Following in the footsteps of several other Orange County cities, the City Council is considering passing a law that would make it illegal for people to camp overnight on city property. Mayor Larry A. Herman brought the idea of an anti-camping law before the council after meeting with mayors and council members from other west Orange County cities who discussed the subject at a monthly issues meeting.

The City Council agreed to allow residents to park recreational vehicles in their driveways during the two weeks before and after the new year. A resident had requested the parking law exemption because he was worried about how potential computer problems associated with the shift to 2000 could affect his home, and he wanted the option of staying in his recreational vehicle if problems should occur. Some scientists have predicted widespread computer problems as a result of the year change.

The city has adopted a law that will allow police officers to arrest potential graffiti vandals even before they pop the top of an aerosol spray can. The law makes it illegal for adults to possess graffiti implements while in any city public park or recreational facility or while loitering near an underpass, bridge abutment, storm drain or any other out-of-the-way place commonly hit with graffiti.

In a remote desert oasis in Egypt, archeologists have literally stumbled upon a treasure trove of as many as 10,000 mummies that promises to shine a brilliant spotlight on the period 2,000 years ago when Roman legionaries ruled the land of the pharaohs. Preliminary surveys suggest that the site contains the largest concentration of mummies in the world.

An appeals court ruled Friday that La Palma may not limit the number of terms City Council members serve--a decision that invalidates laws in three Orange County cities and could nullify ballot measures in two more. The ruling clears the way for La Palma Councilman Richard Polis, who brought the original lawsuit, to run for a third term on the Nov. 3 ballot, despite a 10-year-old law enacted by voters limiting council members to two terms.

Complaints about noise from leaf blowers prompted the City Council this week to consider regulating the machines, which Councilman Paul F. Walker described as "one of my pet peeves." The council directed the city staff to draft an ordinance that would restrict use of the devices. Many lawn-care companies have such machines, and the city's Public Works Department also uses them.

It was more than 14 years ago that voters first approved term limits for elected city officials, but it is only now that City Council members must leave after two consecutive four-year terms. The council recently passed an implementing resolution for Measure O, which city voters overwhelmingly approved Nov. 5. Measure O authorizes City Council term limits.

Fourteen years ago, La Palma voters passed a measure that limited City Council members to two consecutive four-year terms. This fall, city voters will be asked again to endorse that same proposal. A court ruled four years ago that La Palma did not have power under state law to set term limits. A new state statute, effective Jan. 1, changed that, but such limits must be ratified by a city's voters. The City Council, at its meeting Tuesday night, agreed to put the question on the Nov. 5 ballot.

After deciding against increases that would have affected businesses, the City Council has approved revised fees for various city services, with many of the charges going up. The council had delayed action on the issue last month after several members objected to a proposal to raise the cost of business licenses. City staffers were instructed to revise the plan.

Leaf blowers can be a nuisance, City Council members agreed this week as they gave preliminary approval to an ordinance that would set noise levels and operating hours for the machines. If the proposal is approved on second reading April 15, it would become law 30 days later. Councilwoman Eva Miner Bradford, who led the move to regulate leaf blowers, said many residents have complained about them.

Some City Council members, declaring leaf-blower machines to be potential nuisances, are calling for a debate at next week's meeting on whether to regulate the devices. The proposal would limit operating hours of leaf blowers from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays and holidays. The issue came up in October, when Councilwoman Eva Miner Bradford said residents had complained to her about leaf-blower noise.

Some of the city's parks and walking trails have gone to the dogs, Councilwoman Eva Miner Bradford says. Many residents have complained to her about dogs not being on leashes, especially on the Edison right-of-way walking trail, Bradford said at Tuesday night's City Council session. "Elderly people are terrified about these huge dogs running loose," she said. "I think we should have some enforcement." City Manager Daniel E.

After three months of temporary measures, the City Council has given final approval to a law governing warehouses. The new ordinance requires warehouses and other distribution facilities in the city to obtain a special permit before they begin operating. The council thus can hear the specifics proposed for each building's use before it opens. The council on June 4 adopted an urgency ordinance that put a moratorium on any warehouses, pending further study.

The City Council is having second thoughts about its January vote to ban roller or in-line skating in Central Park. At its meeting Tuesday, the council directed city staff to prepare an amendment to city ordinances that would once again allow skating in the park. The proposal is scheduled to come before the council May 2. If the council adopts that ordinance change, the ban on skaters would be repealed. Skateboards, however, would continue to be outlawed from the park.

The city has no adult businesses--and wants none, Mayor Duane Schuster said. When the City Council meets Tuesday, it will revise an emergency measure it passed this month to control adult businesses that may seek to locate in the city, the mayor said. On Dec. 5, the City Council enacted an ordinance to control public nudity and adult-oriented businesses. The council passed that law as an urgent measure that took effect immediately. The action came after City Manager Daniel E.
