Why have elections on local issues when the City Council won't listen? The voters said no to fireworks--backed by the firefighters, police and most other cities. Yet three of the Stanton council (members) feel the local clubs to which they belong need money, so they said to hell with what the people want, then placed their wants over the safety of people and property by repealing the fireworks ban. When are they going to learn that they are placed in their positions to represent the residents of their city--not for their desires?

A former mayor and police chief filed suit against the city Monday in Orange County Superior Court, alleging that the City Council has engaged in a "political pay-back" by not forcing a neighbor of his to obey zoning laws. Edward L. Allen, who served as councilman from 1985 to 1990 and police chief from 1960 to 1965, maintains that council members have allowed Lowell D.

Newport Pacific Development Corp., Newport Beach, said it received final approval to start a $61-million redevelopment project in downtown Stanton, which includes a new City Hall under a somewhat unusual agreement with the city. The city will use the profits from sale of the land for the first phase of the project--a $19-million, 335-unit residential community for the aged--to pay for building a new City Hall within two years. The third phase of the 22-acre project calls for building a retail center.

When the new City Council is seated later this month, the majority will consist of first-time council members. Newcomers Don Martinez, Harry M. Dotson and Joe V. Harris edged out challenger Rand W. Hogan and incumbent Mayor Edward L. Allen. Harris called it "a tough campaign." "I done this campaign the old-fashioned way--I earned this," Harris said. "I lost about 20 pounds walking around." Allen said he lost the race in part because he decided to spend less than $1,000 on his campaign.

Residents will be paying more for trash pickup next spring, with the increased fees going toward new "state-of-the-art" recycling services, Mayor Edward L. Allen said. The city has approved a new waste-management contract with Stanton-based CR&R Inc. The new system, which begins next March, will sort out recyclable glass, plastic and newspapers out of the city's trash, thus eliminating the need for residents to sort it.

The City Council unanimously decided this week to leave a vacant seat on the council open until the Nov. 6 election rather than appointing a replacement. "We've only got a few months until the election," said Mayor Edward L. Allen. The seat was left vacant by the resignation of Charles Babler, who stepped down for health reasons last month just before the council was set to reconfirm him as its newest member. Babler, 54, was unanimously approved as council member June 26, replacing Paul G.

Copies of last-minute campaign mailers must be provided to City Hall within two hours after their distribution, under a new ordinance. Modeled after an ordinance enacted by Newport Beach in August, the recently adopted law is intended to give candidates time to answer any last-minute allegations in opponents' flyers. It requires anyone distributing 200 or more campaign documents within two weeks of a city election to supply the city with 10 copies no later than two hours later.
