* SUMMER JOBS: Approved a proposal by Councilman Mark Ridley-Thomas requesting that the federal government allocate an additional $21 million for this year's Summer Youth Employment and Training Program. Currently, the city is to receive $17 million, which would provide 11,400 jobs. The city had expected $50 million, which would provide 25,000 jobs.

* LIBRARY GRANT: Approved a state grant for $398,861 that will be used to help pay for the renovation of the Lincoln Heights Library.

* STREET RENAMING: Approved changing the name of Brighton Avenue between Adams and Jefferson boulevards to Stennis Avenue in honor of businessman Bill Stennis, who died in May. Stennis was the founder of the Golden Bird restaurant chain.


How South-Central and Eastside representatives voted on selected issues.

* LIQUOR STORES: Approved a proposal to provide business owners with an incentive not to rebuild liquor stores that were damaged or destroyed during last year's riots. About $1.2 million in city permit fees would be waived for those owners who convert their former liquor stores to self-service laundries. Businesses will have as long as two years to convert. Passed: 10-0. Voting yes: Joan Milke Flores, Mike Hernandez, Nate Holden, Ridley-Thomas and Rita Walters. Absent: Richard Alatorre.

* HIV/AIDS GRANT: Approved a proposal to accept a $44,000 county grant to hire a specialist to provide homeless people living on Skid Row with educational information on HIV/AIDS and where to receive treatment. Passed: 13-0. Voting yes: Alatorre, Flores, Hernandez, Holden, Ridley-Thomas and Walters.

* BRADLEY'S RECORDS: Approved a proposal that permits the records of Mayor Tom Bradley's administration to be kept at UCLA. The records will be accessible to the public. Aides to the mayor said they believed that UCLA's expertise and resources will ensure that the documents are more readily accessible to scholars and the public than would be possible at the city's archives. Bradley attended UCLA. Passed: 10-0. Voting yes: Flores, Holden, Ridley-Thomas and Walters. Absent: Alatorre and Hernandez.
