City employees will get a little extra in their stockings this Christmas. When City Council members realized the city had a budget surplus of $10 million, they decided unanimously last week to allocate $1.4 million of it toward giving the city's employees a 4% bonus in December.

City leaders today will consider cutting Irvine's budget for fiscal 1997-98 to anticipate the loss of millions of dollars in property tax assessments as a result of Proposition 218. Irvine relies on special assessment districts to pay for street lighting as well as landscaping of parks and public properties. Proposition 218 limits cities' means of raising revenue for those purposes. The law, approved by voters statewide in November, takes effect July 1.

A budget discussion this week became heated over allocation of funds to the city's annual fireworks show, money that Councilman Barry Hammond complained would go to the police union that runs the event. "The bottom line is, we're being asked to give $5,000 to a labor union," Hammond told his City Council colleagues. "I have some real problems with any public funds going to a labor union for any reason at all."

The City Council has approved a $58.9-million operations budget for fiscal 1995-96 that will bring no cuts in city services, but questions remain about the long-term effects of potential losses from the collapse of Orange County's investment pool. Irvine had $208 million in the pool, more than any other city, when the county filed Dec. 6 for bankruptcy protection. The county has returned $170 million to the city, leaving Irvine $38 million short.

Under the proposed budget, the city will hire three additional police officers.

In response to sluggish tax revenue, the City Council has voted for $1.6 million in budget cuts through a series of layoffs and belt-tightening measures. About five full-time workers and three part-time workers will lose their jobs under the budget plan, which also calls for the freezing of 22 city positions.

The City Council has approved a fiscal 1994-95 budget that increases the city's reserves without raising taxes or cutting services. The $59-million general fund budget balances the city's books while adding about $3 million to its reserve fund. No major cutbacks were proposed by City Manager Paul O. Brady Jr. Earlier in the year, the city eliminated 70 jobs in an effort to close a $4.5-million budget shortfall. Some workers were laid off, while others decided to take early retirement.
