New Braunfels Still Dealing With Can ban Injunction

By Pilar Arias

The can ban has been a debate in the city of New Braunfels for more than five years.

Last week an appeals court ruled in favor of the city, saying a lower court erred in issuing an injunction against the law passed in 2011 that banned cans and coolers from the Guadalupe and Comal rivers.

On Monday, city officials will receive information from their attorneys about the case between tubing outfitters and the city. However, Mayor Barron Casteel says the legal process is far from over and he doesn’t expect any changes to be happening any time soon.

“Because an opinion came down, that doesn’t mean that that opinion is the final order or an actionable order,” Casteel said.
