The pair of pet parrots stolen two weeks ago from New Braunfels Feed & Supply on Loop 337 have been recovered. Linda Rompel said thanks are owed to “divine intervention” and a multitude of friends and customers who watched for the birds to turn up in the area. Police are still investigating. Alan Rompel Jr. and Amazon parrot, “Senor Verde,” get reacquainted.
The New Braunfels Independent School District tax office mailed out statements for the 1999 tax year for the school district and the City of New Braunfels on Monday.
According to Betsy Caldwell, director of tax collections, taxpayers will receive two tax statements in the mail — one for school taxes and one for city taxes.
“The amount due will be the total of the two statements,” Caldwell said. “You may make out one check for the total due.”
Caldwell said if taxpayers did not receive statements by June 23 they should contact the tax office to verify their mailing address.
“If you have an escrow account with your mortgage company, your statement has been sent to them,” Caldwell said. “If you do receive a statement and have an escrow account, you will need to forward a copy of your statement to your mortgage company for payment.”
Taxes are due upon receipt and must be paid no later than July 31 to avoid penalty and interest. Taxpayers older than 65 may opt to pay their taxes in installments, but at least one fourth of the total due must by paid by July 31. This applies only to homestead property.
Payments may be made in person at the tax office, located at 407 W. Mill St. The office is open between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Payments may be mailed and will be considered on time if postmarked by July 31.
For more information contact the tax office, 625-6714.
