Budget, Tax Rates and Motion to Ban All Outdoor Burning in Unincorporated Areas Top Commissioners’ Thursday Agenda.
Comal County Judge Sherman Krause will present his 2023 budget to Commissioners Court at 8:30 a.m. Thursday in the historic county courthouse, 100 N. Seguin Ave., New Braunfels.
Commissioners also will discuss and consider the proposed 2023 tax rate and set dates for public hearings, and consider a motion to ban all outdoor burning in unincorporated parts of the county.
One of Krause’s concerns is funding pay increases for county employees. Salaries are well below market, and the county needs to address staff shortages in numerous departments, including the Comal County Sheriff’s Office, which has over 30 vacancies, the district attorney’s office and the road department.
