The City Council raised some community service fees this week, and extended a temporary ordinance that places strict controls on adult entertainment businesses that might seek to open in the city. The council voted unanimously to increase the fees to recover the costs of providing services to residents and others. None of the new fees are higher than the costs to the city, according to city officials. The fees take effect July 1 and are expected to generate $81,000 in revenues.

A Superior Court judge Monday rejected efforts by developer C.J. Segerstrom & Sons to block two referendums on the proposed Home Ranch office and commercial complex in Costa Mesa. Judge Tully Seymour ruled that petitions seeking the November votes were not sufficiently flawed to justify invalidation. Attorneys for the developer had argued that the petitions did not contain enough information to enable signers to make an informed decision.
