It was a pleasure to see the article about Jim Hanks, "the other brother" (Film Clips, Nov. 27). I can imagine how tough it must be for an actor in this town to find a professional niche of his own. How much more so when you have a tendency to look and sound (and run) like a well-known big star. However, I should like to note a minor error in the mention of his spouse, Karen. Though wife of Jim, she has retained her maiden name--Praxel--as her professional name and can be seen in Pragmatic Productions' "Macbeth" through Dec. 17 at the Gascon Center Theatre in West Los Angeles.

Port Hueneme will consider adding two police officers and three clerical workers to its payroll if the City Council approves a nearly 5% increase in the 1995-96 budget. City officials will hold a budget study session Tuesday morning to discuss the $335,000 increase. They said the money will come from past savings and a utility tax imposed last year.

More than four months into its fiscal year, the Port Hueneme City Council on Wednesday adopted a $6.4-million spending plan that includes $900,000 in previously approved budget cuts. As part of the city's continuing belt-tightening, the budget eliminates two customer service positions that are no longer occupied. The city has dropped about a dozen staff positions from its payroll since last year.

Port Hueneme's budget shortfall has grown to nearly $500,000 as a result of the state budget passed earlier this month, the city's finance director said. About $80,000 in property taxes that normally would go to the city will be reallocated to schools under the state's budget, Finance Director Jim Hanks told the City Council last week. The reduction comes on top of a $400,000 shortfall previously projected for the city's 1992-93 budget, he said.

The Port Hueneme City Council on Wednesday approved a program budget for the city's performing arts hall. The director of the Dorill B. Wright Cultural Center, which attracts performers from around the world, asked for $86,000 to finance the 1992-93 season, an amount that would be partly repaid by ticket sales and donations. Port Hueneme Finance Director Jim Hanks said the city is falling short of its nearly $7-million budget this year by about $167,000.

Port Hueneme plans no severe cuts in services or layoffs of city workers, despite an anticipated budget deficit of about $1.3 million over the next two years, municipal officials said. The City Council today is scheduled to get its first peek at the city's $18-million, two-year budget at a City Hall study session. "We're not in a disaster mode like we were a few years ago," Finance Director Jim Hanks said. "[But] we're going to be faced with making cuts."

Following Oxnard's lead, Port Hueneme has become the latest Ventura County city to consider whether to draft a charter--a move municipal officials say would provide more local fiscal control. The City Council will decide tonight whether to sit as a charter commission to study the idea. The issue could be put before voters as soon as November, said Tom Figg, acting city manager. "The recent past has shown us we can't trust the state and that's really what has brought this to focus," he said.
