Boat owner: Make tourists pay
Local lake user asks commissioners to consider ramp fees for visitors
By Greg Bowen
Boat owner Tom Corbin asked county officials to consider charging for the use of the county's nine boat ramps at Canyon Lake, which he said are overcrowded with out-ofcounty tourists.
"I think it's time for people to start paying as they go," Corbin, a New Braunfels resident, told Comal County commissioners during the citizens' comments portion of their Thursday meeting.
Corbin said the cost-free ramps have been so crowded with a "growing
population of tourists" he's been forced to use the boat ramps at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' parks — and pay the fee charged.
Corbin, who estimated 90 percent of those using the county's boat ramps aren't Comal residents, said the tourists are not only overcrowding the ramps with their boats, but are also misusing the ramps.
"They're swimming at the boat ramps and using the boat ramps as a beach. A boat ramp is not a beach," Corbin said.

• Approved the transfer to the county by the Dasher and Startz families of a 9.7-acre leg of the Y intersection at Startz Road and Farm-to-Market 2673 in Startzville. The transfer is part of a larger agreement to clear up real estate issues around the intersection. County officials said they are thinking about naming the transferred portion, which has long been used as a roadway. Startz Cafe Road and Startz Cutoff were two suggested names.
• Approved the placement of 20-mph speed limit signs and stop signs in a portion of the Canyon Lake Hills subdivision near Startzville. Five citizens spoke opposing the new signs, which county officials said are required under state law.
• Gave their stamp of approval to the 201 1 budget of Bexar Metro 9-1 -1 Network District, which provides 9-1-1 services to Comal County. Four percent of the district's $29.7 million budget is funded by county residents via fees assessed on their phone bills.
