A new ordinance will require annual inspections of rental properties in three blighted areas of the city and will allow fees to be levied for violations of building and housing laws. Councilman Don Bankhead, who supported the ordinance, said people who live in blighted areas "asked us to help. This is why we're implementing this." Mayor Chris Norby had questioned whether the new law is constitutional. City Atty. Richard D. Jones responded that it is.

The City Council on Tuesday passed an ordinance that will prohibit adult businesses from opening within 750 feet of any church, school, park, playground or home. The law confines adult bookstores, video stores, bars and theaters to industrial zones. Those zones are on the north tip of town, east of Harbor Boulevard, on the west end by the Fullerton Airport and in the southeast off Raymond Avenue.

Sabrina Hall travels 25 miles from her Fullerton home to Costa Mesa once a week so she can let her dog Duke run free in that city's dog park. She would rather take the cocker spaniel someplace closer, but in Fullerton it is illegal to let dogs roam free, and violators are cited and fined. So Hall and a group of other dog owners have launched a campaign to open a "bark park." "We want a place to bring our dogs," Hall said Monday. "Dogs love to run and play."

A simmering debate over political signs in Fullerton--an issue in the last city election--is heating up again. In the 1994 city election season, resident W. Snow Hume, who is a City Council contender this time around, was accused by some candidates of stealing their campaign signs. Other residents complained about political placards in general, saying they littered the city.

After much debate and delay, City Council members Tuesday night repealed the controversial utility tax that caused the ouster of the three council members who voted to levy it. "It's time," Mayor Julie Sa said. "We have to repeal the tax tonight. It's time to get rid of the tax, forget about it and start concentrating on 1995." Sa publicly apologized for the county's financial crisis and then urged residents to help the city overcome any difficulties by volunteering their services.

An ordinance that bans public display of sexually explicit materials will become effective in a month. The ordinance, approved by the City Council this week, prohibits the display of "harmful matter" in news racks in any public right of way or place where minors are allowed. It replaces a city law that allows such displays provided that blinders are placed on the racks. City officials said their action was prompted by a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision allowing the banning of such material.

Fifteen businesses that rebuffed attempts by an undercover, underage police cadet to buy liquor have been recognized for their civic-mindedness in letters of commendation from the city's police chief. The cadet sought to buy liquor from 17 Fullerton businesses, and all but two turned him down, Police Chief Phil Goehring said. "It was certainly gratifying to find that the majority of our businesses which sell liquor operate in a responsible and ethical manner," Goehring said in a statement.

The City Council refused Tuesday night to extend a controversial 45-day restriction on the construction of large homes in the city, choosing to establish building guidelines to ensure that big houses will blend harmoniously into existing neighborhoods. The temporary measure was enacted June 2 after residents complained that many of the larger single-family homes being built in the city are not in character with existing residences.
