A dispute with the state over funding of services at local beaches grew hotter Tuesday as the Board of Supervisors voted to stop providing lifeguards and maintenance crews at some of the most popular local beaches beginning May 2. An impasse over beach funding has been brewing for years, with the cash-strapped county insisting that the state and beach cities should increase their share of maintenance costs.

After more than two years of efforts, Malibu residents who want their coastal community to become a city got their wish Thursday to put the matter before voters, but it came with a heavy string attached. Complying with a judge's order, Los Angeles County supervisors set a June 5 election date but voted to delay the actual incorporation until March 28, 1991, if residents vote in favor of cityhood. Lawyers for cityhood backers vowed to fight the condition put on their election.

Los Angeles County officials, forced by a judge's order to allow a Malibu cityhood election to proceed in June, may try to delay the actual incorporation for up to a year if residents of the seaside community vote to form a city. A resolution prepared for supervisors to vote on today contains a condition that would allow county officials to impose the delay. Ordinarily, once voters approve, incorporation occurs on the date results are certified, usually four to six weeks after an election.

Los Angeles County supervisors Tuesday voted to support the Boy Scouts in fighting a lawsuit brought by a former scout who was excluded from the organization because he is gay. By a 3-2 vote, the board approved a resolution sponsored by Supervisor Mike Antonovich expressing support for the Scouts' "freedom to choose their own leaders." The action was attacked by a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union, which is representing the scout, as an endorsement of discrimination.
