The Orange County Board of Supervisors this week is expected to schedule two South County elections that could drain the county's budget by millions of dollars each year. But while the county budget ax is expected to swing more wildly in the coming months as revenue shortfalls worsen, the supervisors are legally and politically impotent to stop the democracy movement--the incorporation of two new cities--that officials say will create a larger financial burden on the county.

Warning that $40 million in state budget cuts already have Orange County "on a collision course" with financial disaster, Supervisor Don R. Roth made a dramatic plea Wednesday to block formation of two new South County cities, saying it would bleed another $10 million from county coffers. Despite Roth's warnings of county government layoffs and further cutbacks in public health care in the next fiscal year, his fellow members of the Local Agency Formation Commission rejected his appeal.

The fast-growing areas of south Orange County took another step toward urbanization and self-rule Wednesday when the Local Agency Formation Commission cleared the way for El Toro and Laguna Hills to become the county's newest cities. Meeting in Santa Ana, the LAFCO board voted 4 to 0 with one abstention to let the voters decide if El Toro and Laguna Hills should become the latest South County areas to create their own city councils to deal with local affairs.
