Without discussion, the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday unanimously agreed to dissolve the Los Angeles County Fire Commission after critics claimed that it had tried to exceed its authority by attempting to directly probe Fire Department policies. The action followed a recommendation by Chief Administrative Officer Richard Dixon in which he had said that the advisory panel, which met for the final time last week, had become "counterproductive" and was contributing to low Fire Department morale.

Rex Vilaubi.
