Mayor Patricia Bates called for a change Thursday in a law that bans skateboarding in the street and criticized as "unwarranted" the arrests of two skateboarding teen-agers who were handcuffed and photographed by sheriff's deputies. "I just feel the action was certainly unwarranted, given the circumstances and age of the children," Bates said, referring to the two 15-year-olds who were arrested last week as they skateboarded along busy Niguel Road.

The ice cream man might be suspended from local schools if the city can pass an ordinance to prohibit vending before and after school hours. The idea for this ordinance began when some parents alerted the traffic commission and City Council about ice cream trucks around the schools, claiming they created a disturbance in traffic. Some kids dart across the street in front of cars or are late for the bus because they're getting ice cream, said Dave Rogers, traffic engineer.

After a year of complaints from irate residents, the City Council last week approved limits for the parking of recreational vehicles and large commercial vehicles along the city's streets. The guidelines allow recreational vehicle parking in front of the owner's property only three days in a seven-day period, and it bans overnight parking of the vehicles along any public street away from the owner's property.

Landscapers and residents opposing a proposal to ban leaf blowers say they will be out in force for tonight's City Council meeting. Officials are debating whether to prohibit the machines. If the ordinance passes, Laguna Niguel would follow the lead of Laguna Beach and become the second city in Orange County to ban the blowers outright. Gardeners, landscapers and a number of homeowners say they are against a prohibition because it would greatly increase maintenance costs.

Two teen-agers, skateboarding along busy Niguel Road last week, were arrested, handcuffed and photographed at the sheriff's substation for allegedly violating a city ban on riding in the street. The arrests infuriated the parents of one boy who said Wednesday that they have filed a complaint against the arresting officer for the "abusive" treatment of their son. "My son will now go through the rest of his life with a criminal record," said the boy's father.

Almost one month after two teen-agers were arrested and handcuffed by a sheriff's deputy for allegedly riding their skateboards in the street, the City Council tonight will consider reducing the penalty for skateboard offenses. Sheriff's Lt. Joe Davis, head of the city's police services, is recommending that the penalty be scaled down from a misdemeanor to a less serious infraction.

Despite a strong last-minute opposition drive, a City Council majority stuck to their guns Tuesday and voted 3-2 to restore a ban on the discharge of BB guns within the city. The final vote--the same as one cast earlier this month during a preliminary consideration of the ban--came after a two-hour public hearing that included more than 30 speakers, many of them members of the National Rifle Assn. and Gun Owners of California.

The City Council this week tentatively endorsed a proposed city ordinance setting a two-term limit for council members, despite warnings that the law might not stand up in court. City Atty. Terry E. Dixon said there is "serious question as to whether a general-law city, either by action of the City Council or by a vote of its registered voters, has the authority to adopt a valid and enforceable ordinance" limiting council terms.

The Planning Commission on Tuesday voted for the second time against urging the City Council to look into a view preservation ordinance. The decision echoed the commission's 1998 determination that a citywide ordinance is not necessary for maintaining views from residential properties. The matter was reopened after residents without active homeowners associations requested that the issue be reexamined.

Opposing the outdoor market, which would be in the Plaza de la Paz shopping center on La Paz Road, is the owner of a natural foods supermarket who says the commission's decision is unfair to his business.

A decision on installing 25 microwave antennas on the roof of a medical office building was delayed by the Planning Commission. Commissioners heard Tuesday from several residents and doctors occupying the Rancho Niguel Road office who expressed concern over the potential health effects of the AirTouch Cellular antennas. A decision was postponed to Feb. 13. In the meantime, city staff will come up with an independent analysis of whether microwave emissions can cause a health hazard.

Over the objections of angry neighbors, the City Council decided not to revoke a permit for a 35-foot-high antenna built by AirTouch Cellular. On a 4-1 vote late Tuesday, the council decided there wasn't a legal basis to rescind AirTouch Cellular's permit, although council members were skeptical over how the company dealt with neighborhood residents. In February, the company sent the Seabreeze Homeowners Assn.

As the City Council moved to head off the Eddie Rose controversy Tuesday night by restricting its own use of city stationery, Rose supporters struck back by handing a recall notice to Mayor Mark Goodman. The council unanimously passed a set of restrictions that all use of city stationery be pre-approved by City Manager Tim Casey or City Atty. Terry Dixon. The same is true for use of fax machines and copiers.
