New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 13, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Council to revise policies, employee pay schedules By DANA STELL Staff writer After several executive sessions to haggle over salaries of city employees, City Council Monday night is expected to revise the personnel policy and pay schedule. When City Manager Joe Michie carne to New Braunfels in June, he said he would conduct evaluations of department heads. “You aked me to come back with recommendations about salaries, salary adjustments, department heads — especially my evaluations of department heads — and my recommendations to you of all their adjustments,” Michie told Council last month. Also on Monday’s Council agenda is discussion of the city’s responsibilities on the extensions of Walnut Avenue and Common Street. The city must provide certain things, such as curbs, while the state Department of Highways and Public Transportationlengthens the streets. “If we want it done when the streets are constructed. we have to do it now,” said assistant city manager Hector Tamayo. Council will hear recommendations on the growing duck problem at luanda Park from parks superintendent David Whatley, who will suggest ways to reduce the number of Muscovy ducks in the park. The Rivers Conservation and Preservation Committe appointed by the Council will be giving some suggestions to the city; and Council will hear recommendations from the Options and Opportunities Committee about city support of the arts. Under the heading of “public hearings," Council will conduct hearings on the proposed re-zoning of three areas of town. One is the change from R-2 and C-l to C-l and C-3 on 6.634 acres and 1.279 acres on FM 725. Another proposal is by A.E. Fricke Jr., who wants 231 Redbud in Shadow Park subdivision to be zoned C-l; and developers of Oak Run subdivision want part of their area zoned Zero {jot Line and C-3. The three ordinances up for public hearings also will have their first readings by Council Monday. Council will read, for the second of three times, an ordinance re-zoning 42.5 acres bounded by FM 1044, South Mesquite Avenue, and Green Meadows subdivision to C-l and C-3. Also, Council will read, for the second time, an ordinance re-zoning 4 acres at 1192 Church Hill Drive from R-2 to C-l; and an ordinance prohibiting fixed wing or rotary wing aircraft from landing anywhere other than the New Braunfels Municipal Airport. An ordinance proposing an increase in the annual license fee for registering bicycles will be read for the second time, as will an ordinance designating the Jahn Bulding as an historic landmark. There will be emergency readings of an ordinance amending the city’s 1984-1985 general operating budget, and an ordinance conveying city property to abutting property owners. Council will pass resolutions honoring the work of Margaret P. Naeglin, the city’s first mayor, and Oliver O. Haas, a member of the Edwards Underground Water District board and water activist. Both died earlier this month. In other action, Council will: — consider a request from M.D. Fischer and Henry Moeller to purchase part or all of a dead end street. — hear a report from Mayor Barbara Tieken on the actions of the Corridor Water Task Force. — consider accepting bids for the purchase of a seven reel gang mower for luanda Park Golf Course. — consider advertising for bids for the purchase of a 1,000 gallon per minute pumper for the fire department, two monitor defibrillators for the EMS, and the asphalt for the 1984-1985 street overlay program.
