SERVING NEW BRAUNFELS SINCE 1852Williams to voice tourism’s viewFormer New Braunfels mayor named spokesman of group suing city over can ban
The Tourist Associated Businesses of Comal County (TABCC) announced Tuesday that former New Braunfels Mayor Stoney Williams will serve as the official spokesman in its lawsuit against the city's pending disposable container ban.
In a news release, TABCC said Williams has been an advocate for responsible river management, understands the direct and indirect impact river-related tourism has on local busi^
ness and the importance of protecting the rights of the individuals who usé the city's rivers while maintaining ana preserving the rivers for future generations.
His goal is to firld a solution that protects individual rights granted by the state, helps city government lessen the burden
to local taxpayers, protects and maintains the beauty and tranquility of the rivers, maximizes river revenue from all tubers for effective river management costs, and encourages the business community's cooperative involvement, according to the press release.
On Sept. 28, TABCC, Williams
and others filed suit seeking to overturn the city's pending ordinance that would prohibit beer cans and other disposable containers on the Comal and Guadalupe rivers beginning Jan. 1.
Ban opponents have petitioned to force a Nov 8 refi^ren-duni on the proposed ban.
