Will the Austin-San Antonio area become the new Dallas-Ft. Worth? New census data shows that Hays and Comal Counties are among the fastest growing in the country. Both grew by around four percent last year, which has some mayors and city planners considering the possibility of a new mega-region.

By the time it’s put into practice, even a basic city ordinance can become complex and confusing.

Such is the case with the New Braunfels ‘Can Ban,’ which prohibits tubers from taking disposable containers onto the water, an ordinance that is now in the hands of the state’s Third Court of Appeals.

The New Braunfels ordinance was passed in 2011 with the intent to reduce litter on the Comal and Guadalupe Rivers.

New Braunfels Utilities

A jury in Comal County has found in favor of New Braunfels Utilities in a lawsuit against the Lower Colorado River Authority.

The verdict could mean a nearly $30 million judgment against the LCRA for violating its contract with the local utility.

In returning the verdict in favor of NBU, the jury found that LCRA had breached its 1974 Wholesale Power Agreement with the utility and violated state law by charging excessive and discriminatory rates.

Mid-Texas Symphony has a performance on Sunday that may have escaped your attention, but I'm here to make sure it doesn’t!

“We are in Seguin, and we perform in Seguin and New Braunfels," said Mid-Texas Symphony Music Director David Mairs. "I think it’s been said that they are the two smallest cities in the United States that have a fully paid, fully professional orchestra. We are founded by Anita Windecker, a former piano professor at Texas Lutheran University.”

The Mid-Texas Symphony uses musicians from all around Seguin, but as Mairs explained, they don’t stop there.
