Saying it saves both time and money, the City Council is continuing a cooperative arrangement with Buena Park for the handling of police paperwork involving court cases. Since 1986, La Palma police have contracted with their counterparts in Buena Park for "court liaison services." Those services involve scheduling the court appearances of police officers who make arrests and must testify at trials. Buena Park police also monitor the court dockets for cases involving La Palma.

The city is not exactly sending Mr. Smith to Washington, but it has agreed to send the next best thing--a professional lobbyist. Although two of its members were uncomfortable with the notion, the City Council voted 4 to 1 Monday to hire a Washington, D.C.-based firm that will try to secure federal dollars for city projects. "Let's be honest," Councilman Donald L. Bone said. "It's an election year, and the squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Some residents have formed a group to fight the city's contracting with the county for firefighting services, but factions were already splitting off after the first presentation at this week's City Council meeting. Terry Longacer read a long mission statement from the "Voters in Action" committee seeking to reverse the May 16 decision to close the city's Fire Department.

A city finance department analysis shows that Buena Park would save about $354,000 the first year if Orange County Fire Department provides fire services to the city. But the analysis revealed that by 1998-99, based on a five-year historical average of county and city cost increases, there may be no savings to the city. "Theoretically, the county contract would cost more than if the city maintained its own department," said Finance Director Greg Beaubien.

More than 80 residents showed up at Monday night's City Council meeting to voice concerns about a proposal to contract with the county for fire services. Last May, the cash-strapped city asked the Orange County Fire Department for a cost study. That study offers options with costs ranging from $4.4 million to $4.7 million a year. Residents said using the county Fire Department could increase paramedics response time and homeowner fire insurance rates.

The city's Fire Department will shut down in October as the result of a City Council vote just after midnight Tuesday to contract with the county for fire protection. The action was proposed as a cost-saving measure. The council voted 4 to 1, with Councilman Don R. Griffin dissenting, to use county firefighters for both fire protection and paramedic services, beginning Oct. 1. About 170 people attended the meeting, which lasted long into the night at the Senior Center.

For the first time in eight years, the city will open its landscaping contract for bids, rather than automatically renewing the existing agreement. The City Council, which recently saved $57,000 by seeking new bids for its street-sweeping contract, has decided to do the same for landscaping, on which it now spends $331,000 annually. The landscaper will be responsible for keeping up 100 acres of parkland, miles of medians, tree wells and city signs.
