According to the press, Councilman Dean Maulhardt feels the voters should decide whether the Planning Commission should be restored in Oxnard. He stated this when the petition containing 6,200 signatures was submitted to the city clerk to require an election on restoring the commission. Maulhardt, his council cronies and the city manager forced the unwanted land-use advisers and hearing officer on us. Three weeks ago, when ex-Mayor Jane Tolmach asked the council to either restore the commission or to schedule an election in accordance with the overwhelming wishes of voters and before the signatures were turned in, Maulhardt was strangely silent.

From the beginning, Jane Tolmach had two strikes against her: She was a woman in the predominantly male field of politics and a Democrat in a Republican-dominated county. Yet that never stopped this strong-willed woman with crisp blue eyes in her evolution from 1950s housewife to political activist to the first woman elected to the Oxnard City Council. Today at 75, she remains active in Oxnard's political scene.

Oxnard is in the midst of spending a million or two preparing for adoption of a Redevelopment Project covering most of the city. By the time the plan is drawn, they may not have enough council members who can vote on the proposal. Currently, only two councilmen can vote on the matter because of conflicts of interest. One of those two is not running for reelection. Gambling with one or two million of our tax dollars that they will have to support after Nov. 8 is reckless. I urged the council to stop the massive spending now and halt activity on the plan study until at least after the election.

Individuals serving on the county's Assessment Appeals Boards will now be paid $50 less for meetings under four hours and $50 more for meetings that exceed the four-hour limit. Currently, board members are paid $150 per meeting, regardless of the length. County Clerk Richard Dean estimated the change in compensation would save the county about $7,500 a year, because most meetings are shorter than four hours. The two, three-member appeals boards are composed of Supervisor John K.

The Oxnard City Council has delayed action on a proposal to streamline agendas by granting staff members authority now reserved for council members. The absence of Councilman Michael A. Plisky, who is out of town at a tax consulting conference, prompted Mayor Manuel M. Lopez to request that consideration of the plan be delayed Tuesday. "On matters of importance, it's only proper that the entire council be present," Lopez said.

On Jan. 6, I attended a meeting of the county Environmental Report Review Committee, which was considering a draft of the Oxnard Airport's master plan environmental impact report outlining projects that could take place over the next 20 years. The notice of the meeting was inadequate because it did not include the proposed replacement of the existing airport master plan (1987) with a new draft airport master plan update. The EIR inadequately addressed the impacts of the draft airport master plan by tangling up the language about what they were doing and concluded that there would not be any impact!

City officials say they intend to continue scrutinizing the elaborate in-house training program that began during the tenure of recently fired City Manager Tom Frutchey. The City Council received a glowing hourlong presentation on the program's merits Tuesday night that was greeted with skepticism by the panel majority that voted for Frutchey's termination. Moreover, resident Jane Tolmach, a former mayor and frequent Frutchey critic, pushed the council to kill the program.

After dismantling its widely criticized Land Use Advisors panel last month, Oxnard's City Council is scheduled today to appoint five community members to a new Planning Commission. Oxnard abolished its original Planning Commission last year and replaced it with the special panel. The action drew fire from residents, who said the new arrangement reduced public input in the planning process. All five members of the Land Use Advisors panel plan to apply for seats on the new Planning Commission.
