Goodbye, chad. Voters in Arcadia will be the first in Los Angeles County to cast their ballots exclusively with touch-screen technology Tuesday when they elect two school board members, according to the county registrar-recorder's office. In the neighboring Pasadena Unified School District, which includes Pasadena, Altadena and Sierra Madre, voters will stick to the traditional punch-card method to choose two school board members.

An Arcadia citizens group can begin collecting voter signatures for a ballot initiative to stop a proposed $100-million entertainment village at Santa Anita Park now that the the city clerk has determined that the measure's style and language comply with legal requirements.

There's a twist to Arcadia's mail-in election on a proposed annual fire service assessment. Under election rules, votes are weighted according to how much tax a property owner pays. But the largest property owner--the city--is abstaining from the balloting. The City Council late Tuesday voted unanimously to allow other property owners to decide the fate of the assessment district, which would provide $2.2 million a year for fire suppression.

Arcadia residents will vote in April on a proposal to raise the city's utility tax from 5% to 7%. The City Council this week agreed to place the issue on the ballot, with only Councilman Sheng Change dissenting. He says he is opposed to any additional burden on taxpayers. The additional tax would raise an estimated $1.4 million annually for the city. Earlier this year, property owners rejected plans for a fire assessment district that would have generated about $2 million annually.

Struggling to close a budget shortfall, Arcadia will ask property owners this summer to vote by mail on a special tax that would generate $2.2 million annually for fire services. The City Council, facing the prospect of eliminating at least a dozen jobs and some city services, will instead ask property owners for more money under a new state law that allows mail-in elections on assessments.

The Arcadia City Council may have to layoff dozens of employees and cut programs after property owners voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to reject a new $2.2-million assessment for fire services. The assessment would have freed up funds for other uses and helped the city overcome a $2-million budget shortfall. "We said to property owners what do you want . . . less services or higher taxes?" said Mayor Robert Harbicht. "They have spoken. They want us to cut services."

Three incumbents on the Arcadia school board will keep their seats for a new term without an election because they were unopposed, city officials said. Maryann Gibson, John McClain and James C. Romo will serve four more years. They were the only candidates to file for office by the Friday deadline. Romo, an attorney whose law firm provides legal counsel to school districts across the state, was selected by his colleagues to fill a vacant seat on the five-member body in 1997.

An Arcadia citizens group will turn in an initiative petition that, if it qualifies for the November ballot, would let voters decide whether they should approve any changes to the use of the grounds at Santa Anita Park. The prospective ballot measure comes in the wake of Santa Anita's controversial plan that it recently withdrew for a $100-million entertainment center in the horse racing track's 120-acre parking lot.
