Arguing that spending $1.3 million to beautify the Civic Arts Plaza was not a wise use of taxpayer money, the City Council has decided to pare a jumble of proposed improvements down to freeway signs and other minimum necessities. In an unusual pairing, Councilman Andy Fox sided with Councilwomen Linda Parks and Elois Zeanah, voting to pursue signs, pedestrian lighting and improvements to the building's cooling and fire suppression systems, but nothing more.

There's always some kind of project waiting to be done at a small but busy general store like the Elmore Store. Like so many similar stores around Vermont, it is the town meeting place, somewhere to stop for a dozen eggs, pick up the daily mail and catch up on a bit of local gossip. But, like other stores, it needs repairs that owners Kathy and Warren Miller would like to make but cannot afford, at least not right now.

A plan for carrying out more than $54 million in capital improvement projects over the next seven years was approved this week by the City Council. Cities must submit capital improvement plans to the Orange County Transportation Authority each year to be eligible for funding from Measure M, which was approved by county voters in 1990.

The City Council on Tuesday will review a plan for more than $54 million in capital improvements over the next seven years. Many of the proposals would be in conjunction with the widening of the Santa Ana Freeway. Among roadways scheduled for improvements are Harbor and State College boulevards, Ball Road, Katella and La Palma avenues, and Euclid Street. Construction on the freeway itself is set to begin in December in Anaheim and continue into 2000.

The City Council this week adopted a $37-million budget for fiscal 1996-97 that will maintain the current level of services without increasing fees. Councilman John J. Collins pointed out that Fountain Valley has now balanced its budget for nine years without having to dip into reserves--"a prudent approach." The council on Tuesday also adopted a $23.7-million operating budget, an increase of 1.56%, or $364,591, over last year's.

The City Council has sent a proposed $56-million capital-improvement budget to the Planning Commission for review. Commissioners will evaluate how well the budget--which covers roads, waste-water systems and other projects to be funded over the next two years--complies with the city's General Plan. The council may then vote on the proposed budget following a public hearing scheduled May 14. During a budget workshop Tuesday, council members made their first changes to the spending plan.

What does this city really need most? A skateboard park for its youth or a face lift for a crumbling old building? Bathrooms for its Seaward Avenue beaches or a sturdy sound wall for an eastern Ventura neighborhood? Those were the questions before the Ventura City Council on Monday, and council members debated late into the evening how to ration $118 million set aside for capital improvement projects in the next six years.

Funding for continued construction of the massive Santa Ana River flood control project was included in President Clinton's $1.6-trillion budget submitted to Congress on Monday. But the status of other major Orange County projects remains in doubt as the Administration refines its spending and as the dust settles from the Orange County bankruptcy.
