Horseshoe Bay Resort changes management

Ownership of the AAA Four Diamond Horseshoe Bay Resort, the Jaffe Group, has entered into a management agreement with Crescent Hotels & Resorts that will lead to a multi-million dollar expansion.
Crescent, based in Fairfax, Virginia, is a nationally recognized operator of hotels and resorts with properties throughout Unites States and Canada. The announcement of the Aug. 3 agreement concludes a two-year exhaustive search by ownership of the resort for an operator who showed the talent and experience required to run Horseshoe Bay Resort.
“We are thrilled to have Crescent Hotels & Resorts at Horseshoe Bay Resort,” said M.D. Jaffe, Jr., chairman of Horseshoe Bay Resort. “We believe that Crescent is the correct choice for Horseshoe Bay Resort and we look forward to what they will do here with their vast knowledge and expertise in the hotel and resort industry.”

Horseshoe Bay city officials say residents who want to run for places coming open on the city council can pick up election packets now at city hall.
The terms of council members Craig Haydon, David Pope and Jerry Gray will expire this year. The council at its meeting Tuesday, July 19 set Nov. 8 as the date when voters will fill those places. That’s the same date as the upcoming presidential election.
While election packets are available now, the first day for filing is Monday, July 25. Filing closes on Monday, Aug. 22.
If only three people file for the three council seats, no election will be needed and the three candidates can be declared elected. If more than three candidates file, the three highest vote-getters in the election will fill the seats.

Horseshoe Bay will continue handling its white-tailed deer overpopulation the way it has been, since a study group appointed to look at the matter couldn’t come up with a better alternative.
City council members heard on June 21 that the study group, chaired by City Manager Stan Farmer, met four times beginning in February, to examine ways to reduce the number of deer in the city. The group included Ravelle Kundinger, John Davis and Rick Prekup, though Mayor Steve Jordan also met with them, as did Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept. representatives Dale Schmidt and Kevin Schwausch, Lower Colorado River Authority wildlife managers Bill Bergquist and Brandon Smith, veterinarian Dr. Garret Craig, and deer trapper James Bonds, who has the deer removal contract with the city.
