help at all.
“The community doesn’t realize there are still homes to be rebuilt,” Phelps said. “And once they have done that (volunteer to rebuild flooded homes), they don’t want to do it again. Its dirty work.
“We get a few volunteers once in a while," Phelps said. “But it is not like it was in 1998.”
Phelps has been helping flood victims since 1989, “because nobody else would
“There’s a need. I have learned about rebuilding houses as I have gone along, read books, and talked to people that knew what to do.”
Since July, New Braunfels Rebounds has finished rebuilding about seven homes. Phelps said he is sure the program would have more homes signed up if the city and PEMA were not planning to buy out some of them through the federal Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.
Phelps and Humphreys have finished rebuilding one room at 629 Riverside Drive.
They first had to cut out a portion of a wall at the rear of the house to allow 46.5 inches of Guadalupe River floodwater out of the house before they could strip out wallboard, tear out kitchen cabinets and begin the arduous task of cleaning up in the 2,700 square foot structure.
They have nearly finished replacing wallboard and have replaced electrical boxes, and they need at least two volunteers to help them hang cabinets in the kitchen.
“Tell ’em we need help." Humphreys said as he went back to work.

for all persons who bicycle.”
The narrower, 10-foot traffic lanes the bike lanes would necessitate would tend to slow or calm motor vehicle traffic and make the roadway safer for motorists and bicycles, he said.
Board (’hair Stinson Worley was skeptical.
“I can’t envision safety being enhanced when you squeeze these elements together," Worley said.
Some of those who attended were concerned about safety, but most were concerned about parking.
“I can’t understand not being allowed to park in front of my own home,” said resident Gary Penshorn.
James Avery, who lives in the 1400 block of West Mill, expressed a similar concern.
“I haven’t seen that much biking going on. I think you’re putting out a lot of people for a small number of people — and for something we don’t need,” Avery said.Now is the time to get fit for the New Year!No Contracts No Initiation Fees
