He said he still owns the house listed for the exemption at 9504 Scots Glen in San Antonio, but that he has been living in a rented condominium in the Camp Wamcckc Resorts complex of New Braunfels since Oct. 1,1990. “I’ve been a resident of this county most of my life, but I’ve been sometimes in different places,” Seidel said. “Why not question my ability to serve on the board of directors instead of question my eligibility lo serve?” CAD board Chairman S.D. David Jr. said, “If the man were elected to take the office and somebody were to protest it, then it would have to be investigated and determined what is correct. O can’t say that that’s the exact procedure. This has never Happened before, so I really couldn’t answer that question.” He said he had heard of the eligibility question “out on the street,” but it had not been discussed at board meetings. City Attorney Barry Moore said he had received information about Seidel’s homestead designation. “There was some information Trustees opt to change custodial services By ROBERT STEWART Still Writ* A desire to not have a disruptive transition in management of maintenance and custodial services led to New Braunfels ISD trustees granting a new contract lo ServiceMaster Mid-America Management Services of Chesterfield, Missouri at the NB1SD board meeting Tuesday. The contract includes a “no-causc cancellation clause" that would allow the district to terminate the contract as early as June 30, 1991, said Superintendent Charles R. Brad berry. The board has expressed a desire to set up an in-housc system for management of maintenance and custodial services. The current contract with ServiceMaster is scheduled to expire at the end of December. Other companies submitting bids included AKA Environmental [ Services of Houston and Rite-Way Services of San Antonio. Bradbcrry said the Ritc-Way bid was determined to be non-qualifying and that going with the lower bid from ARA did not make sense if the • district planned to set up its own maintenance and custodial operation for the 1992-93 school year. Principals from various district schools spoke out on the need to • maintain a high level of service and to have a smooth transition to an in- vhouftc system. • “We can’t have a loss of quality [ through custodial or maintenance,” said Marilyn Buckner of Lone Star Primary. “B’s one of the hallmarks of • our district — it is one thing that speaks for who we vc and what we do everyday for our children.” “I think it’s a good idea to keep ServiceMaster on at least through June,” said Chs Vasquez of Lamar Primary “My custodians are very professional and take pride in what they do. We have a lot of questions ; that need answering before we can decide to take over these services on our own.” “I think ServiceMaster groomed us an awful lot to do it right,” said Jane MacDonald of Carl Schurz Elementary. “It’s going to take lime lo find the right people.” “Having been principal ai every school in New Braunfels except the high school and Seek, I think I’ve seen all the gamuts,” said Karen Simpson of New Braunfels Middle School. “The Middle School is not in great shape and has a long, lung way to go” Bradbcrry added that the transition to an in-house system will involve equipment costs, computer costs and training costs bul thai the yearly cost will be less. “I want ServiceMaster out of here,” said Trustee Leo Chafin. “I think it’s a way we can save money.” Trustee Bob Clarke said that he feels contracting services is the bcsi way lo handle custodial services in order to not burden principals with more dunes. “I think the lime has come when we have lo contract it.” Clarke said. “Our business is lo educate — not Harald-Zeltuitg Published Sunday morning.
