Subdivision rules amended on road bonds
By DORIAN MARTIN win writer
The Comal County Commissioners Court accepted an amendment to the Subdivision Rules and Regulations concerning road work during a public hearing Thursday afternoon.
The amendment requires the establishment of a maintenance bond or letter of credit at least 80 days before the expiration date of the road construction bond or letter of credit.
The commissioners voted unanimously to accept the proposal. W.N. “BUI”
George, commissioner for Precinct 4, was absent from the hearing.
The commissioners believe the amendment will cut down the incidents of developers who don’t complete road projects.
“Some of the subdivisions Just won’t finish the Job,” J.L. “Jumbo” Evans, Precinct I commissioner, said.
The amendment, according to Evans, “cuts the construction period from a year to IO or ll months.”
“This further defines the need of a maintenance bond,” county Judge Fred Clark said.
The amendment, proposed by George at an earlier meeting, stems from a meeting Oct. 12 when commissioners voted to formally notify a developer’s bonding company about work not finished on Stoney Creek I and II Subdivisions. The work was supposed to be completed by the Oct. 25 expiration date on the subdivisions’ 610,000 maintenance bond.
During that meeting, the commissioners complained of developers failing to erect signs and complete road improvements duringthe year-long term of the construction bond.

Comal ISD has plans Monday to offer elementary school students a safe alternative to Halloween trick-or-treating.
Two large Halloween parties will be at Bulverde Middle School, sponsored by the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), and at Canyon High School, where student council members will provide fun for younger CISD pupils from Goodwin Primary, Comal and Frazier Elementary schools.
The PTO party will be from 6-9 p.m. in the Bulverde Middle School gym. A magician will perform, and the Community Theatre group will operate a spook house. Clowns and other costumed characters will also be on the loose.
Popcorn and punch will be served, and children are asked to bring candy to share with their classmates.
“We found a number of years ago that traditional * trick-or-treating didn't work in this largely rural area where there is considerable distance between homes," Bulverde Elementary Principal Connie Bremer said. “The Halloween party provides a place where the children can dress up and have fun, and do it safely.”
The CHS Student Council-sponsored party will be from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the high school. There will be a costume contest, trick-or-treating in several classrooms, and a fish pond. Cartoons will also be shown.
