New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 21, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas 2A New Braunfels Her&kJ-Z«/funy Wednesday, September 21,1983NBISD delays vote on architectural firmBy DY ANNE FRY Staff writer New Braunfels ISO trustee Bob Self has some questions he’d like to have answered before he votes to hire a construction management firm for the district’s upcoming construction projects. Superintendent Charles Bradberry said that all the questions had been answered to his satisfaction, but that there was no harm in giving the board more time to think about it. After hearing Selfs doubts, trustee Rudy Reinter withdrew his motion to hire the architectural firm of E.D.I., and moved instead to table the matter. The vote was unanimous. The final decision can wait, because the district-wide airconditioning project isn't going to be part of the overall management program. Bradberry wants to start on that right away. In fact, the board has called a special meeting for Sept. 29 so that it can approve the plans, which Jessen Ii Associates Inc. expects to finish this week. Bradberry has recommended hiring E.D.I. to oversee preparations for the rest of NBISD’s planned improvements. Depending on E.D.I.’s performance during tile design and bidding period, the firm might stay with the district throughout the construction phases. Bradberry described a “construction management firm” as “kind of a new concept.” He thinks it might save NBISD some money, while allowing local contractors to get in on the bidding. New Braunfels’ construction project, to be financed by $8.85 million in bonds approved last May, includes construction of a new elementary school and extensive remodeling of other school properties. Ordinarily, a school board might present it all in (Hie bid package and hire the lowest-priced general contractor, who might then subcontract the different areas of construction to other firms. Bradberry doesn’t think any local firms are ready to bid on a project that size. And ti the general contractor comes from out of town, there’s a good chance he’ll hire his subcontractors from his own area. E.D.I.’s proposal is to break the overall construction project into smaller packages, giving local firms a chance to bid in the area of their expertise. For example, there might be separate bids on plumbing, electrical work, roofing, and flooring. For a fee figured at four percent of construction costs, E.D.I. would help with the designs, assist in preparing the Md packages and coordinate all the construction projects. “We’re also going to allow general contractors to Md the entire project,” Bradberry said. Trustees will add up the lowest small-project bids, compare that total with the lowest general-contractor Md, ami see wMch way is the cheapest. If the difference is less than four percent, E.D.I. will bow out, charging nothing for the services already rendered, the superintendent said. “We’ll take the general contractor Md, but we’ll still have had their assistance in the design phase,” he said. In his opinion, the district can’t lose. Self, however, was worried about pinning down liaMlity, should any proMems arise with the construction. Bradberry said every small contractor would be required to put up an individual performance bond. Self said that bond only holds the firm to completing the work. “Once we accept the job, that becomes void,” he said. “I’m talking about the one-year warranty.” With so many different contractors handling different aspects of construction, he feels there would be many overlapping areas. If defects turned up during the warranty period, each contractor involved could claim it was the other one’s fault. A general contractor, on the other hand, can be held responsible for the work done by his subcontractors. Bradberry agreed there was a possibility of this happening, though he said it’s never happened in any project he was involved with. “You’ve got the same potential with an architect and a general contractor,” he pointed out. “Is it a design proMem, or is it the way it was installed?” Board tables vote on salary requests By DEBBIE DeLOACH Staff writer All but one Comal USD trustee voted to table a proposed supplementary salary schedule for middle school cheerleader sponsors and the senior Mgh assistant tennis coach Tuesday night. Karen Rust cast the only negative vote to Carey McWilliams’ tabling recommendation. McWilliams said he wanted to see a comparison (ti supplementary schedules for these individuals in other school districts before he voted on the matter. “I think we could open up a real can of worms with this,” board president Kenneth Wunderlich said. “Before we start paying cheerleading sponsors extra, I think we should consider compensating teachers for quality education.” The proposal would mean a maximum cost to CISD ai 1750 for the middle school cheerleader sponsors, and $300 for the tennis assistant at Canyon High School. In (tiber business, trustees also nominated five names to go (Hi the ballot for election of 1984-85 directors of the Comal County Central Appraisal District Each voting taxing unit may nominate one candidate for each position to be filled (rn the board of directors. The board has five positions, and the voting power of each taxing unit is dependent on the tax levy. CISD has enough voting power to put 2*4 persons on the board. Nominations for terms to begin Jan. 1,1914, were S.D. David, Bob Flume, Charles Lewis (who has served on the CISD roundup board since its inception), Col. Robert Van Horn and E.W. Neuse Jr. CISD