Lehmann said he would like to see more “realistic figures reflecting the renovation at Canyon Middle School versus new property and utility costs, figures for a kitchen at Bulverde Primary, and figures for the SVHS campus with (science) labs and the entire thing to match the other highschool."
McChesney said he would have those costs by next Monday’s workshop, set for 7:30 p.m. at Frazier Elementary.
Brown’s presentation showed these preliminary cost estimates per campus: a new Smithson Valley High School, $7,700,000; Smithson Valley Middle School, $943,000; Mountain Valley Elementary, $485,000; Bulverde Elementary (grades 4, 5 and 6), $765,000; Bulverde Primary (early childhood, kindergarten, I and 2), $245,000.
Also, Canyon High School, $3,093,000; Canyon Middle School, $1,516,000; Goodwin Primary, $455,000; Comal Elementary, $754,000; and Frazier Elementary, $310,000.
Roof repairs were also added in at $165,000, and asphalt district-wide was estimated at $550.01*0, for the total $16,981,000.

juries. Both men are 29 years old and live at Route I. Box 78, New Braunfels.
King said the car was southbound on Hunter Road when it failed to successfully negotiate a left turn. “He ran off the road to the right, lost control in the grass, and slid back onto the roadway into a ditch on the other side. The driver was partially ejected, and the car rolled over on top of him,” the trooper said.
None of the car’s occupants were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident. The trooper also said there was no excessive speed involved in failing to negotiate the turn.
“The speed was less than 55 miles per hour based on our skid tests and statements by the two passengers,’’ King said. “They stated Hamel veered off the road to the right, jerked the car back to the left and lost control.”
the major work at each campus be put in the bond package as a whole. “It’s all important. If we start to piecemeal this thing, we’re going to have problems," he added.
Whether the district should renovate Canyon Middle School or sell the property and build on cheaper land also got its share of discussion.
“There’s an investment there now of $2.9 million, whereas a new campus would cost $3.5 million,” McChesney said. “So there’s a $584,000 difference between the old anda new campus.”
He added that difference would shrink if the 7 acres behind the existing CMS, plus the 8.5 acres on which the building stands, were also sold.
But getting utilities to a new campus site, even though the land might be cheaper, McChesney said, “is one of the good reasons for holding onto the land and building where you're at. If you renovate, there’s going to be some extensive disruption.”
If a $17 million bond issue were passed, Brown said the taxable value of a $70,000 home would go up from $309.69 to $394, while taxes on a $100,000 home would increase from $460.35 to $385.25. The taxable value on a $150,000 home would go up from $711.45 to $904.48, or an increase of $193.03.Curtis H. Lyons

Suspects sought in hit-and-run
New Braunfels Police detectives today expect to arrest a 17-year-old man for allegedly striking another 17-year-old with his car and running over the foot of another man.
Lt. Felix Roque, head of the criminal invesigation division, said Johnny Martinez and at least three
others were being followed by a car and a pickup truck about 9:20 Sunday night. “They got tired of being followed and pulled over into the parking lot of a business in the 1400 block of West San Antonio," Roque said.
Three of the men, including
Martinez, got out of their car and headed toward the street to confront the drivers of the cars following them. The driver of the second car “struck the victim and ran over the foot of another party," Roque said.
Both the car and the truck immediately left the scene.
A warrant was issued Monday for the arrest of the 17-year-old driver of the second car. He will be charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon — a third degree felony.
Martinez was dismissed Monday evening after observation

jury to argue the constitutionality of the ordinance," Reimer said. “By having the trial, the judge ruled that the statute is not unconstitutional” and was going to have the jury decide on the fact issues of the case.
Pena pleaded “no contest” to the two barking dog complaints, meaning the appellate court, if he appeals, will decide on the constitutionality of the statute and not on the evidence about the alleged barking incidents.
Reimer said he had previously offered a bargain to Pena that was not acceptable. “We changed the offer last week and couldn’t reach him" because Pena was out of state a1) week, Reiiner said.
So Monday was the first time Pena and Reimer had discussed the new offer, which Pena ultimately accepted.
“We saved the county the cost of a jury, which could have cost more than $700,” Reimer said. Court reporters and bailiffs are paid by the hour, while prospecve jurors are paid $6 per day. Chosen jurors receive $16 per day for their service.
