CANYON LAKE — The county is building a set of signs officials hope will make it easier to get emergency help to boaters in distress.
Commissioners recently voted unanimously to accept a numbering system for the county’s eight boat ramps at Canyon Lake and to create new direction signs to the ramps that incorporate their existing names and the new numbers.
The numbers would supplement the local place names of the ramps and be visible both from parking areas and the lake so that boaters from out of town have a ready reference to guide emergency help when making 9-1-1 calls — and so motorists can more easily find the ramps.
The issue was raised one year ago at a meeting in the lake area.
Kay Cote, assistant general manager and spokeswoman for the Comal County Water-Oriented Recreation District, approached commissioners two weeks before the recent Memorial Day holiday asking that the signs be produced as a public safety issue. WORD was seeking permission to place the signs at the county’s ramps — which it operates, asking the county to make the signs.
“I’m here to tell you of a health and safety issue in the
WORD district,” Cote told commissioners. “Permit holders were very vocal and concerned at our (recent) meeting that we should consider placing numbered signs at our boat ramps.”
The county operates eight of the 22 boat ramps around the lake, and most are named for the neighborhood or subdivision they are located in.
Canyon Lake Fire/EMS Chief Shawn Wherry said the situation has created a longstanding problem because the local names of the ramps don’t mean anything to out-of-towners.
“A common problem is visitors who come to our area don’t know these local place names,” Wherry said. “Another problem is the locals sometimes have more than one name for a place. Having a standard numbering system will take care of both of those issues. If a person sees a sign that says ‘Boat Ramp IO,’ it takes a lot of confusion out of the question.”
Wherry said the new designations would be keyed to personnel at county dispatch.
“It’ll help a lot on the dispatch end of it,” Wherry said. “They’ll be more likely to get a quick response if theres no confusion about which ramp they’re at.”
The directional signs, he said, would also help tourists find the lake.
“Another thing that happens in the summer is peo-

pie who drive to Canyon I .ake expect to find a huge lake in front of them. They often come to the station and ask, ‘I low do I get to the lake?’ This will help guide them to the ramps.”
Precinct I Commissioner lack Dawson approved a numbering system on behalf of himself and Precinct 4 Commissioner Ian Kennady, who has been recovering from surgery. Dawson said he had been told the signs would cost between $500 and $750 each, and said he’s asked WORD to help with the costs.
“The price kind of shocked me,” Dawson said. The county will make the signs, but if we could have a little help with the upfront price, we would appreciate it.”
County Engineer Tom I fornseth said the signs were under construction.
“We did have to order some special material,” Hornseth said Tuesday. “We’re hoping to have them completed in two weeks.”
