The City Council voted Tuesday to begin a citywide search for possible sites for a future City Hall. The city can remain in its location, at 25201 Paseo de Alicia, Suite 150, until 2004 and then must move its offices, Assistant City Manager Don White said. The city will either buy or lease an existing facility or build a new City Hall, White said. About $3.4 million has been budgeted for the project.

The city Arts Commission has sent back to committee the issue of where to relocate the sculpture fountain in front of City Hall. The seven-member commission, which advises the City Council on arts-related matters, voted unanimously Monday to assign its Sculpture Committee the task of looking for alternative locations for the two bronze-plated cones that form "Synectic Falls."

As Laguna Beach struggles to keep the Festival of Arts from moving to San Clemente, the city is looking to rid itself of perhaps its second most public art installation: the fountain in front of City Hall. It's never been among the more popular pieces of artwork in the arty town, this 12-foot inverted cone that splashes water onto a tiny walled-in area. It's never even worked right.

The new City Council was figuratively and almost literally wet behind the ears early Wednesday when a water line broke at city hall, flooding offices and sending firefighters scrambling to clean up the mess.

After working out of temporary trailers for more than a year and a half, the renovation and expansion of Laguna Beach's City Hall is finally complete, and workers will open for business in their new quarters on Tuesday. City officials say the renovation was not a smooth operation since it was completed a bit behind schedule. The building will cost about $4 million--twice what had been expected.

For years the city of Laguna Beach has been the lone holdout in county efforts to build a 14-mile toll road stretching from near John Wayne Airport to San Juan Capistrano. By waging a single-handed battle against the San Joaquin Hills tollway, Laguna Beach has isolated itself from neighboring cities, arguing that the roadway would destory a scenic landscape and divert unwanted traffic to this southern Orange County beach community.

In what police say is an unusual arrangement that will allow Laguna Beach officers to stay closer to home while their station at City Hall is being remodeled, people arrested in Laguna Beach during the next year will be housed in Newport Beach Jail. The agreement, which was unanimously approved by the Newport Beach City Council, means Laguna police will not be pulled off their beats to drive prisoners to Orange County Jail in Santa Ana.

The latest cost overruns in the remodeling of Laguna Beach City Hall have bumped the estimated price of the project to more than $4 million, twice what was projected in January, 1989. On Tuesday, the City Council will be asked to allocate an additional $730,000 to pay for mushrooming renovation costs, partly by shifting funds that were set aside for other city projects.

An unfinished drama is being staged in the city of Laguna Beach these days. The plot may seem pretty boring--something about the fate of a sculpture proposed for the front of City Hall. But this is really a human comedy about clashing visions, lack of power in key positions and the folly of inexperience. Admission is free, and the show seems likely to continue for at least another month.

Art and life, often so well mixed in this city, clashed this week when two city officials opposed a plan for an arts plaza next to City Hall. The suggestion was made by city Arts Commission members for a half-block-long, 56-foot-wide area south of City Hall, which is undergoing renovation. Police Chief Neil Purcell and City Manager Kenneth C. Frank both said the proposal, which would eliminate parking planned for the area, was impractical.
