Comal County taxpayers will have an opportunity to ask questions about the county budget andB-cent tax hike at a public hearing 5:15 p.m. Thursday. The public hearing, to he held on the first floor of the courthouse, is required by law for a tax increase of more than 2 percent According to Texas law, taxpayers could decide to have a rollback election, since the 6 cents represents a 20 percent increase. A rollback election can he called if taxes are increased more than 8 percent. This year’s tax rate of 30 OI cents per $100 valuation will be increased to 36.01 cents per $100 valuation. Comal County Commissioners announced recently. At IO a.m. Thursday, commissioners will put die finishing touches on the budget during commissioners court. Also on the agenda, a bid will be awarded on the water truck. Two bids came in, and commissioners opened them last week. County Engineer Clark "Mac” McCoy has studied them and will make a recommendation. Also, commissioners will consider a proposal by an appraiser who wants to acquire right-of-way for the county along county roads. During a recent presentation by the Department of Highways and Public Transportation, commissioners found out which roads the state wanted to widen and which they would consider taking into the farm-to-market road system. Commissioners decided to hire an appraiser to begin getting the needed right-of-way. Several appraisers were asked to present a proposal to tile county on what their charges would be for the work. This will be the first appraiser to bring a proposal. By LILLIAN THOMAS Staff writer A portion of the Memorial Elementary School site might be deeded to the city for a fire station, if New Braunfels ISD’s deed restrictions are accepted. Superintendent Charles Bradberry announced this news to the board in Tuesday’s meeting. The district has negotiated with Hie city for three months. "The area where the construction trailer is located now would be the area considered for the fire station,” Bradberry said. "We will deed the land over to the city with the restriction that the land be used solely as a fire station site.” Bradberry said if the fire station was ever moved or stopped being used as a fire station, the deed would require the city to give back the land and all improvements on it. "We also want architectural approval of any structure built on the land,” Bradberry said. "I’m hoping they will chose a design that uses the same architectural brick that we used on the outside of the school and the same type of metal roof.” Plans for a training tower on the site had been scratched after looking at the neighborhood that would grow up around it, the superintendent said. “This could save both (the city and the school district) taxpaying units,” Bradberry said. The city will not have to buy land, and the school district will have the security of 24-hour workers near the school, besides the fire protection. Neighborhood security will be an important consideration, Bradberry said. In other business, the board authorized the finance firm of Rauscher Pierce Refsnes, Inc. to continue developing the information and material to effect a refunding of the district’s outstanding bonds. Bond refunding will save the district money by having the bonds redeemed and then refinanced as specially structured federal bonds, explained Floyd Westerman, the district’s financial advisor. The bonds will earn a lower interest rate than the bonds originally cost the district, giving a net gain to the school district, Westerman said. The finance firm still has to compare more data before it will be clear which bonds the district should attempt to redeem and what the savings will be, Westerman said. "A big factor is the spread (of the interest rates) between the government non-taxable bonds and taxable bonds. Right now that spread is narrow, but later it could get wider again,” the financial advisor said. "It may not be to your advantage to refinance the low interest bonds.” NBISD financed the majority of 1983 bond issue when interest rates were high. The federal bond program that allows the district to refinance them has a fluctuating rate. The rate the district will get will depend on what the rate is the week they are sold. In other business, Iceland Cox reported that the licensed vocational nursing program, which lost all state funding this year, may become a satellite program from St. Phillips College. "The state decided that all LVN instruction should be on the college level, but we feel New Braunfels needs this program,” Cox said. "In 17 years this program graduated 217 students who all but five passed the state boards. And 97 percent had job in the medical field within a year.” Cox said most graduates worked at McKenna Memorial Hospital or Guadalupe Valley Hospital. St. Phillips College, which has an LVN program, was willing to take the entire program, leaving the instructors and students in New Braunfels and administering the program and providing the funds for it. Other reports made to the board were from Anita Stipnieks on bilingual education and the TEAMS test, and Flo Pacharazina on state sick leave policy. Bilingual and English-as-a-second-language classes have 307 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. In the sixth grade and above, only ESL is available. From the sixth through the senior year, ESL classes have 120 students enrolled. "In Texas bilingual education is a state program,” Stipnieks said.
