Carmen Reyes washes at least two loads of laundry a day and hangs the clothes to dry on the chain-link fence and clothesline beside her Grace Avenue home. Her daily routine soon may be disrupted. The City Council tonight will consider adopting an ordinance that would prohibit people from hanging laundry in public view. "I hope the government will let me continue drying our clothes out here," Reyes said on a recent morning while placing damp bedsheets and children's clothes on her fence.

More than 200 elated residents gave the Planning Commission a standing ovation this week when it unanimously voted not to allow a bikini bar in the city. Steve Smith proposed operating a nonsmoking bar featuring bikini-clad dancers and servers for customers 18 and older. He said he filed an appeal Tuesday, hoping the City Council will overturn the Planning Commission's decision and allow him to open La Habra Polo Grounds in a local shopping center.

Council members said they feared a lawsuit if the city did not grant the permit renewal to the owners of The Casbah. But along with the renewal, the council required that the bar hire two uniformed security guards to patrol inside and outside the establishment. In a stern voice, Councilman William D.

The owner of O'Leary's Pub said those bands playing at his bar were only practicing. City officials said rehearsals or no, the bands were providing live entertainment--and O'Leary's doesn't have a permit for that. Ever since the council revoked a permit for live entertainment from O'Leary's Pub six months ago, officials said, owner Ronald Slutsky has continued to provide such entertainment on weekends.

The City Council has refused to allow the Bank of America to install bright red awnings over an automated teller machine. However, council members, who voted 3 to 2 last week against the bank's request, directed the Planning Commission to consider changing the design plan for La Habra Boulevard, where the bank branch is located. The plan currently prohibits any metal or vinyl awnings.

After a yearlong battle to reopen his restaurant and operate it with live entertainment, Jose Carillo gave up last week, withdrawing his request to be allowed to have mariachis perform there. Just last month, the City Council had denied Carillo an entertainment permit, which he sought so that he could have bands play dance music at the La Habra Boulevard restaurant, which has been closed for a year.

Businesses that want to offer nude dancing here will be prohibited from doing so for the next 10 months. City Council members last week unanimously imposed a 300-day moratorium on issuing permits for such entertainment. The ban extends a 45-day moratorium council members imposed last month after they were told some businesses planned to apply for permission to open a nude bar in the city. The council immediately moved to prevent that with the ban on new permits.

The owners of two parcels on Park Way, who had permission from planning commissioners to subdivide their properties into three lots, were stopped from doing so last week by the City Council. Council members overruled the commission's decision on a 4-1 vote after residents complained that the land division could create landslides, invasion of privacy and traffic problems. Councilman James Flora dissented. "These lots are not that easy to build on," Councilman William D.
