New Braunfels Councilman James Goodbread, former councilman Jose Espinoza and former city administrative assistant Court Thieleman were dropped from the multi-million dollar lawsuit after the city’s attorney John Lewis made a motion for a directed verdict. The New Braunfels Police Department and local organizations Rivers and Lakes Action Council and Coalition of Rivers Environment Protectors also were dropped. Allegations of tortuous interference and conspiracy to restrain trade also were dropped because of a lack of evidence. A directed verdict is a formal request by the defendant that a verdict of acquittal be issued because there is a lack of evidence to support a charge. Former Mayor Barbara Tiekcn, and former councilmembcrs Max Winkler and Betty Lou Rushing and former city manager Joe Michie remain in the suit. The Robert R.

(Photo by Deryl Clark) Do spring cleaning for free cleanup day By STEPHANIE DAVIS Staff Writer Start cleaning out the closets and garages because Waste Management wants it all next Saturday — at no cost to New Braunfels. New Braunfels City Council recently set June 3 as cleanup day for New Braunfels after landfill operations manager Jim Mcinholz proposed opening the Comal County landfill free to the community for one day. “This cleanup will consist of our company — the Garbage Gobbler — donating four roll-off boxes as it did last year and locate them throughout the city,” Mcinholz told councilmcm-bcrs May 8. The Safe City Commission also will help in cleanup efforts. “We do these cleanups all over,*' Mcinholz said. “I can get people m the landfill and they can see how nice it looks.” Mcinholz said Waste Management is concerned about litter and trash and wants the landfill to last as long as possible, which is a reason the company is involved in recycling programs. “Recycling is becoming more of People’s daily lives,” Mcinholz said. “We’re looking al the environmental standpoint and recycling is a good thing. We’ve grown to become a convenience society.” Metal items collected during the cleanup day — including refrigerators, stoves, and other metal-made objects — will be smashed and sold. Money collected will be donated to the Safe City Commission. Persons also can take trash to rolloff boxes located at the City of New Braunfels service yard at Klingcmann and Lakeview; dead end of North Hackberry Street; Fire Station #5 at 1250 County Line Road; parking lot of the old Canyon Middle School at U.S. 81 and Loop 337.

The program was described in his 4-H newsletter.
