during the summer.”
There was also discussion that there could be more pro-rata funding losses from the state that could affect the program.
The board heard a report on the energy savings program that created a $106,876.07 cost avoidance over the eight month period through August.
“That’s (money for) four teachers,” Middleton said “That’s great."
Other reports included Energy Cost Reduction Opportunity (ECRO) audits provided by the Governor’s Energy Office to identify further cost reduction opportunities like bulb replacement, summer shut-down, and micro-proccssor control systems.
An executive session was held to discuss litigation pending against the board concerning an ex-employee.
There was no action taken on the matter.
The board recognized teachers of the month Al Haas, a fifih-gradc teacher from Bulverde Elementary ami Fernando Palos, a seventh and eighth grade teacher and coach at Smithson Valley Middle School. The employee of the month is Jesse Laurence, maintenance supervisor ai Smithson Valley High School.
The board was presented with compte* of the 1990 Smithson Valley High School yearbook by Cathy Orosco, editor, and Tina Hernandez, managing editor.
Technology Coordinator Nina Grantham presented a plaque to the board that CISD received from Optical Data Corporation to recognize the district as a “partner in innovation” for their use of videodisc science programs.

say it’s the only option we had left.”
An allegation that surfaced last week concerns Grohman and charges thai he attempted to influence how city employees voted in two recent city elections. During the executive session, the council saw results of a lie-detector test that refuted these charges, said Kenneth Brazle. Grohman's New Braunfels attorney.
Grohman has said Goodbrcad violated the city charter during a recent fact-finding investigation. Goodbrcad. who said he didn’t violate the charter, said he only attempted to verify information frorn a city employee concerning serious charges about Grohman’i management. Neither the specific allegations nor the name of the employee have been made public.
Branle on Tuesday morning said that Grohman, through the lie-detector test taken at his own expense, hoped to put the charges against him to rest and save the city time, money and attention needed for an investigation, which he expects to be conducted by a law firm. The cost to the city will run between $15,000 and $40,000, depending on the scope of the investigation, Brazle said.
"However, the city manager welcomes the investigation and was thrilled that the majority of the City Council had the wisdom to also investigate the allegations of wrongdoing by certain council members,” Brazle said
“The city manager is confident that when the smoke clears, he will be exonerated, and at the most ii will be revealed that certain council members have been guilty of wrongdoing, including some possible charter viola
tions. and at the least, there arc some power-hungry politicians in this town that tried to make a power play rn the guise of protecting the people," Brazle said.
Based on an in-depth review of the statutes on abuse of office, Bra/.lc and Grohman arc certain no wrongdoing occurred, the attorney said.
"Paul went to council and said, ‘Look this is going to hurt the council, this is going to hurt ma and this is going to hurt the city of New Braunfels if this continues because if enough people read about problems in the city of New Braunfels, whether true or not, some people arc going to start believing them’," Brazle said.
Going in to the meeting, Grohman hoped for a public apology and an agreement to put the mailer to rest and get on with the business of running the city, Brazle said. The city manager also offered to discuss the list of allegations against him in detail, but the council chose not lo do so, he said.
Brazle said he doesn’t know exactly what allegations against Grohman would be included in the investigation. But charges of election influencing and possibly charges by the disgruntled employee may be included, he said.
Grohman's attorney said he has a four- to five-page document of specific allegations by Grohman against certain council members which likely would become public in any investigation.
“Paul has knowledge of some wrongdoings — in his opinion at this time — by certain council members, in a couple of cases even before they were elected to council. And he’s upset about it, that’s the bottom line,” Bra/ Ic said
