As Mayor-elect Sally Anne Sheridan and two new councilmen prepare to be sworn in today, it remains unclear whether Sheridan's vacant council seat will be filled immediately or whether the city will be left with a four-member council until a special election in November. At issue is a recently completed petition drive calling for a special election to determine who will complete the two years remaining in Sheridan's council term.

The biggest disappointment with the way Irvine's new mayor, Sally Anne Sheridan, has been running her city may result from the fact that, as one of America's celebrated planned communities, Irvine has the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of older cities. But if Irvine's futuristic city hall is a symbol of a fresh start for local government, the Sheridan regime seems determined to get bogged down in the same old politics.

Last-minute campaigning for one open City Council seat received a boost this week when two community groups held a forum for the five candidates. Traffic congestion, whether to have a mayor elected by voters instead of the council, and possible conflicts of interest were some of the subjects addressed. It was sponsored by the Irvine chapter of the League of Women Voters and the North Irvine Village Assn.

If the City Council decides to sell the 1.4-mile-long former railroad line behind homes in the Northwood community, the adjoining residents will have to pay fair market value. The council voted unanimously this week to hire an appraiser and to notify property owners next month on how much it would cost to buy the piece of the 60-foot-wide strip by their homes. The notice will ask residents to write back to the city if they are interested in buying a portion and fencing it into their back yards.

Top officials from the Irvine Co. and members of the slow-growth Irvine Tomorrow group met this week to discuss their disagreements over the developer's plan to build 3,800 Westpark II homes east of Tustin Marine Corps Helicopter Air Station. Although the groups reached no agreement, both sides agreed to meet again April 14. The discussions appear to be "a step forward" in resolving differences, said City Councilman Bill Vardoulis, who added, "This is encouraging."

A City Council candidate has filed a complaint with the state, alleging that Mayor Larry Agran might have violated campaign finance laws by setting up his reelection headquarters in two rooms at La Quinta Motor Inn. Barry J. Hammond said Tuesday that he has requested an investigation by the Fair Political Practices Commission, a watchdog agency that monitors the ethical conduct of government officials and candidates for elected office across the state.

When Orange County Dist. Atty. Cecil Hicks hired a political consulting firm to handle his reelection, he was unaware that the firm was a potential witness in an investigation being handled by his office, Hicks said Friday. In January, Hicks' deputies had opened an investigation into the 1984 race of Irvine City Councilwoman Sally Anne Miller, whose campaign was run by Nelson-Padberg Communications of Costa Mesa. Hicks said he hired the firm in March or early April.

One week after city voters cleared the way for 3,850 new homes in central Irvine, the City Council on Tuesday approved the construction of another 2,880 homes just north of the current city limits. The council voted 3 to 1 to approve a zone change allowing construction of the Irvine Co.'s Northwood 5 community. The council, which had earlier approved the project, had postponed the final vote until after the Nov. 5 election.

The City Council will meet in an emergency session Saturday to attempt to rectify glitches in its election laws that could leave the council two members short for three weeks and the city without a mayor for one week. City election laws passed in 1987 and 1988 have created a gap between the time outgoing council members are to leave office at the end of this month and when their successors are to be sworn in next month, a situation that Mayor-elect Sally Anne Sheridan described as "horrible."

Residents for and against the Irvine Co.'s proposed 3,850-home Westpark II development will argue its merits Thursday evening during a debate on the three Nov. 5 ballot measures. A referendum for Westpark II--which will appear as Measure B on the ballot--was scheduled after the residents group Irvine Tomorrow collected enough signatures last January to overturn the council's earlier approval of the housing project.
