Environmental concern--never before a big political item in this one-time oil boom town--is the overriding issue in this year's city election. Ten candidates are competing for four City Council seats in the Nov. 6 election, which also features two city ballot measures and a race for the elected position of city attorney. Pro-growth vs. slow-growth and protection of parks and beaches are among the environmental issues being debated by the City Council candidates.

The Huntington Beach City School District hasn't had a school-bond election in nearly 40 years. And the Laguna Beach Unified School District has never had one in its more than 120-year history. Both streaks will end June 5 when voters in those districts go to the polls in special elections. The $25-million Huntington Beach City School District bond measure faces minor grass-roots opposition. The $39-million Laguna Beach bond measure has no organized opposition.

A beach-parks protection initiative that voters approved last November will not prevent the city from building a long-proposed paved parking lot near the beach, City Atty. Gail Hutton said Monday. Hutton said the city can proceed, without voter approval, with the construction of a 300-space parking lot on the beach side of Pacific Coast Highway between 11th and Golden West streets.

The communities are different, but their educational straits are similar: campuses crammed with portable buildings, electrical wiring too feeble to support the latest technology, sagging infrastructure, and heating and cooling systems on the fritz. It's a lousy setting for teaching kids, school officials in the Capistrano, Huntington Beach and Santa Ana districts decided. So all three this month are seeking multimillion-dollar school bonds to repair aging campuses and build new ones.

Watson, who retired last fill, stepped down from the post March 28 and returned to his former position as the city's finance director.

The police union's accusations of political sign tampering have angered two council members who say their reelection campaigns are being falsely implicated. The Police Officers' Assn. last week offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone caught stealing or defacing a political sign. A union representative said their campaign posters were being "systematically defaced and destroyed by the opposition."

Voters in Huntington Beach will be asked next year to ban rent control at mobile home parks, apartments and single-family homes. The only catch: There is no rent control in Huntington Beach. The measure is a preemptive strike against a possible move for rent control within the city's 18 mobile home parks. Mobile-home park residents have complained in recent years about rising rents in the coastal community.

Citizen participation has never been a problem in this municipal hotbed of activists and grass-roots organizations. A dozen candidates are seeking election to three City Council seats in November, including three incumbents seeking to remain on the seven-member council. And yet the number seems small compared to the dizzying assortment of 22 candidates on the ballot two years ago when the fate of the Bolsa Chica wetlands was still up in the air.
