New group seeking boat ramp answers
By SANORA JACKSON Staff writer
Canyon Lake residents have rallied to the cause and will attempt to take action to keep eight area boat ramps open.
A standing room only crowd filled the meeting room of the Pedemales Electric Cooperative district office in Settler Tuesday night for an organizational meeting of the Canyon Lake Concerned Citizens.
Their aim is to work with Comal County officials and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to find a way to keep die boat ramps open.
The license for Comal County to operate the ramp in Canyon Lake Village subdivision expired Dec. 31, and another is scheduled to expire Feb. 9 in Canyon Lake Village West.
The problem seems to be that neither the county nor the Corps is willing to accept the liability related to the operation of the ramps. County commissionres have met with Canyon reservoir manager Phil Parsley, and the commissioners indicated that they were leaning toward not renewing any of the permits because of the liability factor.
Approximately 35 people attended the first meeting of the citizens group. “Our main purpose was to get volunteers to work on several committees,” said the group’s spokesperson, Sonja Patton. She and her husband, Doyle, are owners of the Holiday Lodge Motel, located at the Village boat ramp.
Five committees were formed to take immediate action to find an avenue to allow permits for the ramps to be renewed. Daniel Pollard of Canyon Lake Village West and Jake Jessup of Canyon Springs Resort will head a committee to look into the particulars of liability Insurance.
“We’ve got lots of work ahead of us,” Mrs. Patton said. But the group is optimistic that some acceptable arrangement can be worked out.
Four members were named to the political liason committee: Bill Beam of Village West, Barry Black of the Village, Betty Coleman of Sattler and Jessup. Members will contact their congressmen to get sponsorship in Washington.
A committee to work with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will consist of Judith Black of the Village, Jim Mangum of New Braunfels and Mrs. Coleman.
Patton and Pollard will serve on the committee to coordinate their efforts through the Boating Trades' Association of Texas. Two representatives of that association, Lee Couch and Louie Raven of Austin, attended the meeting. At the state meeting of the BT AT last Saturday in Houston, the association authorized representation in the Canyon Lake matter.
Another committee will investigate the possibility of forming a private organization that could lease the ramps as concessions similar to the Lake Canyon Yacht Club on the north side of the lake. Citizens who will work on this possibility are Betty Shaw of Mt. Lookout and Bob Koons of Canyon Lake Hills.
“We’ve got lots of work ahead of us,” Mrs. Patton said. But the group is very optimistic that some acceptable arrangement can be worked out that will satisfy both the county and the Corps as well as residents of the area.
The group will meet again January 19 at 7 p.m. at the PEC in Sattler.
