Guadalupe Blanco River Authority's general manager Salomon Brothers, a major investment firm had worked with GBRA since 19H4 preparing the bond issue to fund the six megawatt hydroelect ne plant now under construction at Canyon Lake Specht said last week that the firm s action means the river authority will not have to pay for work done by the firm during the last three years although they will be starting over, rn a sense with a new firm The GBRA Board of Directors approved M E Allison and Co as the river authority's new invest mein consulting firm Specht said the bond issue for the hydroelectric plant will go on as scheduled The river authority will tx* retaining the services of another firm that also has worked with Salomon on the issue Specht said last week that there really is not time for the major selection process the authority would follow if time were not an element in the situation That selection process could put us in a posi tion of delaying our bond issue,” the general manager said *'M E Allison and Co ark! specifically Mr (Floyd) Wester man are very familiar with out operation " Specht said New Braunfels Utilities officials had agreed with the arrangement Westerman, a representative of M E Allison, served as NBC's bond when the utilities issued more than Ii) million in bonds during September NBL will be the only customer for the hydroelectric plant which will provide electricity to city residents GBRA officials expect the bond issue to be $13 8 million to fund the hydroelectric project Specht said interest rates in the bond market have been heading upward He added that the river authority has been advised “it s not going to get much better for a w hile ' Specht said the alternative to retaining M E Allison would have been to insure the bond issue which would have guaranteed a better rating but also would have increased the cost of the issue Bob Sohn NBC’s general manager, said he doesn’t set* any problems with the change rn in vestment counselors He added that Salomon’s timing was not the best for the transaction but the issue will go on as planned Herb Schneider Comal County s representative lo the GBRA board abstained from voting on the bond counsel issue because be said of personal business dealings with W esterman NBL and GBRA will be considering approval of the bond issue during their regular November meetings Higher sanitation rates have rental managers upset Existing leases do not include higher cost of collection: rents likely will increase as a result Bv SARAH DUKE StaB Writer Apartment managers in New Braunfels are in an uproar because of the recent increase in garbage rates for apartment dwellers Carolyn Toth of New Braunfels Oaks said she said the change in garbage rates for apartment complexes is going to hurt the already slump mg apartment business in this city Her complex will spend $542 for garbage collection compared to $142 last month Some of the complexes are looking at $1 OOO for garbage " she said The rate change ap proved by the New Braunfels Cl tv Council went into effect Get and charges $7 50 per apartment unit plus 6 9 percent tax Previously the city had charges apartment complexes based on the number of dumpsters they had And they re charging us for vacant units That doesn’t seem right If nobody if physically using that unit why should I pay for it°' Toth said Saturday She added apartment managers received no notice from the city about the rate change that will cost extra $6 for each of the units at the complex Toth said garbage charges are included in the rent at New Braunfels Oaks But when a resident's lease is up needless to say the lease is going to have to come up she said Toth said she did not know about the rate change until Fri day She immediately called City Councilman Ed Sciantarelii and City Manager Joe Michie She wasn't satisfied with their answers to her questions "I don’t feel like it's fair Why are we being charged for vacant units'’ Why was there no formal letter written notifying us" she said. adding that city representatives told her simply that the rate increase was how they decided to handle increased ex penses in the sanitation depar ment “I want answers and the answer I'm getting is the cost has gone up so the are passing it on to apartment dwellers Toth said adding that apartment dwellers shouldst be singled out for charges City Engineer Bill Dobrowoiski. who is interim director of the sanitation depart ment. said Friday that the city has no way of knowing how many \ acant units a complex has and is charging on the number of electric meters at a complex He said if apartment units do not have individual See GAR BAGE Page 2 New Braunfels Herald-Zeituno Tuesday October 20, 1987 25 Cents Vol 134 No 203    707
