week fe their miming.
Stop signs will be going up “in the next couple of weeks” on Rkfce, Timber and Twin Oaks streets, in the area of New Braunfels Christian Academy because of a speeding problem, city engineer William Dobrowoltki said this week.
“We’re going to try atop signs on Ridge, Timber and Twin Oaks,” he said. “AU these are on a trial basis, without going back for official ordinance until they’ve been tried for at least a month.”
Harold Goldstein, of Timber, had gotten nearly 300 signatures on a petition he presented to city council this week. They had wanted flashing, rig"* to tfow the speeders during school he
mid they *411 not get
the $4,000 signs. “The city wiU proceed to install standard, achoo! zone signs within the school zone, notice signs and entering-school-zone warning fegns and more qreod-limit signs,” he said.
Neighbors and employees of New Braunfels Christian Academy, Inc. met with Dobrowolski yesterday morning.
Marcia Wall, principal of the academy, said 270 students from age 3 through eighth grade attend the school, and cars can not be speeding through the hilly neighborhood at 50 and 60 miles per hour as they had been. She said also projected for the area are 70 more homes.
New Braunfels Mayor Pro Tem Chris Bowers suggested at this week’s fety-council meeting the city manager fenuldcfel for more pollee ptmlbto in
the area. “Keep the lights flashing there every three weeks or so, maybe make an example out of somebody,” he said. “If we’re going to do something, we need to make nut everybody up there knows it’s 30 miles per hour."
New Braunfels Councilman Ambro-sio Benitez also supported the stop signs. “A couple atop signs up in that area would not hurt at all I don’t think,” he said City councilwoman Mary Serold said her constituents told her the peo-
