City Council will hold a special budget hearing May I ? at which time it will vote on the property tax rate increase Michie is expected to pre sent a revised budget for council s first public reading The possibility of revenues recon ed from the sale of the city county landfill resurfaced Monday night during comments offered bv District
' council member Frl Sciantarelli Michie, who represents the city’s interest on the Comal County Solid Waste Control Board acknowledged the board is once again considering celling the site to interested waste management firms The board had received proposals from two firms for the purchase or lease of the landfill but announced early last month it had decided not to sell the site Since that time. proposals have been accepted from private engineering firms for a proposed site development study follow mg minor state health department violations
Sciantarelli suggested the sale of the landfill could further reduce the amount council would need to approve in ad valorem rate adjustments though Michie called the selling of the landfill “premature" and said it was impossible to place any revenue figures in the proposed budget that would be realized for the city’s share of the sale
It is not a hard number A ghost number gives me some problems." Michie said who refused to speculate what the sale of the landfill might bring in “It would depend on the bid ding process." he saidscuc

I ve heard rumors *h may reduce ii' tax rate Si .?• vs •
I dont think there ha'.** r>eer anv appraisal adjust merits on proper?-, value there since I *H.;
There is a lot of farmland along KM that has carried a SI vxi per aire appraisal Scott 'aid But some of that land could conceivable go to SPXU**) per a rc a .’h < ornerier rial growth in several years
lf that land got appraised at fair market value perhaps St l f .could lower in resident propers taxes Scott said The appraisal differenc e between the districts is riot a ole! hare! fact ort .‘.huh ce ii bas* decision it s just one facet together with education quality ’hat we are stud;, mg
Sandy Schlather public tnforrria lion officer for >< I < Isl) >airl *he proposed annexation of the * niversal City area would take i *m>*j vtudents from the S( cc _< h<*o s tpprox innately 28 percent of Ne district s present enrollmer *
Ibis would reduce ’hr teaching staff t»y one fourth she said \nd would decimate the advanced pla< e merit and cither rec en*iv established programs which ire- or* od-, small classes
Jack Stic kland mother * m\* r-el f tty resident pointed out that the Texas Legislator now 1 orkingon decisions involving 'ding districts and multi county sc hoot districts >«» it may Ire taken completely out cif their hands Strickland said ti* hop*-' dec i>ion will I** reached soon Patricia Thompson •.ho has been a teacher ariel Kingfish department chairman at Samuel < lemons High School in sect ISI) for I » years said she has the district weather many slur ms of ma mg degrees
But never did I think I d see its very nature rn severely threatened 1' it is today Thompson said
I wonder how thoroughly the peo pie behind the movement to pull a portion of I niversal C ity from our district ti,ive considered the conse quences no? only to the district, but aho the students teac hers and com mumty itself. Thompson said
And I wonder too if the ideas that bigger is better anc! winning is the name of the game have clouded * ti#* essential goal of education providing what s best for all students Thompson said
It i' just for this that I transfer my own children from a larger neighboring district to SUIT USD Thompson added I didn t want them lost in the crowd of a larger s< h*K" I also wanted their teachers to tx* the spec ial instructors who ae motivated to stay because of the urn que* ( terriens qualities teachers who c c»uld go to any other district in Bex ar Tour’, for more money but who c boos* nstead the close relationships md ira i * onal values at SCI ( PSD
Thompson said she is upset about the proposed idea and has questioned Steele How could the district po.s'ibl-. continue to offer these and •th* ! low, enrollment courses when more than a thousand students are 'iiddeny r* moved from the district0” six* asked Steele Aas quick to point out that annexation could cause setbacks for his district We c ould lose UMM) kids inc! we would have to cut back on some of our programs he said
The impact on our children and ourselves cannot be overstated and the school and its students should not become pawns in a game of economic manipulation Thompson said
Sure Judson is a large district and playing on AA learns and having
an academic advantage in some areas would be a draw for these parents." Steele said "But I don’t think it’s fair to disrupt the education of youngsters who are comfortably situated "
Scott said the annexation drive members only want to gain better educational opportunities
■Our objective is to look at the advantages and disadvantages said (feyer F'ven if we stay, we will take this list to the SULC board "
Scott also appeared before Guadalupe County Commissioners and told them annexation would present a distinct tax advantage" because the Guadalupe tax rate is higher than the Bexar County rate Guadalupe commissioners said it is tex* early to speculate on the drive at this time
Commissioners also did not want to comment on just how annexation would hurt or help the county but some agreed with Steele that favorable votes from 50 percent of those registered would be hard to come by
Steele said his office has receive between 150 and 200 calls opposing th#* annexation I believe this annex ation talk is really a tempest in a teapot Steele said
As long as I ve been here people in Universal City enclave paying SCUT taxes have vehemently opposed the situation I very much support this annexation but I’m not behind the machinations of pushing it through as I ve heard some people suggest Strickland said
All this consideration is only in the research stage yet Dr Steele is using his letterhead to start a scare campaign against us." Geyer said There is no clandestine organza tion or in place committee already scheming for annexation," he said
