City leaders, who don't want Los Alamitos' businesses to bear any more hardships during lean times, plan to put a measure on the November ballot asking voters to reduce licensing fees. Council members this week unanimously agreed to offer a ballot measure that would eliminate the 5% annual increase in business licensing fees that voters put into place in 1988. The council instead proposes to increase the fees according to the annual cost-of-living index.

The City Council has given preliminary approval to join with two nearby cities in creating a new emergency dispatch center to hook up with a new countywide system. By creating a jointly run dispatch center with Los Alamitos and Cypress, each city will save about $60,000, Seal Beach City Manager Keith Till said. The center will enable the cities to join the new 800-megahertz countywide emergency dispatch system.

Though expressing reluctance to do so, the City Council has approved Option A of the Orange County bankruptcy settlement. Officials said they will continue to evaluate that decision, however, until the judge overseeing the county's bankruptcy petition makes a final ruling. Under Option A, Los Alamitos would receive about 76% of the $2 million it had in the county's failed investment pool. Part of the remainder would be returned in recovery notes and repayment claims.
