resources with those of Bulverde, Garden Ridge and New Braunfels in order to get the most leverage out of these dollars," Edgett said.
“The response team will be comprised of city, county personnel and other volunteers from Canyon Lake, Bracken, Bulverde and New Braunfels,’’ Edgett said. “It’s going to be a team that will be able to go into an incident in protective gear and assist whomever is in a ‘hot zone.’ They can extract those people or provide medical attention to people in that area, or bring them out, and we can decontaminate them in order to get emergency medical assistance.”
The mobile unit, Edgett said, would be valuable at the scene of a disaster.
“One of the things we need is a mobile command post that’s portable so we can bring it to the site. It will enable our incident commander to be inside and not working off'the hood or trunk of a vehicle as
To be eligible for federal disaster relief funds, PEMA requires local governments prepare plans to deal with disaster and clean up afterward.
Pickens said Tuesday’s meeting would brief local residents on plans and receive public input.
Comal County Emergency Management Coordinator Carol Edgett said she would attend the meeting, along with other local officials.
Funding for individuals, such as the recent “buyouts" under FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, is not affected.
“We have to bi* a part of this plan to receive FEMA funding for our infrastructure under disaster public assistance,’’ Edgett said.
we are now,” she said.
This year’s grant money would be available in September or October, Edgett said.
The training will be made available through AACOG.
New Braunfels Fire Chief John Herber said the city and the county will work from the
same point of view.
The city will not purchase equipment the county has and vice-versa, Herber said.
“One example is we’ll be buying a pickup truck that’ll be used to pull one of those response trailers.” Herber said.
When the truck isn’t needed, it’ll be used by the fire department for other work, Herber said.
Itll be the same with all the equipment, he said, no matter which government agency purchases it.

She said county taxpayers could have been better served for less money if the county had paid JPs to magistrate instead of hiring another one, which cost more than the JPs asked in January for doing the job seven days a week.
The JPs asked for $5,000 each.
‘Paying you $5,(XX) does not make more hours in a day,” Scheel countered.
“If saving money is the critical issue - ” Dvorak began, and Scheel cut her off.
'Hie critical issue is we have 37 officials in this county — many of them here now in this room - and they all probably think they should be getting paid more money. How do I justify paying one office more money?” Scheel asked.
Precinct 4 Justice Jennifer Saunders supported Dvorak’s arguments.
“I want to be fair, but I want you to he fair, too,” Saunders said.
Precinct I Justice William Schroeder, former Comal County district attorney, said the workload in the JP offices has increased.
‘These are all new duties,” Schroeder said. “All of this is being dumped on us, and you’re saying, ‘Just continue doing what you have been
doing.’ We can’t because this isn’t the same as what we’ve been doing ”
Schroeder asked if any commissioners had any questions.
“Bill, the only question is are you willing to magistrate on weekends based on your current salary*?” Scheel asked.
“No,” Schroeder answered.
Commissioners discussed the issue briefly.
Precinct 4 Commissioner Jan Kennady made a motion to pay the JPs for the weekend magistrate. Precinct 3 Commissioner Cristina Zamora quickly seconded it.
Precinct I Commissioner Jack Dawson asked for a week to study the issue.
“I think it would be prudent for us to do a little homework first so we understand all the ramifications of this,” Dawson said.
Kennady amended her
motion to table the matter for one week.
After the meeting, the JPs expressed optimism that they had been heard and that they will receive the money for weekend magistral ions.
If not, Dvorak said, all three would stop doing it .
The county recently appointed attorney Ellen Salyers to perform magistrations Monday through Friday.
Scheel’s mind was not changed.
“I’m just one vote,” he said. “I would anticipate a fkx>d of additional officials who also feel they deserve more money for the roles they play in the county’s business, lf the commissioners’court is anxious to allow additional compensation, I’m curious how they will stand for voting for a tax increase if it becomes necessary.”
