Sparks said the most likely target for the mon- ey is the Buda Sportsplex, a 52-acre park featuring four baseball fields, four recreational fields, a trail system, a large play- ground and other on-site facilities. Other sporting venues in the area could receive a cash infusion from the tax, as well. "It just needs some improvements to be a tournament-caliber facil- ity," Sparks said. "That would be our most likely target. It can be used for a variety of different sporting events." Until then, city officials can only wait and see. Sparks, for one, likes the chances of the bill pass- ing. '7k similar bill passed in 2015, which gives us cause for optimism," Sparks said. PHOTO BY MOSES' LEOS III Proposed legislation within the 85th Legislative session could allow for Hotel Occupancy Tax dollars to be used for sports recreation purposes, such as the 2015 Copa Vive soccer tour- nament that was held in Kyle. Financial Habits Continued from pg. 1D buy the jeans - but if She requires more for what she wants, it's on her. It's amazing how quickly kids change their mind about needing something when they're paying for it. WORK IT OUT Your children may not need or want to work, but a job can teach a lot about having a solid work ethic, the importance of getting a good education and competition in the marketplace. Volunteer- ing can have similar benefits. Parents want to give their children every ad- vantage, Walser says, and that's just what you're doing if you prepare them to better deal with real-world financial deci- sions. "A little tough love now will go a long way towards preventing an unwelcome sense of entitlement from your kids and keeping them out from under a cloud of debt when they're older." - Rebecca Walser, wealth management advisor little tough love now will go a long way towards preventing an unwelcome sense of entitlement from your kids and keeping them out from under a cloud of debt when they're older," she says. Walser has the support of her husband - from humble beginnings himself- whose family routinely says "the best thing my father ever gave me was nothing." Walser sums this all up by admitting that "finding the right bal- ance, when you do have something to give, is the key to providing a more comfortable life for your children without quench- ing that inner drive that we all are born with to make something of our- selves - something that cannot just be handed to you."

WQoox4377oo1 APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. Sunfield Municipal Utility District No. 4 and Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority, 933 East Court Street, Seguin, Texas 78155, have applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a renewal of Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQoo14377OOl, which authorizes the discharge of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 99o,ooo gallons per day. TCEQ received this application on July 28, 2o16. The fadlity is located at 143i Satterwhite Road, in Hays County, Texas 78610. The treated effluent is discharged via Ouffall ooi (Route A) to an unnamed tributary; thence to a small pond; thence to SCS Site lO Reservoir; thence to Brushy Creek; via Ouffall 002 (Route B) to an unnamed tributary; thence to SCS Site lO Reservoir; thence to Brushy Creek; via Ouffall 003 (Route C) to an unnamed tributary; thence to SCS Site 12 Reservoir; thence to Brushy Creek; thence all discharge to Plum Creek in Segment No. 18io of the Guadalupe River Basin. The unclassified receiving water uses are minimal aquatic life use for the unnamed tributaries, high aquatic life use for the small pond and SCS Reservoirs, and limited aquatic life use for Brushy Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. i81o are high aquatic life use, aquifer protection, and primary contact recreation All determinations are preliminary and subject to additional review and/or revisions. The TCEQ Executive Director has completed the technical review of the application and prepared a draft permit. The draft permit, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The permit application, Executive Director's preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at Buda Public Library, 303 Main Street, Buda, Texas.

This application is subject to those changes in law. PUBLIC COMMENT / PUBLIC MEETING. You may submit pubfic comments or request a public meeting about this application. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application. TCEQ holds a public meeting if the Executive Director determines that there is a significant degree of public interest in the application or if requested by a local legislator. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing. OPPORTUNITY FORA CONTESTED CASE HEARING. After the deadline for submitting public comments, the Executive Director will consider all timely comments and prepare a response to all relevant and material, or significant public comments. Unless the application is directly referred for a contested case hearing, the response to comments will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments and to those persons who are on the mailing list for this application. If comments are received, the mailing will also provide instructions for requesting a contested case hearing or reconsideration of the Executive Director's decision. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in a state district court. TO REQUEST A CONTESTED CASE HEARING, YOU MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN YOUR REQUEST: your name, address, phone number; appficant's name and proposed permit number; the location and distance of your property/activities relative to the proposed fac'dity; a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the facility in a way not common to the general public; a list of all disputed issues of fact that you submit during the comment period and, the statement "[I/we] request a contested case hearing." If the request for contested case hearing is filed on behalf of a group or association, the request must designate the group's representative for receiving future correspondence; identify by name and physical address an individual member of the group who would be adversely affected by the proposed facility or activity; provide the information discussed above regarding the affected member's location and distance from the facility or activity; explain how and why the member would be affected; and explain how the interests the group seeks to protect are relevant to the group's purpose. ,. Following the close of all applicable comment and request periods, the Executive Director will forward the application and any requests for reconsideration or for a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting. The Commission may only grant a request for a contested case hearing on issues the requestor submitted in their timely comments that were not subsequently withdrawn. If a hearing is granted, the subject of a hearing will be limited to disputed issues of fact or mixed questions of fact and law relating to relevant and material water quality concerns submitted during the comment period. TCEQ may act on an application to renew a permit for discharge of wastewater without providing an opportunity for a contested case hearing if certain criteria are met. EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ACTION. The Executive Director may issue final approval of the application unless a timely contested case hearing request or request for reconsideration is fled. If a timely hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed, the Executive Director will not issue fnal approval of the permit and will forward the application and request to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting.
