The Huntington Beach Conference and Visitors Bureau voted 8 to 1 on Wednesday to terminate its visitors-guide publishing contract with a company that employs Mayor Dave Garofalo. The vote came a month after the bureau's board was advised by the city attorney that it should end the contract with Coatings Resource Corp., whose president bought the contract from Garofalo in January 1998 but kept the mayor on as a paid consultant.

A regional police helicopter unit formed three years ago in an effort to reduce costs and improve service has hit some significant turbulence, with two of its four member agencies likely to pull out this week. The Huntington Beach City Council will vote Monday on a proposal by the Police Department to withdraw from the Airborne Law Enforcement Services (ABLE) program, saying the expected cost savings of a regional operation never materialized.

A final meeting to attempt to clear up all differences is scheduled for June 4. If negotiators are unsuccessful, the dispute over the future of paramedic vans and staffing levels on fire engines will be handed over to a state-appointed arbitrator. Capt.

Women arrested in Costa Mesa may be detained in the Huntington Beach Jail under a contract approved this week by the City Council here. Costa Mesa officials requested to use the jail because they lack female officers to staff the jail in their city, Police Chief Ronald E. Lowenberg told the council. The agreement is expected to add 10 to 12 prisoners a month in Huntington Beach, "well within our ability to handle," Lowenberg said.

Led by Rep. Tim Roemer (D-Ind.), opponents of Space Station Freedom say they will try to strip from the 1993 federal budget virtually all of the $2.

House and Senate negotiators agreed Tuesday to spend $2.1 billion next year to continue building the controversial space station Freedom, scheduled for launch beginning in late 1995. Although the compromise figure is $125 million less than sought by the Bush Administration, officials of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration said the accord will permit work on the station to proceed on schedule.

Reacting to state Controller Gray Davis' call to penalize public officials who artificially inflate their pay to get larger pensions, a citizens' group Wednesday called for an investigation of Davis' charges that retiring city employees had engaged in the practice here. At a news conference, Huntington Beach Tomorrow, which says it has 1,000 members, requested that the city undertake its own inquiry to curb the pension-inflating practice, which Davis has dubbed "salary spiking."
