Health department splits
SAN MARCOS — The joint Hays County and city of San Marcos -funded and operated Health Department will undergo restructuring that separates the department’s control and operation, according to a proposal between county and city officials.
Hays County Judge Eddy Ethcredge and San Marcos City Manager Larry D. Gilley have drawn up a proposal that will break down mutual funding and management of the department. The two governments had been sharing the cost and management of services since 1961.
San Marcos City Council members agreed they would like to see more information about the restructuring, but for the most part favored the plan.
Ethcredge said the county was ^waiting the city’s decision before it takes action on the proposal.
City officials resigns
’• BLANCO — Bill Fiddes, Blanco’s *atcr, sewer and street superintendent fyr 13 years, resigned his post last
• The action came just days before a Qty Council meeting with an agenda expanded to include closed session “evaluations” of Fiddes’ and Helen Tamayo’s jobs. While Fiddes said he hid at first assumed the meeting would be an effort to reduce their salaries, he learned water department employee John Harper had been approached by Mayor Ryan Trimble and asked if he could run die system.
Fiddes later was called to the mayor’s office and resigned when, he said, Trimble accused him of “lying, cheating and stealing the city blind.”
Tax rate lowered
BOERNE — Kendall County Commissioners shifted $50,000 in capital improvement monies to the general budget fund and reduced the 1991 tax rate to 31.9 cents for $100 of assessed property valuation.
The proposed $3,158,750 budget of the 1991 fiscal year won approval in
their recent meeting, and was followed up with the tax rate change. The budget earlier had $130,000 in sales tax funds earmarked for capital improvements, but commissioners reduced that amount to $80,000, shifting the remainder to the general fund and permitting the tax rate reduction.
The group also appointed First Southwest Company, an investment banking firm, to handle the county’s proceedings in the event voters approve the purchase of the NBC Bank Building. A vote on the issue is scheduled for November.Some projects delayed
LAMPASAS — City Manager J.O. Tanner has said several major projects recommended by mayoral committees will not be enacted in the upcoming fiscal year.
The projects, discussed in a recent City Council meeting, included expanding the golf course from nine to 18 holes and dismantling the Hostess House and swimming pool.
The golf course project, which recommended funding the changes with money in the golf course account and through fund raising projects, won quick council approval. Efforts to obtain the needed land already have begun.
The manager’s announcement curtails any further work on the project before fall 1992. The Hostess House project was postponed for the same time frame.Businessman killed
