Sm CHAMBER, Pag* 2A WORD contracts for law enforcement New signage could discourage some trespassing By STEPHANIE FERGUSON Now* Editor In an attempt to discourage trespassing through private residential areas close to waterways, the Water Oriented Recreation District has budgeted funds this year for an educational signage project. Hie district will provide to any homeowner association within the district’s boundaries a wooden sign staung: "Residential Area — No Public Assess to River. River Access only at Businesses. Please Respect Private Property." WORD Administrator Betty Walls said the signs will be installed at the entrances to subdivisions. The sign and installation will be paid for by the district through user fees it collects. "We will do all we can to place enough signs so as to educate the general public of the need to respect private property and to access the river in the ap{>ropnatc public or commercial areas," Walls said. Subdivisions that are in the district's boundaries on the Guadalupe River below Canyon lake Dam include: Preiss Heights, Grucne River Subdivision, Mt. I-aurei Estates, River Cliff Estates, Elm Creek Estates, River Oaks, Mt. View Estates, Saltier Estates, Little Ponderosa, Pleasant View Estates. The Summit, Saltier Village, Kuntry Komer Estates. Canyon Comer. River Point, Horseshoe Falls. Crystal Heights, and Hidden Valley Hills. Subdivisions that are in the district's boundaries on the Guadalupe River above Canyon Lake Dam include: Rebecca Creek, River Wood, Spring Branch, and Ri vermont. For more information about the project call Walls at 620-5544. By STEPHANIE FERGUSON N*ws Editor Officials of the Water Oriented Recreation District and the Comal County Sheriff’s Office are hoping an annual law enforcement contract between the two agencies will be the answer to summer en me in recreation areas. This year WORD board of directors voted to pay the Sheriff’s Office $15,000 for supplemental law enforcement from the Memorial Day weekend to the Labor Day weekend. Money raised through user fees the district collects is paying for the supplemental law enforcement, said WORD Administrator Betty Walls. Sheriff Jack Bremer now will hire three temporary officers to patrol the district — two officers will man the streets and one officer will patrol the Guadalupe River by boat, to be purchased by WORD. Walls said the contract irons out a lot of pnonty problems voiced last year. The district directors and authori ties of the Shenffs Office had priority problems last summer in handling traffic and the law breakers in recrea tion areas. While WORD officials wanted officers to provide traffic control and ticket persons violating the district’s polystyrene and glass ordinances, the officers were told to pnonuze calls, a lot of times taking them to other calls within the county. Assigning the (officers) specifically to the district (is better) because before they could be called off at any time to bandle regular counts protv I ems,” Wails said. The temporary officers will patrol the area from about 6 pan. Friday through midnight Sunday every' week amil the summer season is over. Walls said. The district itself will lure about tour persons for the summer for its Courtesy Patrol — a position created to assist visitors with miormauon. Fhe temporary officers will be covered under Comal County’s liability policy, but the question remains wnether the officer in the boat will be covered. NBISD seeking suggestions By STEPHANIE FERGUSON N*w* Editor With uncertainty at the state level on school funding, trustees of the New Braunfels Independent School District are asking taxpayers for input on the upcoming budget. Aud {muons will get an opportunity Tuesday night at a school board study session to voice input on expenditures before the budget process begins. “There’s nothing to look at. We have absolutely nothing in hand at this point,” said Superintendent Charles Bradberry about die budget. But die input has begun. The school budget process starts at the building level with principals and leachers setting priorities and making requests. Those budgets are to be nuned iii next week to Loiuue Curus, assistant superintendent of finance. Curtis durn will put the budget components together lo be filii sited around the third week of April, Bradberry said. Board members make up several budget collum (tees and will review the preliminary requests. With uncertainty over the school finance battle in Austin, Bradberry said it’s hard to plan for how much slate revenue the district will receive. “Almost any plan will not hurt us, Bm NBISD, Pag* 2A Study will consider other cement plants By STEPHANIE FERGUSON Nmi* Editor Since hazardous waste isn’t cur-reiuly being burned at die Balcones Cement Plant, researchers will be looking at other cement plants bum mg waste lo determine the potenual risks, d aily. "Everything we're going to do will be based on data on oihei plants of suinUur nature, design and operating procedural T hen we will try to com pare what die reiauve change would be to the (New Biaunfels) community," said Lh. Michael MacNaughion, of Southwest Reseaich Institute, San Antonio. Officials of SwKi announced last week they would perform an environmental assessment of the proposal to store and burn hazaidous waste at the Balcones Cement Plant outside of New Braunfels. Owners of the Plant — die Lafarge Corp. aud its subsidi ary Sysiech Environmental Colp. are underwriting the cost of die independent assessment.
