Hoping to help clean the waters at local beaches, the Laguna Beach City Council this week approved a water pollution control plan for the city. The plan calls for the city to meet with representatives from the county and other agencies to discuss pollution-testing protocol for streams and beaches and to step up a campaign to educate residents about how to avoid polluting local waters, especially Laguna Canyon Creek.

It is my understanding that the Laguna Beach City Council will be considering changing utility companies at the May 3 meeting. Once again, the South Laguna community is an item on the city's agenda. When annexed, we were told by city officials that nothing would change in our community. Well, here we are again. It surprises me and makes me wonder why the city of Laguna Beach is in such a hurry to make a decision with such far-reaching impact. Just as the second-unit issue was not an item that could be quickly decided, so is the matter of changing utility companies.

Development and the proposed airport at El Toro are among the major issues in this year's Laguna Beach City Council race, in which two challengers are joining three incumbents on the ballot. One of the most controversial development projects has been Treasure Island, a resort hotel, bluff-top park and enclave of homes planned for the site of a defunct mobile-home park on scenic beach property. The council has approved a preliminary plan for the site.

The Laguna Beach City Council voted Tuesday to give $75,000 to the Laguna Art Museum, allotting the largest city subsidy in the 79-year-old institution's history. "This is a significant milestone in the city's history," said Mayor Paul Freeman, who voted for the funding in a four-to-one decision. Councilman Wayne L. Peterson cast the "no" in a vote that determined the 1997-98 city budget. The city had given the museum about $2,000 annually for roughly a decade.

City Councils in La Palma, Laguna Beach and Fullerton agreed Tuesday night to accept settlements with the bankrupt Orange County investment pool. The county last month offered cities and other investors three options for settlement of their invested money. Option A allows the investors about 76% in immediate cash settlement, about 4% in negotiable notes, 9% in "secured claims" and 10% in vague IOUs. Those taking option A agree not to sue the county for additional money.

Already devastated by fire, Laguna Beach now has lost the race against the first rainstorm. The city had made good progress in preparing to stop mudslides on slopes denuded of vegetation, but nature wouldn't wait. Thursday's slides showed the need to step up efforts to minimize damage before the winter storm season descends in full. It has been just over two weeks since blazes roared through Laguna's hills.

The Laguna Beach City Council was right to revert to having only amateur competition at its annual volleyball tournament, now that most men's and women's professional teams are sponsored by liquor companies. By doing so, the council demonstrated it meant business when it said there will be no drinking on city beaches or at events that are sponsored by alcoholic beverage firms.
