New Braunfels residents are encouraged to attend and provide input at the sixth annual river recreation public input meeting on Wednesday, September 11th, at 6:00 p.m., at City Hall. City Hall is located at 550 Landa Street.
In 2014, City Council appointed a River Advisory Committee to provide recommendations to them in river-related matters. This led to the establishment of an annual public input meeting giving citizens an opportunity to voice their thoughts and suggestions concerning City of New Braunfels river operations. During the meeting, City staff will provide a presentation on the 2019 river season, answer river-related questions and receive input.
“This is a great opportunity for citizens to come and learn more about river operations in New Braunfels, as well as provide their ideas and feedback on the river recreation season,” said River Operations Manager Amy Niles.
