The City Council is expected to vote tonight on a proposed $63.6-million budget that balances the city's books without increasing taxes or substantially cutting services. The council will examine a revised budget that takes into account comments and suggestions that council members made two weeks ago, when they first studied the proposal. The council has given a generally warm reception to City Manager Paul O. Brady Jr.'

A low-key celebration of the city's 20th birthday begins Sunday with the opening of an agricultural display in the Civic Center plaza. Irvine turns 20 on Dec. 28. To celebrate, the city has set up 15 farm implements in the plaza to honor the city's past, when agriculture and animal grazing were the two main activities on the sprawling Irvine Ranch. From noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, members of the Irvine Historical Society will lead tours and answer questions about the equipment.

Henry Korn, who as Santa Monica's arts administrator for the last four years was instrumental in bringing topiary dinosaurs to the 3rd Street Promenade and early morning Fourth of July fireworks to the beach, has resigned effective April 6 to take a similar post in Irvine. Korn, 44, said he is leaving because the new position in Orange County presents a "great opportunity in an exciting environment."

Amy Aspell, director of the Irvine Fine Arts Center since 1987, has been transferred to Citizens Assistance (another division of Irvine Community Services) as part of a fresh wave of restructuring caused by city budget cuts. Toni Pang, former superintendent of cultural affairs--a position that was eliminated in the reshuffling--will become director of the center when she returns from maternity leave in May. Tim Jahns, the center's educational coordinator, is serving as provisional director.

Thanks for calling attention to Irvine's ill-considered plan to dismiss Cultural Affairs Manager Henry Korn ("Proposed Layoff Decried," May 4). In the 2 1/2 years I've worked with him, Korn has demonstrated an unstinting commitment to the cultural enrichment of the city's residents, with a special emphasis on reaching out to the many new ethnic communities who now make Irvine their home. Given Korn's outstanding professional qualifications--not mere academic credentials, but the hands-on knowledge of the acclaimed writer, the productive diplomacy of the accomplished administrator--the issue is neither Korn nor budgets and organizational reshuffling.

The Santa Monica Arts Commission will celebrate the installation of "Singing Beach Chairs," the first permanent sculpture at Santa Monica Beach, at 5 p.m. today. The work by Douglas Hollis is composed of two 14-foot futuristic chairs with large stainless-steel tubes that produce melodic sounds when the wind blows. It is the first of 10 environmental sculptures that will be installed in a three-mile stretch along the beach as part of a Natural Elements Sculpture Park.

Cirque du Soleil, the popular contemporary circus troupe from Canada, is scheduled to appear here next spring as part of the Irvine Arts Festival, actually a series of events organized by city officials starting in two weeks and taking place over several months. Orange County's Gloria Newman Dance Theatre will launch the festival Oct. 28 at 2 p.m. with an outdoor presentation that--like all the events except Cirque du Soleil--will be free.

The controversy over "Moon Dial" in Beverly Hills is the loudest public-art battle in the Westside and San Fernando Valley area, but there have been others: In Burbank critics said "Requiem," a sculptural tribute to war veterans, looked like a giant bra. Sculptor Erwin Binder created the work at the request of City Councilman Michael Hastings, who came under fire from his fellow council members for encouraging the project. Bob Hope, however, held benefits to raise $50,000 to pay for it.

Irvine's cultural programs survived the city's budget ax Tuesday, the same day the city's Fine Arts Center received a boost from the National Endowment for the Arts. Although a two-year total of $430,000 was pared from fiscal 1991-93 budgets for various cultural programs--$100,000 more in cuts than originally proposed--there were no layoffs and the city's newly established Cultural Affairs Commission will remain in existence.

After agreeing to increases in arts and police funding, the City Council this week tentatively approved a $63.6-million budget for the 1993-94 fiscal year. The council's unanimous vote came early Wednesday after members reviewed and debated aspects of the plan. The budget balances the city's books without raising taxes or significantly cutting services. It was generally praised by council members, who requested relatively few modifications when they first examined the plan earlier this month.
