Saying they had no inkling that Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder's son had been employed by the private operator of a county-owned marina, two supervisors said Tuesday that they are not yet willing to approve a proposed renewal of the firm's lease. Supervisors Roger R. Stanton and Don R. Roth said their concerns center on the controversy caused by the disclosure of Lee E. Wieder's role and Supervisor Wieder's actions affecting Sunset Marina Park at Huntington Harbour.

A controversial proposal to extend a company's control of a marina at Huntington Harbour appeared dead Monday after the firm's president told the Orange County Board of Supervisors that he was dropping his request. "I'm disappointed, because I wanted to vote against it," Supervisor Roger R. Stanton said. "If it doesn't look good, it probably ain't good. I just see no redeeming value in this at all."

An evenly split Harbors, Beaches and Parks Commission declined Wednesday night to endorse a proposal that would extend a private firm's long-term control of one of Orange County's few publicly owned marinas. The 3-3 vote by the commission places in limbo a proposal to grant a new, 30-year lease to the firm operating Sunset Marina Park at Huntington Harbour. Critics of the proposed lease renewal were buoyed by the commission's vote. "It's a victory," said Edward N.

The long-term future of a county-owned marina at Huntington Harbour should be decided by competitive bidding and without further involvement of Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder, boating and recreational-vehicle activists said Monday. The activists--who have not always agreed with Wieder over use of Sunset Marina Park--expressed alarm at learning that her son represented the marina operator as a lobbyist in lease-renewal negotiations with Orange County officials.

Over the past year, Orange County Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder has frequently interceded with county officials to assist a Huntington Harbour marina operator who had given money to her campaigns and employed her son as a lobbyist. Partly as a result, the county is close to renewing a long-term lease for Sunset Marina Park--eight years before the current lease expires and with no competitive bidding.

Orange County supervisors have postponed a decision that could determine the long-term control and use of the county-owned Sunset Marina at Huntington Harbour. Over the past month, officials have said that a proposal to renew the county's lease with a private operator of the marina would be considered on Tuesday by the supervisors. The lease became controversial in June when the Los Angeles Times disclosed that the son of Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder had been involved in the negotiations.

The Orange County Harbors, Beaches and Parks Commission gave mixed signals Wednesday night about a proposed renewal of the controversial lease of the Sunset Marina Park, a 276-slip boat haven at Huntington Harbour. On the one hand, the commission voted 4 to 2 not to endorse a county staff recommendation to renew the lease for another 30 years. But the commission also voted unanimously to direct the staff to seek additional concessions from the operator of the marina, Goldrich & Kest Inc.

Part-time commissioners such as Ed Conway, Larry Luera and Sally White of the Harbors, Beaches and Parks Commission are not often in the limelight in Orange County government and politics. But they deserve the public's attention and appreciation when they make an independent call in the best interest of the taxpayer, even if it means going against some powerful political sentiment.
