When it comes to a healthy California economy and the preservation of manufacturing jobs, our politicians are a day late and a dollar short. Typical is the sobbing and whimpering of Assemblyman Richard Katz over the closure of the General Motors Van Nuys plant, scheduled in 1992. Where was Katz in 1989, when GM was looking for help and direction as it planned its facility usage in a changing market? County Supervisor Mike Antonovich made contacts with GM's Detroit leaders, and received tentative commitments to look at electric car production as a possibility.

The voters in June approved Proposition 70, which was sold to the electorate as a state parks and recreation program for our future. However, Joe Edmiston, executive director of the Santa Monica Conservancy, seems to think (Letters, July 29) that most of the $770 million in taxpayer dollars authorized (plus $1.5 billion interest costs) should go to finance open-space land grabs. No active parks for inner-city people. No recreational facilities for metropolitan-area citizens. But millions of dollars to buy land for wilderness wanderers, horse owners and hikers who live next door to the refuge areas.

The article (June 30) on Stephanie Nordlinger's challenge to Proposition 13 and the Los Angeles County assessment policy raises some timely issues. As an attorney, Nordlinger's fairness attack on the Proposition 13 limits and tax guidelines is totally misdirected. And, if she had closely read Proposition 13, her intelligence would redirect her challenges to the codes and policies that have been written and implemented by the state Legislature and the bureaucrats. Since Proposition 13 in 1978, the entire California government revenue policy has been to maximize all revenues by any loophole found in Proposition 13. The issue of paying more than her neighbor for property-related services is brought forth by Nordlinger.

As the streetwalkers parade on Sunset Boulevard, soliciting business and paying little in taxes, so stand the billboards of the Ventura Freeway corridor through Calabasas and Agoura Hills. Both the prostitutes and the signs, with skinny legs, sell their bodies while avoiding legitimate taxation. It was ironic that you published "Billboard Alley Blues" on Feb. 7. Exactly 21 years ago you published a huge picture and a caption that "Agoura blossoms . . . with signs." In that story about billboard alley, there were statements by Herbert Grosswendt, Chamber of Commerce president, and the late Agoura pioneer, Judy Kanan, about how the wall-to-wall signs were destroying the scenery and landscape.

Regarding the Speaking Out article by Jenny Erickson ("Property Tax Transfers Hit Gridlock," July 16): The essence of government is to implement laws and serve the people. Apparently, this is not the case in the offices of the assessor and tax collector. I was outraged upon finding that Proposition 60 was being "bungled" and stalled in the Hall of Administration bureaucracy. As a result, thousands of senior citizens who have sold their homes and re-purchased residences in Los Angeles County under Proposition 60 may have tax liens upon their properties.

Atemporary moratorium on new construction in Agoura Hills that is designed to give the city time to draft a zoning ordinance has been extended to Aug. 5. The City Council voted 4 to 0 for the extension Tuesday night. Council members first authorized the building ban on Feb. 4 to free city planners for the zoning work. Councilman Ernest Dynda, who opposed the original moratorium, abstained from voting on the extension.

A citizens' group in Agoura Hills launched a recall drive Thursday against four of the city's five council members. The group, United Neighbors of Agoura Hills, said that council members Louise Rishoff, Fran Pavley, Vicky Leary and Mayor Pro Tem Darlene McBane have catered to the influential Old Agoura neighborhood at the expense of the business community, especially in handling a recent controversy over Medfield Street. Los Angeles County closed the street Aug.

In a snub to the councilman responsible for their city's creation, Agoura Hills officials have named Councilwoman Fran Pavley to a second term as mayor. Pavley, who was the city's first mayor after incorporation in late 1982, was chosen on a 4-0 vote Tuesday night to replace Councilwoman Vicky Leary in the honorary position. Councilman Jack W. Koenig was picked to be mayor pro tem. The terms last for one year.

The new Agoura Hills City Council on Monday night unanimously selected Vicky Leary mayor and Fran Pavley mayor pro tem. Leary and Pavley, along with new council members Jack W. Koenig and Darlene McBane, are expected to try to slow development in the 3-year-old city. Ernest Dynda, the fifth council member, is considered to favor development. Pavley, who sought reelection on a slow-growth platform, was top vote-getter in last month's election. Koenig and McBane campaigned for similar controls.

Agoura Hills officials have called for the use of radar to enforce speed laws on accident-plagued Kanan Road, where a collision last month killed three teen-age San Fernando Valley beach-goers and the driver of a speeding stolen car. The City Council voted, 5 to 0, Wednesday night to ask Los Angeles County supervisors to request state approval for California Highway Patrol officers to use radar on the 13-mile, cross-mountain route.
