A divided City Council on Tuesday night gave final approval to a controversial daytime curfew, but the measure is not likely to survive beyond a month, according to council opponents. Councilman Tom Carroll said that he will move for repeal of the ordinance as soon as a new councilman, Tim Keenan, is seated. Keenan reaffirmed Tuesday night that he will vote to overturn it. Keenan and another newly elected council member, Anna Piercy, are scheduled to be installed Nov.

Two politically hot topics--a daytime curfew for youth and a pay raise for City Council members--are on the agenda for final passage at Tuesday's council session. Both ordinance won preliminary approval on first reading at the council's Oct. 28 meeting, both on 3-2 votes. If they pass Tuesday, they would take effect 30 days later. "I'll be voting for both," Mayor Walter K. Bowman said this week.

The City Council late Monday gave preliminary approval to a controversial ordinance that would impose a daytime curfew on some school-age youths. The measure, passed on a 3-2 vote, is a watered-down version of a proposal made earlier this year by county police officials, school superintendents and prosecutors. It would target youngsters between 6 and 18 caught skipping class without a valid excuse more than three times in a school year.

Citing a lack of citizen interest, Councilman Tom Carroll said he has dropped his crusade to tighten the city ordinance controlling leaf blowers. Carroll for weeks has been telling other council members that noisy leaf blowers need more regulation. After discussing the issue June 10, the council agreed to seek public comment, but nobody spoke up for change. "The public response is kind of underwhelming," Carroll joked.

Permits for temporary, modular buildings in the city will be given on a case-by-case basis, the City Council has determined. The council said a long-range policy on such temporary buildings may be decided after the city staff provides additional information. The issue came before the council last week when Community Development Director Chris Kelly said St. Irenaeus Church was requesting another three years' approval for a modular building used for day care.

A bill in the Legislature that would crack down on motels with permanent residents has drawn the support of the City Council. The council, heeding the advice of the League of California Cities, unanimously voted to support Senate Bill 2133. That measure calls for requiring motels having permanent residents to comply with the same housing codes as apartments.

The council will continue to meet on the second and fourth Mondays of the month, starting with a study session and closed session, if needed, at 5:30 p.m. Consent calendar items, formerly discussed at the 5:30 p.m. study session, now will be considered at the 7 p.m. meeting.

After heated comments from residents and a sharp debate, the City Council on Monday night tentatively approved stricter rules for political campaign signs. The new ordinance would allow the city to assess sign-removal costs to individuals or groups illegally posting them on telephone poles or other public property. The ordinance would cover all noncommercial signs.

A sweeping new ordinance that regulates such adult entertainment as adult bookstores and nude dancing is now in effect across the city. Though Cypress has no adult businesses, the City Council this week passed a so-called urgency measure that immediately became law and will apply to any that seek to open in the city. "The intent . . . is to address what are termed 'adverse secondary effects' that are caused by adult businesses," City Atty. John E. Cavanaugh said.

Foes of a plan for tougher restrictions on political signs lost another battle Monday night to block the proposal. Councilman Tom Carroll and Councilwoman Mary Ann Jones proposed to table an ordinance that would impose stricter penalties on illegally placed political signs. But they were outnumbered.
