Bed Tax to Be Considered for Resort

August 12, 1997|DEBRA CANO

The City Council today will consider an agreement setting bed-tax rates with the owner of a time-share project near Disneyland.

The property owner is turning a 139-unit apartment complex on West Orangewood Avenue near Harbor Boulevard into a 136-unit resort called Dolphin's Cove.

Under the proposed agreement, the bed-tax amount would be $12 for each week of time-share interest sold. In addition, the operator would pay 15% in bed-tax for units rented on a daily basis.

The resort will feature California mission-style architecture with red tile roofs, two swimming pools, clubhouse and fitness center.

The council also will consider hiring Confidential Management Services Inc. of San Dimas to provide investigative services relating to personnel cases.

David Hill, human resources director, said the company will be used to conduct computer searches on new city employees, including background checks and verification of previous employment and educational credentials.

The company also may be asked to conduct investigations on allegations concerning city employee misconduct, he said.

With automated services, Hill said the company can perform the service "at a lower cost than the city."

The city also contracts with two other firms, Norm Traub and Associates of Placentia and Martin-Miser Associates Inc. of Irvine, for such services. Hill said the city will spend between $10,000 and $20,000 a year to contract for the services.

The meeting begins at 5 p.m. in Council Chambers, 200 S. Anaheim Blvd. Information: (714) 254-5166.
