Comal County Commissioners voted unanimously in a roll-call vote Monday to increase the effective tax rate of 30.01 cents per $100 valuation to 36.01 cents.
A public hearing on the proposed 20 percent increase will be held Oct. 3.
The general fund tax will increase by 3 cents and the farm-to-market and lateral road tax, which can only be used for road improvement projects and right-of-way acquisition, will be increased by 3 cents.
The latter tax will raise $1.02 million. With the rest of the revenues, the total road department income will come to $2 million. Of that $222,000 was raised by the flood control tax ' less than .5 cent per $100 valuation) last year, but was not
The flood control tax will be eliminated this year — absorbed into the 3 cent tax increase — County Auditor Bate Bond explained.
The road department budget will come to $1.96 million after the 5 percent raise County Engineer Clark ‘ Mac” McCoy requested for his workers was cut to 3 percent — like the rest of the county workers. Also three of the seven new workers McCoy requested were eliminated.
McCoy also lost five pieces of equipment from the bottom of his $484,608 request, saving $110,000, but commissioners added $100,000 in contract miscellaneous construction.
Early in the discussion. Commissioner Monroe Wetz said he might decide to vote against the 6-cent tax increase because he disagreed with the $600,000 in miscellaneous construction.
“If we give them $1 million to reconstruct roads every year, you won’t be able to pass a bond issue for road improvements,” Wetz said.
County Judge Fred Clark pointed out the number was a lot closer to a ha'f a million.
“If you will recall McCoy’s presentation, he said we needed to ck* a twelfth of our roads every year,” Commissioner J.L. “Jumbo” Evans said. “That would be 40 miles a year. With $600,000 you will buy 12 miles of reconstruction.”
Commissioner Bill George offered to route all the calls he got from county residents complaining of roads to Wetz if he didn’t think the program was needed now.
“When each of these construction projects comes up, the commissioners will have a say in which roads get done before they go out for bids,” Clark said.

The city’s $11.5 million bond package received a nod of approval Monday, when the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors almost unamimoulsy voted to endorse the measure.
Of the directors present, ll voted to endorse the bond package, with only one voting against the measure.
The only dissenting vote was cast by Bennie Bock, who questioned the reasoning of extending Pahmeyer Road rather than Walnut, ‘which is a more direct route,” he said.
The vote came after a report by the Chamber’s Master Plan Update Subcommittee iii which that body recommended “acceptance and general support of the city bond issue.”
The report was given by Jack Ohlrich, chairman of the subcommittee.
He said that even though the 1984 Master Plan Update has not been officially adopted by City Council, the chamber committee was prepared to recommend its en
dorsement — accompanied by “several items of concern.”
Those items included: reasoanble user fees for park and recreation facilities should be established; right-of-way should be acquired for the extension of County Line Road to FM 1044, establishing a traffic loop, rather than the Pahmeyer Road improvement; all existing codes and ordinances should be observed by the city in the construction of new or expanded facilities; and that the East San Antonio Street bridge, though not addressed in this bond issue, should be placed on the highest priority list and addressed in the near future.
“With these concerns in mind,” Ohlrich said, “I recommend your acceptance and general support...” Joe Michie, city manager, told chamber directors at the meeting that the idea of extending County Line Road might be accomplished with some of the road bond funds, “There is nothing wrong with using monies in the street portion of the bond package for that purpose if there are some left and if construction on that project comes in less that originally quoted.”
He added that County Line Road was left off the list because of the cost.
“It would be a valuable asset,” Michie commented, adding that since it would be an asset to developers in the area, developers and land owners might donate the right-of-way, and the other monies could be used to extend the road.
Addressing the Pahmeyer Road question Michie said that the construction of that road was needed to provide immediate access to the new primary school.
“Walnut extension would Im? a more direct route.” Michie admitted, “but we are waiting for the subdividers to come in with platts."
He added that bond funds were set aside for the city’s portion of extending the road, and that when subdividers platted and dedicated right-of-ways the city would immediately have funds for its extension.
“The subdividers will determine when it gets built,” tie told chamber directors. “And Pahmeyer would give us direct access to the new school now.”

Site for new Guadalupe County jail chosen
SEGUIN The Guadalupe County Commissioners voted Monday on a site for a new jail. The jail will be built on Interstate IO at the intersection with Highway 123.
County Judge James Sagebiel said the county bought the land about a year ago. It is adjacent to the county’s juvenile center and behind the road and bridge warehouse.
The current jail has been used since 1936 and is not in complish'*!*
with several state standards for jails. Sagebiel lead a letter received from the Texas Jail Commission stating that the variances from state standards would no longer be allowed if the county did not move to build a new jail.
The commissioners are hoping to begin construction on the jail at the end of next year or the beginning of 1987, Sagebiel said. “We hope to have our finances ready by then,” he said.

Crime over the weekend included more than the usual amount of assaults, especially in families, area law enforcement offic ials i eported.
A 21-year-old man showed up at the emergency room of McKenna Memorial Hospital Sunday with a knife wound in his right leg.
The injury occurred the day after he and his .sister had been arrested for assaulting each other.
Juan Jose Sandoval, 21, and Araceli Sandoval, 22, who both live at 208 Bergfeld filed Class C Assault charges on each other
The charges resulted in both being arrested after an argument 11:15 a m. Saturday broke out in scrat
ching and hitting, according to the New Braunfels Police report.
The injured man would give no information to the police in Sunday’s assault that occurred sometime before 10:30 p.m.
Also another family violence situation ended iii the arrest of Jesse Villanueva. 33, of 241 U S. 81 West No. 7.
His wife Carolina Villanueva, 28,
filed Class A Assault charges.
Blood and broken dishes at the scene were evidence of the fight, the New Braunfels Police report said.
Also tile arrest of George Dechane, 46, a carnival worker, about 4:50 p.m. Sunday ended a family violence situation.
Sally Dechane filed Class Assault charges on him, according to the New Braunfels Police report.
“Preliminary estimates are around $2.8 million to $3 million for a jail with facilities for 110 inmates.” Sagebiel said.
The old jail, on Center Street in Seguin, has room for 31 inmates.
The judge said that in order to keep the jail in compliance with state standards, the county would bt1 required to air condition the building, remodel the shower stalls provide a day room on the third floor and complete other major work.
The commissioners decided the money would be better spent on a new facility. Sagebiel said.
“I think it’s a wise move,” said Sheriff Melvin Harborth. “Especially considering all of the work that we would have to do to the old jail to keep it in compliance.”
Harborth said he is pleased with the site. “Most people like to have the jail real close to the courts but this is within five minutes of die courthouse,” he said.
