By LILLIAN THOMAS Staff writer
A town meeting with a pipeline company that has planned a crude oil lire through Comal County is set for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Civic Cen ar.
Representatives of the All-American Pipeline Company will be at the meeting.
Commissioner J.L. (Jumbo) Evans made arrangements with the company to come and answer citizens’ questions on the project when he had been contacted by concerned citizens.
The company agreed to pay for the meeting room.
The company plant to carry a high-sulfured crude in a 30-inch heated pipeline from Santa Barbara, Calif., to Freeport and plans to cross the recharge zone of the Edwards
Aquifer. Many people have expressed concern, including officials with the Edwards Underground Water District, over whether the crude could get into the ground water.
Company representatives will address the Edwards Underground Water District IO a.m. the same day to answer some of their questions.
Both rumors and factual information have surfaced in the public debate over the pipeline; some of both have come from knowledgeable sources on both sides of the issue.
Many will raise legitimate questions about the possibility of an oil spill getting into surface water, such as the Guadalupe River (it crosses the Guadalupe immediately on the other side of the Comal-Guadalupe county line) and ground water such as the Trinity and Edwards Aquifers.
In the environmental impact statement required by the Bureau of Land Management the document states the impact of the pipeline on ground and surface water to be significant even after mitigating measures are applied. The
mitigating measures are construction and surveillance
techniques that minimize the impact by about half.
Citizens have been concerned that the pipeline would smell; however, none of the information indicates that the pipeline will be vented. The environmental impact statement shows no vents and lists no significant air quality impact.
Kyle McAlister, part owner of Questor Pipeline Company, Guadalupe Cattle Co. and Guadalupe Realty Co. wHbse land the pipeline crosses, said there was a possibility that the pipeline would build a tank
farm where they plan the Seguin pump station.
“If that happens the smell from the hot sulfured oil would make us into another Luling. And with the prevailing wind direction toward San Marcos in the summer, that would do a lot of good for the tourist trade,” McAlister said, a man well aquainted with the oil industry.
Tank farms are put in places where the oil needs to be stored while it is waiting to be shipped elsewhere. For instance a tank farm might be planned at McCamey where some crude will be sent down the Rancho pipeline directly to the Houston refineries, or at Freeport, where some might be loaded on tankers to go to refineries in Mississippi or louisiana. Seguin has no other crude oil pipelines and certainly is not a

Arts commission to discuss room tax
Last February, City Council agreed to give the Arts and Cultural Commission 20 percent of its collection from the local hotel-motel room occupancy tax.
Another 5 percent of the tax was designated for the city’s two museums, the Sophienburg and the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture.
To help do that, Council added 2 cents to the local 4-cent tax.
The new allocation for the arts is more than the Arts Commission expected, as it had asked for a total
of 15 percent for the arts groups, with 2 percent of that going to the museums.
Tuesday night, the Commission will discuss the distribution of its share of the room tax.
Before the Council’s Feb. 28 decision, which will be approved in ordinance form Monday, New Braunfels hotel guests paid 8 cents per dollar in room tax with the state and city each collecting 4 cents.
Of the local share, the city of New Braunfels got IO percent, the arts got IO percent, and the convention and
tourist fund of the Chamber of Commerce got 80 percent.
The additional 2 cents added to the tax must all go toward the direct attraction of tourists, according to state law. The remaining 4 cents will give 20 percent to the city, 20 percent to the arts, 5 percent the museums, and 55 percent to the Chamber of Commerce.
At a Feb. 24 meeting, the Arts Commission tentatively agreed to give room tax revenue to nine groups — Comal Independent Mens Association, Mid-Texas Symphony,
German Folk Dancers, New Braunfels Art League, Greater New Braunfels Arts Council, Circle Arts Theatre, Braunfels Foundation Trust, the Sophienburg archives, and Texas Junior Miss.
Commission chairman Mike Walker said if the Commission got more money than expected, there were two alternatives. The Commission could add more recipients, or give more money to the groups already tentatively agreed upon.
Tuesday’s meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in City Hall council chambers.
