City of New Braunfels Mayor Adam Cork thanked Casteel for filing the bill.
“Tm glad she's carried the ball for us,” Cork said.
The mayor said the bill was an excellent idea.
“The rivers are a wonderful treasure,” Cork said. “They belong to the state, so it seems reasonable th&t we ask the state to maintain those treasures we get to enjoy.”
New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce President Michael Meek said he’s not sure the measure will pass due the state’s anticipated budget shortfall. But he hopes it will.
“Now that the city’s showing they want to partner with the state, we have a better case to make,” Meek said. "We’ll fight hard for it. And if we don’t make it, we’ll keep plugging.”
Meek said the state’s legislative conference scheduled to be held here in two weeks highlights the importance of the bill.
“We’ll be working towards that end,” Meek said. “It will give us a chance to show them how unique we are.”
