The city of New Braunfels could be one step closer to creating a new city zoning district, following Monday night’s City Council meeting. It would allow resort facilities not located directly next to a river to receive public utility service.
Mike Shands, assistant city manager, reported to the council that the Planning and Zoning Commission had voted unanimously to send the creation of the new C4-B zoning district to the council for its approval.
“(This is) primarily being adopted and proposed tonight for Newk’s (Tennis Ranch) and T-Bar-M when they're annexed,” Shands said. "This will
be for anything ten acres or more not on a river that is still resort recreation.’
The original recreational resort district zoning was C4 until 1987 when C4-A was adopted without any substantial changes, according to Shands.

Representatives from Newk’s Tennis Ranch and T Bar M Tennis Ranch have been involved in this rezoning issue from the beginning. The C4-B idea was originally proposed by Gene Rutherford who represents T-Bar-M, and reviewed and accepted by Newk’s representative.
The zoning ordinance is being created to allow
for such resort facilities.
The process of zoning the two resorts C4-B would include being annexed by the city of New Braunfels, and even if and when that docs happen, Shands said there would be no guarantee that Newk’s and T-Bar-M will be zoned C4-B.
The council also reviewed a proposal to change the name of Wallace Drive to Zamora Avenue and to name the road which leads into the New Braunfels Airport to Entrance Drive.
Councilman Rudy Seidel voiced his concern over what he said was an arbitrary name change from Wallace Drive to Zamora Avenue, and said if

Sheriffs, constables working together to deliver warrants
By ROSE MARIE EASH Staff Wrltar
Cooperation between the Comal County Sheriffs Department and precinct constables was the topic of Sheriff Jack Bremer’s report during the workshop session of Commissioners Court Monday.
“Basically, we’ve come lo (an understanding) and I think it will be quite effective,” said Bremer. “As far as the hot check program in Comal County and the entire warrant problem in Comal County, each of the constables has agreed to dedicate deputies to the serving of warrants, hot check and others, and also to cross lines, lf the (deputy) is not available in one precinct,
there’ll still be other people available to serve warrants. The constables also agreed to get applications and do background checks on the deputies. The four constables themselves will be doing the actual law enforcement.’’
Bremer said the sheriffs department would put on a training session for those who had no previous experience serving warrants.
Since the constables can usually only patrol on weekends or evenings since they have other jobs, no set schedule was arranged between the sheriffs department, the city police departments and the constables. The constables did agree
to advise the sheriff’s office when they were on patrol by contacting the dispatcher.
The issue of additional cars for some of the precincts was raised, however, since it was not on the agenda, it was not addressed.
A commissioner will have to place the matter on the agenda in order for any changes to be made to the current policy of allowing only two cars per precinct.
In the regular session, the court accepted deeds for the Spccht Crossing Bridge Project, approved a resolution for public necessity to
