Councilman David M. Cheverton will be replaced by a successor of his colleagues' choice. The council decided to make an appointment rather than hold a special election in an effort to save money, officials said. Holding a special election would have cost an estimated $20,000. Making an appointment will cost nothing. Cheverton recently announced his resignation, saying increased job responsibilities at an Irvine marketing firm left him without sufficient time for his elected duties.

It's a friendly place to come to." In the last couple of years, crime has dropped, especially in Rush's Grace-Pacific neighborhood.
