At a meeting of the Lake View Terrace Improvement Assn., a representative of the DWP gave us a copy of the emergency water conservation plan. It says all customers will be charged "a conservation surcharge" to offset temporary revenue losses. This is an absolute outrage. If they expect us to decrease the amount of water we use, then the amount of water they have to buy and pay for should be reduced substantially and so a surcharge to offset revenue losses is completely out of order.

When will the City of Los Angeles ever keep its word to its citizens? The latest step by the members of the Board of Public Works instructing the Bureau of Sanitation to make plans to keep the Lopez Canyon Landfill open beyond the current closure date of February, 1996, is a violation of the conditional use permit granted in 1991 for a period of five years. The people of Lake View Terrace and Kagel Canyon, who have borne out the brunt of this massive monster of garbage for 20 years, were promised in 1991 that this dump would shut down forever in 1996, and now the city is reneging on that promise.

Re "Planned Fare Hike Points Up Inequities in Bus, Rail Subsidies," June 18: I am no rocket scientist. However, when the MTA reports that it subsidizes the operating costs at a rate of $1.16 per passenger on its buses, except on its most crowded lines, which require subsidies of only 34 cents, then the answer to MTA's money problems seems to be to lower the fares, stupid! Obviously, the more passengers using the bus lines, the lower the costs. Let's go for it, folks. That's my tax money you are wasting, and it's got to stop.

Your story "Council Candidates in Valley Denounce Illegal Immigration" (Times Valley Edition, March 3) was edited in a way that indicates that illegal immigration was the chief topic of discussion by candidates for mayor and the 7th Council District at the March 1 meeting in Lake View Terrace. In truth, the meeting lasted more than three hours, during which the topics of fiscal responsibility of the council and the mayor, protection of the streets, homes, business places and schools in the city and community empowerment were the chief topics.

Lew Snow's comment in your Aug. 9 article on Orcas Park in Lake View Terrace, that "a number of people in the community . . . would like to see a small thermonuclear device dropped on the park," does not represent the views of the majority of citizens in this area. Lake View Terrace is a well integrated area of neighbors of all colors and beliefs and ethnic origins, who have joined together in recycling campaigns, clean-up and anti-graffiti days and who joined together in an amazing effort to keep this area quiet during the rioting that followed the verdict in the Rodney G. King matter.

A comprehensive plan to restore the Hansen Dam Recreation Area is one of the top issues the Lake View Terrace Improvement Assn. wants addressed under the new administration of Mayor Richard Riordan. Members say the reconstruction of the city-run park must be made a priority to ensure a safe recreational outlet that could bring employment and enhance the image of Lake View Terrace and surrounding communities.

An organization that three weeks ago abandoned plans to put a drug-treatment center in Lake View Terrace has asked for a month's extension of the time before a city hearing on the project, suggesting to opponents that it may still be alive. In Lake View Terrace, opponents of the Nancy Reagan Center reacted with alarm Friday to news of the request by Phoenix House, which will be heard Tuesday by the city Board of Zoning Appeals. They said it could mean that, like the mythical phoenix, plans for the center are rising from their ashes.

The head of a Los Angeles film location service said Friday that he is studying the feasibility of turning the defunct Lake View Medical Center into a movie studio. Scott Osberg, the chief operating officer for Reel to Reel, said his company is studying methods to turn the abandoned hospital--once proposed as a drug treatment center to be named after former First Lady Nancy Reagan--into a "small studio with a campus-type atmosphere."
