City Council in brief
City Council meeting of March 25, 1985. Council members present: O.A. Stratemann Jr., Valdemar Espinoza, James Goodbread, Max Winkler, Joe Rogers, Mayor Barbara Tieken. Absent: Betty Lou Rushing.
Entex: Council did not pass a resolution asking for a 90-day suspension before the gas company’s annual rate increase request is granted. So, on April I, New Braunfels residents will begin paying a minumum monthly charge of $6.80, up 92 cents from the current $5.88. The rate hike does not affect the step increases that rise according to the amount of usage and only covers the company’s cost of service.
MoPac railroad crossings: New railroad ties arrived this week and crews Tuesday began work on improving the crossing on Bridge Street. From there, workers will go to Mill Street, West San Antonio, and Coll Street to replace the rotten ties. Assistant city manager Hector Tamayo said the city asked the railroad company last October to fix the crossings.
Budget review: City manager Joe Michie told Council that department heads have turned in budget requests for next year. He called for a workshop with Council and department heads to review the requests and the proposed budget. No date was set.
Contractual agreements with the county: Michie told Council he has been talking to county officials about contracts for services provided by the emergency medical service, fire department, health districts, library, and jail. “We’ve reached some general agreements in some areas, but we are lacking in some
details,” Michie said. Michie said he expects more details within a month on contracted services, especially city use of the county jail. When the new county jail opens in May and city prisoners are moved into that facility, the police department will see additional space in its building.
Oelkers Acres utilities hook-up: Michie recommended that the city “start all over again” in notifying the residents of Oelkers Acres of the time-frame in which to hook up to city utilities. A homeowner there told Council the notification never stated she had 60 days to tie into the new lines and that having to do so was causing a financial hardship. She also told Council others in the neighborhood hadn’t known about the 60-day requirement. “Let’s send everyone the same letter, give everyone 60 days,” Michie said. New Braunfels Utilities has been sent a letter asking it to notify residents of areas it plans to go into in order to give the homeowners extra time to budget for a future hook-up.
Oil distributor: Council agreed to advertise for bids for an oil distributor for the public works department. On March ll, the city’s 45-year-old oil distributor failed as crews were working on the asphalt overlay program. Public works director Fred Ryden reported that an oil distributor could be mounted on a city vehicle for about $40,000.
Liberty Avenue area improvement: Council approved the expenditure of $27,798 for street improvement, including curbing, of portions of Garza and Austin streets, as part of a legal settlement with Bad Schloss. Inc. “We
had some additional funds that had to be spent,” said assistant city manager Hector Tamayo, explaining that
liberty Avenue improvement costs didn’t use up the entire settlement amount.Deaths
