Efforts by Los Angeles officials to end a feud over a ritzy private girls school in Brentwood have fizzled, leaving the struggle in the hands of a judge. Opponents of a plan to convert the Eastern Star Home into a campus for the Archer School have sued the city in hopes of keeping 235 girls from moving into the historic Sunset Boulevard mansion in September. The city failed to fully investigate traffic and environmental problems before the City Council voted 13-0 on Dec.

The City Council voted Wednesday to refund $500,000 to Los Angeles property owners who were billed sewer service charges even though they are connected to septic tanks. "People shouldn't be charged for services they are not receiving," Councilwoman Cindy Miscikowski said. About 25,000 Los Angeles property owners--many of them in the San Fernando Valley--dump their sewage into septic tanks or the county sewer system.

Under pressure from Canoga Park homeowners, the Los Angeles Planning Commission Thursday turned back a proposal to build an apartment house on a narrow Saticoy Street lot. The commission rejected a zoning change that would have enabled property owner Keene W. Thomas to build the multifamily project.
