Kosko prepares for Utilities board duties

Al Kosko said he isn’t a boastful man. He doesn’t make a lot of noise or like much attention. He likes to study something first, then make his move. And when he does, he said his decisions are not affected by politics or influenced by others.
I hose traits could prove helpful in his newly-appointed trusteeship on the New Braunfels Utilities board. Kosko, 64, was named by City Council Monday to replace trustee Edgar Sahm, who had completed his five-year term in October.
“I’m just a plain ordinary fellow, but I’m part of New Braunfels,’’ Kosko said Saturday. “I want to be an asset to the board, but there’s nothing I have in particular to drive for now.
“I like to study my subject first. That’s how I wound up here in the first place,’’ he added.
Kosko said he spent 2*2 years studying different places to decide where he wanted to spend his retirement years.
‘‘After 32 years, I retired as a colonel from the U.S. Air Force,” Kosko said. “I studied many places on these three areas: living conditions, education level and facilities, and employment. My study brought "s here.
“People make the difference, you know. The heritage within our city is what makes me so proud,” he added.
The Koskos have lived in New Braunfels since July of 1971, and he said he plans to use the studious approach in making decisions as a NBU trustee.
“I plan to do a lot of research, and try to understand the growth. From there, ITI set my goals. But until then, I won’t be shooting in the dark.
“I pray I can be a service, and at the end of five years, people will be pleased with my decisions,” Kolso said. “Those decisions will not be affected by politics or other’s opinions, and if someone has any input, believe me, ITI listen.”
Kosko also stated he does not receive utility service from NBU, but he lives in one of the newly annexed areas of the city. At his residence on FM 725, his electricity comes from Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative, his water from Green Valley Water Co.
“I don’t think that makes any difference, though,” Kosko said. “I realize decisions I will make in the next five years will affect those 20 years from now. And that’s the case whether I live in or out of the New Braunfels Utilities service area.
“I tend to think my circumstance will make me more sympathetic — not less — to those who will be affected by my decisions,” he added.
Newly-annexed areas get garbage service beginning Monday
City sanitation services will begin on Monday for IO areas annexed by City Council last September. However, trash must be brought to the street for pickup.
FM 306 to Canyon I^ke and Interstate 35 to Hunter Road are scheduled for garbage pickup on Mondays and Thurdays. Highway 46 to (Tear Springs is scheduled for pickup routes on Wednesdays and Saturdays, while annexed areas on FM 725 and FM 1044 are scheduled for routes on Tuesdays and Fndays.
The annexed areas became part of New Braunfels on Sept. 21 after City Council approval on Sept ll. Those areas are: a strip 300 feet on both sides of IH 35 two miles north of FM 306; a strip 300 feet on both sides of Texas 46 east two miles from Camp
Willow Road; a strip 300 feet on both sides of FM 725 two miles east from County Lane Road; property on the southern end of the city extending 300 feet south of County Line Road; an area south of New Braunfels from FM 1044 to Morningside Drive.
Also, a strip 500 feet wide one mile north along Krueger lane; the proposed Oak Run subdivision at IiOop 337 and Texas 46 West; a strip 300 feet on each side of Texas 46 7,100 feet west from the entrance of T-Bar-M; and a strip 300 feet on both sides of FM 306 two miles north of the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad tracks.
There will be no garbage pickup on Thanksgiving Day or Friday, but santitation services will resume Saturday with regular routes.
Computer charges on appraisal agenda
Now that the Comal Appraisal District has a new computer system, it can offer more information to the public. Because of that, the Board of directors Monday night now has to decide how much to charge the public wanting information such as the square footage of a house, or a copy of a plat map.
Chief Appraiser Glenn Brucks is expected to have details about what
other appraisal district’s charge for the service.
Also Monday, the directors will discuss the procedure Brucks is to follow when buying or selling equipment or supplies, and will discuss the 1985 appraisal services contract.
The board of directors will meet at 7:30 p.m. in the District office at 644 N. Ixjop 337.

1984 goal is $115,000, and Comfund was only $7,000 away from that goal earlier this weekLone Star roof on NBISD agenda
The board of trustees of New Braunfels ISD will consider estimates for the roofing project at I/me Star Elementary at their meeting Tuesday at 7 :30 D.m.
The meeting will be in the New Braunfels High School library.
Estimates for the project have been gathered by 1/mnie Curtis, assistant superintendent of finances. The roofing project was necessitated w hen the oldest portion of Lone Star’s roof began leaking last year. Repairing the roof alone will cost around $40,000, but repairing any water damage to ceiling material, insulation or the building's structure will also be included in the project. Superintendent Charles Bradberry said.
The board will also approve the
text of a letter to be sent to the Governor, lieutenant governor, speaker of the house and chairman of the education committee in Austin on the education reform bill, H.B. 72.
The letter takes exception with the restrictions placed on discipline by the bill and on the requirement for a teacher competency examination. H.B. 72 specifically restricts expelling a student to cases in w hich a student or teacher was assaulted.
The letter states this lowers the standards already in existance ai New Braunfels ISD because it voids the rule approved by the board that makes expulsion a consequence of using, selling or being in possession of drugs or alcohol on campus.
The board will also revise the student promotion and retention policy to bring it in line with H.B. 72 and appoint the textbook committee.
