Proposed beach or park projects will be placed on the ballot only after they have received all city approvals, the City Council has decided. Voters in 1990 overwhelmingly passed Measure C, which gives people the right to vote on construction proposed on beach or park land. But the measure left unclear at what stage a project should be put to a vote of the people, whether it should be advisory on a project's master plan or a final vote on an approved project.

After four years of tinkering, the City Council approved a new sign code this week that allows larger signs on the busiest streets in Huntington Beach. Planning commissioners suggested that by allowing slightly larger signs, the city might motivate business owners to replace old and ugly ones. No residents spoke against the ordinance at Monday's meeting.

City officials here apparently didn't spring forward with the rest of the country when daylight saving time started on April 6. The city's long-debated ordinance aimed at quelling July 4 riots by regulating public drinking officially runs from noon today until noon Sunday PST. That's Pacific Standard Time. Trouble is, we're on Pacific Daylight Time. Noon today, Pacific Daylight Time, is 11 a.m. Pacific Standard Time. Does that mean police can start cracking down on drinkers an hour earlier?

To accommodate the developing trend of daylong bingo games, the City Council has introduced a measure to extend the length of time that the fund-raising games can last. Under an ordinance introduced this week, the council would allow groups for one week each year to host bingo games that could last as long as 12 hours. Or, if groups prefer, during that week they could instead hold three six-hour games within seven days.

For the first time in recent years, city officials may allow bicyclists to walk--but not ride--their two-wheelers on the pier. The city staff is expected to recommend such a policy when a proposed ordinance returns to the City Council for final approval next month. The new rule is aimed at helping bicycle owners who now have to park their vehicles and risk theft and loss if they wish to take a stroll on the pier. Bikes have long been taboo on the pier, whether pushed or pedaled.

The City Council has adopted a new way of charging penalties on late payments to the city. The change came after Treasurer Donald L. Watson told the council that the city's existing late-charge system was both unfair and a disincentive for residents to pay bills more than one month overdue. "The method we've had was unfair in that it charged a large penalty, 10%, on the first month the account was late, and only 0.5% each month thereafter," said Watson.

With record crowds expected, Huntington Beach officials have decided to close the 3 1/2 miles of city beach at dusk this Fourth of July weekend. "The safest way (to prevent crime) is to close the beach before trouble starts," said Police Lt. Charles R. Poe. "We don't have the resources to handle the potential problems. We don't have the resources to ensure a safe beach." The self-styled Surf City expects record crowds this weekend of 100,000 to 200,000 beach-goers, Poe said.

The City Council has given the go-ahead to a package of recommendations that would place new controls on graffiti, but council members delayed acting against the city's controversial seawall art program, which police and some residents blame for an increase in the graffiti problem. By a 7-0 vote, the council Monday night adopted all the suggestions of a subcommittee that has been studying the city's graffiti program.

City Councilman Jim Silva confirmed Thursday that he will switch his vote Monday and thus probably kill a proposed ordinance allowing automatic succession of council members to the position of mayor. "I have no problem about changing my vote," Silva said. "I really had reservations about voting the way I did the first time, immediately after I had voted." Silva said he had not been pressured into changing his stance.
