The City Council on Monday postponed a decision addressing parking issues related to the Cottonwood Christian Center. Neighbors of the church have long complained to city officials that church workers are creating too much noise preparing parking spots in the vicinity on Sunday mornings before 7 a.m. The city staff suggested installing parking signs in the area that allow only buses to park there from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays and from 6 to 10 p.m.

The Rossmoor/Los Alamitos Area Sewer District, or RLASD, recently sent out the annual newsletter to our customers in Los Alamitos, Rossmoor and College Park West. Also, our board spoke at a Los Alamitos City Council meeting to appeal for a zone change for our property next to the police station, near the Los Alamitos City Hall. We are constantly looking for better ways to operate the district. We believe that a zoning change from government to commercial for the district's property will allow the district to rent the offices to other tenants besides governments.

Ronald Bates and Charles E. Sylvia can already claim victory in the upcoming City Council race. Neither is opposed on the ballot for the only two seats open. "This is the first time I haven't had a challenger," said Sylvia, 63, who has run in six council races. "You hate to think people feel government is so corrupt they don't want to have anything to do with it." Bates, 50, said he would "like to think it's because both incumbents have done a reasonably good job.

Everyone agrees the problem stinks. Each year, around September to early December, a sickening odor descends on Linda Way, a quiet neighborhood of single-family houses close to the Armed Forces Reserve Center and a county flood control channel. It has been like the curse of autumn, residents say, as skunks visit the neighborhood almost nightly, leaving behind dug-up lawns, injured house pets and a nauseous odor that stays for days. "It's like I live with skunks.

Councilman Ron Bates, who was first elected in 1988, announced this week that he will run for a third term in the November election. Bates, 50, obtained nomination papers from the city clerk's office and intends to file by the Aug. 9 deadline. "One of my goals is to try to bring financial stability to local governments," Bates said Wednesday. "The state is taking so many millions of dollars away from cities. We need to come up with a plan on what cities can do to survive."

Fearing state legislation could wash away local control, the City Council is opposing Assembly Speaker Curt Pringle's plan to merge the Los Alamitos County Water District with 24 other Orange County agencies. The bill, AB2109, by Pringle (R-Garden Grove) would consolidate all county sewer and water districts into one large agency. The bill has passed the Assembly Appropriations Committee and awaits further hearings.

The city will look a bit more festive this holiday season. City Council members agreed Monday to spend $8,500 for holiday ornaments to replace aging decorations. The ornaments will include 20 deluxe lanterns with garlands and scrolls to hang from municipal poles. Decorations will go up the week of Nov. 14 and be removed after Jan. 3. The lanterns were chosen over holiday banners, which were cheaper at $3,000. Council members said the more expensive items would last longer and look nicer.

After months of battling Time Warner Communications over poor cable television reception, the City Council has approved a settlement agreement that requires the company to give customers rebates and set higher service standards. The agreement ends the city's six-month struggle to resolve problems with Time Warner that began in May after the company installed new transmission equipment and shuffled the order of the channels it carries.
