Committee works for incorporation
By DANA STELL Staff writer
Their first attempt failed by 60 votes, but on Saturday, members of a steering committee again will try to make McQueeney an incorporated city.
An Aug. ll vote in McQueeney failed 224-284, and at the same time, efforts to incorporate Treasure Island (a developed island in the north portion of Lake McQueeney) also failed.
After their disappointing failure, the seven-member steering committee drew up another plat. But it was not significantly different from the first, so Guadalupe County Judge James Sagebiel did not call another election.

He added that Seguin is reaching out for McQueeney in an effort to broaden Sfeguin’s tax base. “They’re hell-bent for leather to get McQueeney,” Ray said. "It’s not to stop New Braunfels, it’s to get McQueeney, but on the surface, they say it’s to protect against fen-