Supt. Edgar Willhelm said the nominees from each taxing unit will be given to the county clerk, who will in turn send out ballots. In other action, trustees reset the regular March, 1964 board meeting from its original date of March 20 to March 13. TIM original meeting date fell during the week of spring break. The board also declined involvement in a book distribution proposal from a North Carolina company. The new reading book would have been given to first graders prior to the Christmas break. But the financial burden for the distribution would fall on local professionals and businesses, who would be contacted by a firm representative to help pay for the venture. It was Willhelm’s recommendation to “not become a party to this enterprise,” because one could argue the salesman would be making his commission with the school being used as pressure to complete the sale. Trustees agonized over a student transfer request involving a female Canyon High School senior. The family had moved from CISD to New Braunfels ISD, and was asking the board to approve the transfer and waive tuition. The request was approved on a 6-1 vote, with Wunderlich voting no. Trustees hire two new aides as enrollment continues rise By DYANNE FRY Staff writer Enrollment in the New Braunfels ISD passed tile 4,200 mark Tuesday, and trustees authorized the hiring of two new aides to handle the load. Both aides, one full-time and (me half-time, will assist in the Special Education program. The full-time aide will be employed at Lamar School, which has two severely handicapped children “requiring almost constant one-to-one attention,” said superintendent Charles Bradberry. An aide can work with these children, and free up some of the teachers’ time for other handicapped students. The part-time aide will go to Lone Star Elementary, which now has 37 students in the resource program. Since the kindergarteners at Lone Star are just starting school, Bradberry thinks it’s likely that more children in need of resource classes will be identified as the year goes on. The Texas Education Agency has given NBISD an extra 87 hundreths of a personnel unit based (rn increased enrollment. The two aides will account for .90 personnel unit, wMch means the state will pay most of their salaries. “It’ll cost us about five or six hundred dollars, is what it amounts to,” the superintendent said. Linda Avila, new director of Special Education, gave a report (rn her overall program at Tuesday night’s school board meeting. Her chapter was part of a 13-page report on all of NBISD’s special programs, as well as the general curriculum. Other portions of the report were made by Bradberry’s administrative assistants, Flo Pacharzina and Anita Stipnieks. Trustees also got a report on Community Education’s fall semester, with many courses starting this week. A teaching positions already in the 196384 budget were filled Tuesday. Karan Brawner will be teaching first grade at Lone Star. Trustees also approved a six-month leave of absence for Annemarie Kessler, speech therapist for Seele Elementary. She’s expecting a baby, and will be out for the remainder of this year. Assistant superintendent Oscar Smith said the district would try to find a temporary replacement for her. Bonnie Heathery was hired to complete the staff at Teen Connection, an alternative school which opened recently within the confines of NBISD. Trustees reviewed a copy of Teen Connection’s operating guidelines, and had no questions to ask of director Nancy Ney. Two transfer students were approved, including a first-grader from the Comal ISD and an eighth-grader NBISD roundup from Seguin. As mentioned above, enrollment is up this year. As of Sept. 9, the three elementary schools had more than 600 students apiece. New Braunfels Middle School had 1,017, wMch is “well above projections,” Bradberry said. There are 19 students at Lamar School, and 1243 at New Braunfels High. Bradberry noted the high school had 52 English classes going. “That’s a kit of English,” he said. Outside of class, school organizations will be raising a lot of money before this term is over. The board reviewed and authorized 54 projects proposed by groups ranging from the Pals of Lamar School (a parent-teacher organization) to the NBHS Class of 1985. “Chi one condition,” said board president Margy Wa I drip, before she voted. “I just hope they don’t sell me all that candy.” In other action, the board approved payments of $3,105 in attorney’s fees, $42,557 to architectural firm Jessen Associates Inc. It also listened to Community Service Center Liz Urban's presentation on the Comal County Community Fund drive, and reviewed the tax office report and the September investment schedule- Deaths LINDA AVILA ... gives report Horoscope Stocks BY STELLA WILDER WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 Born today, you are highly amMtious, but may well get your “break” in your chosen profession through the influence and hard work of another. You have enough energy for two people; nevertheless, you never hesitate to accept a helping hand when, by so doing, you can lighten your load. You are fair-minded, but somewhat inclined to go against your own nature, however guiltily, to serve your own interest first and best. In friendship you are loving and loyal, though inclined to ask much of those you love. You are intuitive and often will act on instinct rather than on logic or experience. Consequently, you will at times move in ways quite surprising to others, but particularly profitable to you. You are basically optimistic, happy, casual.
