As she prepares for a bruising San Diego City Council runoff, land-use planner Linda Bernhardt on Friday received the endorsement of a former opponent whose votes she must attract in order to unseat 5th District Councilman Ed Struiksma in November. At a news conference outside City Hall, Bernhardt, the first-place finisher in Tuesday's primary, was endorsed by former City Councilman Floyd Morrow, who was eliminated when he finished third in the five-candidate race behind Bernhardt and Struiksma.

When the City Council takes up the subject of whether to fill the vacancy created by Roger Hedgecock's resignation by appointment or special election, it should be a rather brief discussion. Holding an election is the only way to go. Unfortunately, there is a move afoot to have the council name Councilman Bill Cleator to serve as mayor until the next municipal elections take place in the fall of 1987.

San Diego City Atty. John Witt on Wednesday admonished five members of the City Council to avoid private meetings that could be considered a violation of the state's open meetings laws. Witt's rebuke came after council members Ed Struiksma, Mike Gotch, Uvaldo Martinez, Bill Cleator and Judy McCarty met with about 70 community and business leaders to discuss options for bailing out the San Diego Symphony.

A vote by the San Diego City Council to place a proposed police pay increase on the June ballot was delayed Monday until Feb. 11 so the city attorney's office can clarify what it says are legal problems with the initiative. The measure, sponsored by the San Diego Police Officers' Assn., calls for a one-time pay increase of up to 17% for police officers, which could cost the city an additional $10 million.

Montgomery Field officials have notified pilots with planes based at the airport that they can no longer perform "touch-and-go" operations from sunset to 6:30 a.m. "The city manager's office has instructed us to penalize violators by restricting the use of the airport or prohibiting the use of the airport" if pilots perform such maneuvers, Terry Price, the airport 's noise-abatement officer, said Thursday.

Looking for the answer to an old riddle, the San Diego City Council on Monday voted to ask the San Diego Assn. of Governments (Sandag) to again study what should be done with Lindbergh Field downtown. The council's decision arose out of a discussion of what to do with 715 acres at North Island Naval Air Station under the city's jurisdiction. The City of Coronado wants to annex the land. Although San Diego city officials originally agreed to Coronado's request, they had second thoughts on Monday.

The San Diego City Council on Tuesday adopted a standby ordinance outlining the procedures it would use to limit home building citywide or in individual neighborhoods in the event of an emergency. The 6-2 council vote gives the city legislation it will "put on the shelf" for use if population growth from new residential construction outstrips the capacity of roads, schools, sewers or public facilities, according to Planner Tom Farrar. "Let's hope we never have to use this," said Deputy Mayor Judy McCarty, who, with Councilman Bruce Henderson, opposed the measure.

Acting Mayor Ed Struiksma dropped out of the mayoral race here Thursday night, according to his campaign manager, hours after the district attorney's office decided to launch a full-scale investigation into Struiksma's travel expenses on a city-paid trip to the East Coast in 1984. David Lewis, Struiksma's campaign adviser, said the decision to pull out of the hotly contested race was made because "the City of San Diego shouldn't have to be dragged through this anymore."
