Fullerton City Council

Regarding the story on Fullerton City Council meetings ("Fullerton Council Told to Clean Up Its Meetings," June 20), The Times must recognize that democracy is not always neat and pretty. Elected bodies meet to air differences, not enforce conformity. Since 1993, our council has increased opportunities for public comments, begun televising meetings, been subject to a recall election and seen the addition of fresh, new, articulate members. All this has combined to make our meetings livelier, and sometimes civility has been strained.

On Oct. 19, your newspaper inaccurately reported that I support a controversial utility tax in Fullerton. The following day, I was misquoted again when your paper related that I support that tax "unless it can be repealed without causing cuts in city services." My position is and always has been to allow the tax to terminate as scheduled in September, 1995. To rescind the tax sooner would require the city to cut services commensurate with the revenue reduction or dip into reserves.

Fullerton resident Jane Parker has been appointed chairwoman of the Board of Trustees at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center Foundation, replacing Beverly Gunter, who is now vice president in charge of programs. Harold Muckenthaler, whose father built the center in 1924, was installed as associate trustee. On Aug. 6, the Fullerton City Council awarded a contract for $575,978 to Goodman and Peloquin of Fullerton to start work on the first phase of the center's renovation.

The July 23 article on trees being torn out in the downtown area by the city of Fullerton cries out for comment. We have a person in Fullerton whose job is titled "city risk manager?" Sounds like the city should be in for some scathing satire on that one. Beyond the job silliness though, has the city contemplated the comparative look of a "virtually treeless" city like downtown Anaheim or the new Brea with our downtown look? Maybe the beauty of the city is more important than the "bucks" spent on taking care of it?

As expected, the Fullerton City Council voted against funding the second phase of a study of the commercial and industrial potential of the area surrounding the city's airport. As reported earlier this week, the initial stage of the study found that a surplus of commercial and industrial space in nearby cities, combined with the airport area's distance from freeways, lack of identity and haphazard development, precludes significant additional development in the area for at least five years.

There are so many people running for the Fullerton City Council that it looks like a cavalry charge, but how can we tell the qualified candidates from those who just like to run? How can a voter determine who has common sense and who will say anything to get elected? One good way is to look for logical consistency. Over the last four years, Fullerton's operating funds budget has declined from $48.5 million to $45.3 million. In response, the city has reduced its work force by 13% since 1991--nearly 100 positions.

Orange County prosecutors asked the state attorney general's office Wednesday to investigate claims that a longtime Fullerton City Council member has violated election rules by living outside the city. The request followed a complaint filed last week with Fullerton city officials alleging that Councilwoman Julie Sa lives in an upscale Chino Hills home but rents an apartment in Fullerton so she can keep her council seat, authorities said.

A South Korean garment manufacturer hoping to open a finishing plant in Fullerton won the city's support this week. The Fullerton City Council in a special session Thursday voted unanimously to give the California Statewide Communities Development Authority permission to issue $4 million in federal and state tax-free bonds to help finance the project. K.U.M. Ltd., a subsidiary of Kum Kyung Ltd. of Seoul, intends to open the plant in Fullerton early in 1993. Hyong Byun, K.U.M.'
