A proposed limestone rock quarry in Comal County worries some residents who live near the site. They discussed their fear the quarry could compromise air and water quality and heavy trucks could damage roads during a public comment meeting Tuesday night at the New Braunfels convention center, which attracted over 400 people.

As of right now, people tubing on the Comal and Guadalupe rivers in New Braunfels can take canned drinks, alcoholic and nonalcoholic, on the river. The so called “can ban,” is not in effect.

Last week, an appeals court overturned a previous ruling that kept the city from enforcing the ordinance. City leaders want to discuss it before making any changes.

The City of New Braunfels is getting ready for a busy Memorial Day weekend of tubers on the Comal and Guadalupe rivers.

The city has implemented a new $2 river access fee on the Comal for people who bring their own tubes on weekends and holidays this summer.

“That’s the same $2 that anybody pays when they go to an outfitter,” said New Braunfels Convention and Visitors Bureau Director Judy Young. “So, it’s really just a very minimal amount of money – less than a cup of coffee – to help us take care of our beautiful resources.”
