City seeks answer to eel grass woes Stocks NEW YORK (AP) -Closing stocks: By DANA OVERSTREET Staff writer The city’s aquatic weed control program has been working’in Landa Lake on everything except one type of slow-growing weed. And the parks department has enlisted the aid of three fisheries biologists and Comal County Extension Agent Bill Schumann to find the remedy. One of them told the parks department that '‘the city has beer^ doing a good job keeping the vegetation down,” said Parks Director David Whatley. However, the eel grass is “the real problem,” Whatley said. “Ifs resistent to mechanical harvesting and to chemical treatment. We did not have a good handle on it and the eel grass is slowly taking over the lake.” One problem with administering weed-killing chemicals, Whatley said, is that the springs running through the lake cause the chemicals to disperse. When treating weeds, Whatley said, the chemicals must be safe for the endangered species in the lake and must be safe to swim in because the spring water goes into the spring-fed pool, and must be safe for crops because the river was is used for irrigation. Whatley said the biologists and Schumann have “found a good chemical control and now we’re testing it.” Texas Parks and Wildlife has offered to test the chemical on an acre of plants, Whatley said, and in return wants some of the weeds to take to other lakes. The parks director said other, less-clear lakes have little vegetation and therefore, few places for fish to live. After the experiment, the Texas Parks and Wildlife will show the parks department how to adminster the chemicals. Whatley said the program cost the price of three lunches. He gave a report on the project to the Parks and Recreation Department Advisory Board Tuesday night. Also Tuesday, the Board agreed to hire an architect from Meister and Company in San Antonio to review the proposed park-related items on the city’s fall bond issue plans. The architects will calculate the dollar figures for each proposed bond issue item, such as the park improvements, Whatley said. “Everybody (members of the softball and soccer clubs and of the parks department and the advisory board) has been tossing out figures and we need somebody to look at the facts and figures and see if they are correct,” Whatley said. The firm’s architects are former park planners and talked to the board Tuesday about project priorities from the department’s and the public's standpoint. The architects also discussed strategies of passing a bond issue election and things they experienced in San Antonio and in College Station. Whatley said the advisory board should decide its bond priorities Aug. 6. Also at the meeting, the board approved a first-ever logo for the parks department to use on stationery, t-shirts, vehicles, patches, and bumperstickers. Fred Zingcraff of Guinn Printing Co. designed the logo. Deaths LD. Stocks Arrangements are pending at Doeppenschmidt Funeral Home for I.D. Stocks, 88, of 58 Primrose Circle.

Jane and Steve Abbott, owners of Abbott’s Rentals on River Road, opposed having the no-parking zone include the county right of way next to their property partly because they thought the order included pedestrians standing in the right of way. The wording on the sign proposed was “No parking, standing or stopping.” “We are subject to harrassment,” Jane Abbott said. “We don’t know how this will be enforced. If you grant us this exception and it leads to problems, you can remove the exception.” Also they were afraid that cars parking on their property would encroach on the county right of way and end up being towed away. County Judge Fred Clark reassured the Abbotts that the order did not include pedestrians. “That one exception is the reason for this hearing," Gark said. “We have tried it with exceptions and’we have all these problems. If we leave the right of way next to your property out, we might as well not do any of this.” Clark also argued that any restriction opens the way to harrassment. The best protection against harassment was the quality of law enforcement personnel hired The Abbotts agreed with most of the points made by the commissioners and others who came to speak in favor of the no-parking zone, but the canoe rental owners felt the terrain around their property made theirs a special case and should be treated as an exception. Others at the hearing said that the no-parking zone would help make the road easier for emergency vehicles to get through because no one could pull off the road and let an ambulance pass under the present situation. Ijnda Avila, who owns a home along River Road, said sfce and her family were virtually locked into their home on the weekend because the traffic along the road was so heavy. “When we bought our home out here, people warned us,” Avila said. “And some of these problems we will just have to live with. But car doors opening into the street because people are parking in the county right of way is an unnecessary problem.” When commissioners passed the no-parking zone in March of 1984 from the third river crossing to the Meckel property, things improved a thousand percent, said Dick Preusser, owner of Camp Beans on River Road. “Primarily we are looking at safety," he added. “One of these times when someone opens a car door out into the pavement because they are parking on the county right of way, somebody is going to get killed. And if we can save one person’s life with this, I think we ought to do it.” In other business, commissioners awarded the bids on the half-ton truck and the motor grader, though neither item appeared on the published agenda or were contained as emergency items. In both cases the second lowest bids were taken. Krueger Chevrolet received the bid for a 1985 model half-ton truck costing $9,522. The lowest bid was $9,140 offered by Becker Motor Co on a 1986 model, but would take six months to deliver. Krueger promised delivery in 30-60 days. Anderson Machinery received the bid on the motor grader for a Fiat-Alice model costing $59,283 to be delivered in 30-60 days. Hie low bidder. River City Machinery of Austin, offered a Mitsubishi model for $54,933, but nine different variations from the listed specifications knocked them out of the running. County Engineer Clark “Mac” McCoy recommended the two second lowest bids, and after commissioners had him detail the exact spec ification differences, they agreed with McCoy's judgement. In other business, commissioners agreed to hire Reed and Co. as the outside auditing firm again, bul for an extra $600 next year. making next year’s total contract $17,750 They also approved pay ing an extra $1,732 for this year’s audit because of extra time the auditing took that was not in the original contract.
