City considers joining suit
By MARK WARNKEN Staff Writer
The New Braunfels City Council on Monday will discuss intervening in the Lone Star Chapter of the Siena Club’s federal lawsuit against the U.S. Department of the Interior to protect endangered species living in the Comal and San Marcos springs.
Council members will discuss possible legal action during a special executive session at 6:30 pm., prior to the regular council session at 7:30 pm. The council will meet in the New Braunfels Municipal Building Meeting Room, 424 S. Casten Ave. The council also will discuss a personnel matter during the executive session.
The council is considering joining in the lawsuit on the side of the plaintiffs. The suit, filed last year in U.S. District Court in Midland as “Sierra Club vs. Lqjan,” leeks to force the U.S. Department of the Interior and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to regulate pumping of the Edwards Aquifer to protect four endangered or threatened species — the fountain darter, the San Marcos gambusia, Texas wild rice and the Texas blind lalamander — through the federal Endangered Species Act. Manual Lujan Jr. is U.S. secretary of the interior.
The lawsuit seeks to force federal authorities to restrict pumping from the aquifer at any time spring flow from the Comal Springs is less than 350 cubic feet per second, thereby protecting the endangered species.
So far, three irrigators from Uvalde and Medina counties have filed to intervene on the side of the defendent.
District Court Judge Lucius Bunton has set Dec. 23 as the court date.
Coucil members also will consider authorizing the city manager to request proposals for the operation of the food-beverage-novelty cooees-
Leaders plan ahead
By MARK WARNKEN •ON Writer
The New Braunfels City Council on Friday met in a daylong workshop with city staff to discuss long-term goals for city government.
The council and about 20 department heads, lead by professional facilitator Chria Hartung. discussed a wide variety of issuea — including possible goals, environmental concerns, the city's strengths and weaknesses, and challenges city leaders may face in the next IO years that will be out of their control — from about 8:30 am. to 6 pm. at the Municipal Building.
Street improvements were a major topic of discussion. The council asked the staff to prioritize needed street projects and estimated costs for inclusion in a possible bond package to put before voters in the near future.
One street system priority would be to develop another cross-town thoroughfare by extending Fredericksburg Road to either Guenther Avenue or Academy Avenue. Reconstruction and widening of Walnut Avenue alto topped the list, along with improvements to better handle the summer tourist traffic.
The council also directed the staff to plan a meeting between the council and the Planning and Zoning Commission to discuss needed road projects and possible annexations.
lions in Lands Park and Prince Solms Park.
The Parka and Recreation Advisory Board recently recommended the council solicit proposals for operation of the Lands Park concession facility, now named Pat’s in the Park.
In July, the City Council approved a short-term lease with the Pal's in the Park restaurant owners through the past tourist season, thereby terminating a five-year lease scheduled to end in another two years. City officials cited contract violations, particularly non-payment of rent and the restaurant opening a month late this year.
In other business, the council will:
• Consider approving the first reading of an ordinance amending city building codes. The city intends to adopt the latest edition of Southern Building Codes Congress' model codes, a set of uniform building regulations used nationwide and in other countries.
The city currently operates under the 1985 edition.
One of the most significant changes is new plumbing code revisions that require low-flow water fixtures and low-flush toilets, derived from a new lute law signed into law in June. Such water-saving fixtures will be required in new and remodeled bathrooms, but the new ordinance won’t require retrofitting existing bathrooms.
• Consider approving the third and final reading of an ordinance imposing the hotel-mole I occupancy tex upon facilities located in the city's two-mile extraterritorial jurisdiction.
• Consider a request by Guadalupe Gas Company to remove two
