Commissioners select water study group Lions
In Comal County Commissioners Court’s workshop session yesterday, County Judge Carter Casteel informed the court that she has asked a diverse group of residents in the Canyon Lake area to serve on a water study group.
“I’m convinced we need to get a water study group going in the Canyon Lake area," said Casteel. Tve really tried to mix it up with all kinds of viewpoints in hopes that we can dispel some of the confusion and stop the misinformation and get everybody on the
same tune concerning water."
Casteel asked the commissioners to suggest any other citizens they thought may be interested in serving. The group will be a forum for gathering information oft the water issue and discussing possible solutions to the problems facing the western portion of the county on this issue.
Casteel also brought House Bill 7 to the attention of the court saying it will result in the transference of $7 million from state programs that now help provide
over 22,000 convict and home delivered meals a year in Comal County. If the bill passes as is the county will have to pick up the funding for those meals locally*
In the regular session the court accepted the resignation of Constable Bo Eoff and postponed the appointment of a replacement until next week to allow time for those wishing to apply to meet with the commissioners. Applicants may schedule individual meetings with commissioners through Wednesday of
next week.In other business the commissioners:
• Authorized hiring two replacement jailers.
• Appointed central counting personnel for May I special election.
• Approved a contract between the county and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for additional law enforcement services.
• Approved a contract between the county and the Emergency Communications Club for expenditures not to exceed $1,500.

“Does it look like it gets old?" Linares said.
Charles Bailey of San Antonio, a $10,000 winner said he was happy with his prize. Bailey bought his winning entry ticket the day he asked his fiancee to marry him. He said money would go to helping him and his wife-to-be get started and that $10,000 was “more than enough."
"This is great — I mean great," Bailey said. “I’m happy."
Pauline Donnet, winner of $25,000, said she couldn’t believe how many people came out to watch.
"I knew there would be people here, but I never thought this many people would come out to watch us win money,” Donnet said.
Lottery officials estimated a crowd of just over 2,000 people — the largest so far in the lottery’s instant millionaire drawings.
Jim Schools, Jr., Director of the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce Convention and Visitors Bureau, said he was happy with the number of New Braunfelsers who came out for the event
“I’m very pleased with the turnout” Scheele said. “I think long term it’s going to help out because every time they said
lottery they would mention New Braunfels and people will see that and say want to come down to New Braunfels."
Linares said that this drawing had the best turnout of any of the previous 19 drawings.
“We usually have about 1,000 people at the drawings but this by far, I think, is our largest participation," Linares said.

PROPOSITION NO. I ON THE BALLOT
Section I of Senate Joint Resolution 7 proposes a constitutional amendment that would allow the legislature to redistribute among other school districts ad valorem taxes levied and collected by a school district. The amendment would also allow the legislature to create county education districts w ith the taxable property of existing school districts in one or more counties combined. County education districts may levy, collect, and distribute ad valorem taxes as authorized by general taw. The legislature would be allowed to aet the rate of the ad valorem tax to be imposed in a school district or county education district or it may authorize the board of trustees of each school district or county education district to set the rate, provided that the rate of county education district ad valorem taxes may not exceed $1.00 per MOO valuation of taxable property, unless a higher rate is approved tty the voters of the district. The amendment also provides that the amount of ad valorem taxes redistributed among school districts by the legislature and effectively redistributed within a county through county education districts may not exceed 2.75 percent of the sum of the state revenue appropriated for public schools and the revenue from local ad valorem taxes levied and collected for public schools. The term “state revenue” does not include revenue from ad valorem taxes, revenue for the provision of free textbooks, or contributions to a retirement system. Finally, the amendment provides that it does not affect the distribution of the available school fund under article VU, section 5, of the Texas Constitution.
The proposed amendment will appear on the ballot as follows:
“The constitutional amendment allowing limited redistribution of ad valorem taxes for schools, authorizing the legislature or local districts to set
a minimum tax rate in county education districts, and placing a cap on the ad valorem tax levied by county education districts.”
PROPOSITION NO. 2 ON THE BALLOT
Section 2 of Senate Joint Resolution 7 proposes a constitutional amendment that would provide that, except for state educational mandates imposed in compliance w'ith the Texas Constitution or federal law, or unless enacted by a vote of at least two-thirds of the members elected to each house of the legislature, a school district may not be required to comply with an obligation requiring expenditure of school district funds unless the obligation is fully funded. The amendment also requires the legislature to provide by law a procedure for determining whether an obligation is fully funded. In the absence of such a procedure, and at the request of a school district's board of trustees, the comptroller of public accounts shall determine whether or not an obligation is fully funded. This amendment applies only to state educational mandates enacted after December 31, 1998.
The proposed amendment will appear on the ballot as follows:
"The constitutional amendment exempting a school district from the obligation to comply with unfunded state educational mandates."
PROPOSITION NO. 3 ON THE BALLOT
Senate Joint Resolution 4 proposes an amendment to article VU. section 5(b), of the constitution, which currently authorizes the legislature to provide for using the permanent school fund to guarantee bonds issued by school districts and certain education-related revenue bonds issued by the state. The amendment would repeal the provision authorizing
the use of the permanent school fund to guarantee state revenue bonds, blit would permit the legislature to provide by law for the issuance of general obligation bond* or revenue bonds of the state for the purpose of making loans to, cir purchasing bonds of, school districts for the purpose of acquisition, construction, or improvement of instructional facilities, including all furnishings. The amendment also provides that the state, pursuant to general law, may forgive the payment of principal and interest on all or part of a loan made to a school district under the amendment to partially finance an instructional facility. The cap of $750 million on the amount of bonds that could t)e issued under article VU, section 5(b), as amended, would be retained. The amendment would repeal the current provision of the constitution permitting the legislature to authorize bonds in excess of $750 million by two-thirds record vote pf both houses of the legislature. While any of the general obligation bonds issued under the amendment or any of the interest on those bonds is outstanding and up-paid, there would be appropriated out of the first money coming into the state treasury in each fiscal year, not otherwise appropriated by the constitution, the amount sufficient to pay the principal and interest on the bonds that matured or became due that fiscal year.
The proposed amendment will appear on the ballot as follows:
‘The constitutional amendment authorizing the iasuance of $750 million in state general obligation or revenue bonds to assist school districts in partially financing facilities, authorizing the state to forgive payments of loans made to a school district for partially financing facilities, and repealing the authorization for $750 million in state revenue bonds guaranteed by the permanent school fund.”
