Several residents have reported strange phone calls about water testing in their homes so New Braunfels Utilities is cautioning its customers that there may be a scam in the works since the people ask to come outside of business hours.
"That kind of raises some concern whether their drinking water is okay," said NBU Communication Manager Gretchen Reuwer. "Many of them have agreed, but once they do that, they start thinking about the time in the evening that these people want to come in, and they know that NBU has regular office hours," Reuwer said.
According to a city ordinance read into the record Monday night, three-wheeled pedicabs would be allowed to take pedestrians around downtown area.
New Braunfels Mayor Gale Pospisil said there are already business people hoping to start running pedicabs as soon as possible.
"I think it will just be a nice added amenity and particularly since it does cover the historic downtown area where we have a lot of historic buildings and things. I think it will certainly be a nice attraction," Pospisil said.
