Hosts of loud parties could be hit with fines of up to $500 if police are called to restore quiet under an ordinance proposed by a city councilman. The ordinance, which the council on Monday agreed to consider at its Oct. 7 meeting, would fine residents whose homes are visited by police more than once in a 30-day period. The proposal by Councilman Jay Humphrey is similar to a Newport Beach law that fines homeowners if police are called to quell a loud party.

The City Council this week rejected an ordinance proposed by Councilman Orville Amburgey that would have required council candidates to file their campaign literature with the city clerk. The emergency ordinance--so named because it would have taken effect immediately if approved by four of the five council members--received only the support of its sponsor. Councilman Ed Glasgow was absent.

The City Council has decided against hearing new information on the Island Trader bar and restaurant, reinforcing an earlier decision to revoke its operating permit. Now, owner Gregory Howell has 30 days to decide whether to take the battle against the city to court, as at least two other bar owners on Newport Boulevard have done after the city revoked permits citing residents' complaints about noise and unruly bar patrons late at night.

Despite protests from a handful of residents, owners of the Shark Club received unanimous City Council approval to allow dancing at the club's Baker Street pool hall. Some nearby residents claim that allowing a dance floor at the club will bring noise and parking problems to their neighborhood. "If the Shark Club wants to become a nightclub, let them go to an area that allows it," said Karen Watkins, who recently bought a home on Baker Street. "We don't want a nightclub in our neighborhood."

The Costa Mesa City Council on Wednesday approved a new general plan amendment that would allow C.J. Segerstrom & Sons to proceed with a scaled-down plan for its controversial Home Ranch development even if an upcoming citywide vote rejects a larger version of the project. In an unusual session called to consider various Home Ranch issues, the council also voted to put a referendum on the larger version of the 94-acre project on the Nov. 8 general election ballot.

Supporters of City Councilman Ed Glasgow, who was censured by the council on Monday, blame the vote on politics that they say also brought down former Councilman Orville Amburgey. Glasgow was reprimanded after the district attorney's office investigated whether he and retired Costa Mesa police Lt. John A. Regan had acted illegally in monitoring computer messages exchanged by City Manager Allan L. Roeder and Police Chief David L. Snowden.
