A one-year street-sweeping contract has been awarded to Irvine-based Sunset Property Services, which uses sweepers powered by compressed natural gas. The sweepers produce 95% less carbon monoxide and particulate emissions than sweepers powered by diesel fuel, company President John Howhannesian said. The company's sweepers also use a regenerative air system designed to recirculate air inside the vehicle, rather than expel dust and particulates into the environment, Howhannesian said.

The City Council will tackle the slippery issue of whether to terminate its contract with the Nadadores swim and dive team and seek a more equitable agreement at a special meeting set for Aug. 30. Council members discussed the matter Monday night but opted to hold off on making a decision until several issues could be discussed further. The staff report says that the city pays more than $2 million for maintenance of the team's two facilities.

In their first show of support for plans to build a baseball stadium at Saddleback Community College, trustees of the college district have voted to approve in concept a conditional lease with Mission Viejo. The agreement would allow the city to begin the first phase of a $6-million stadium project--installation of a new field and lights--to let the Long Beach Riptide play next season in South County.

A $6.17-million contract to build a new city library was awarded by the City Council on Monday. "This is the culmination of nine long years of hard work and frustration for the people of Mission Viejo," said Mayor Sherri M. Butterfield, former chairwoman of the Mission Viejo Library Foundation. "It marks the end of all the dreaming and planning. Now we will watch the dreams become a physical reality." The construction contract was awarded to Douglas E. Barnhardt Inc.

The City Council this week dumped its longtime residential waste hauler and awarded the contract to BFI Industries. The cost of household trash pickup will rise to $13.29 a month, an increase of 9 cents, but will be less than the $14.97 that the service would have cost if the city had extended its contract with Waste Management of Orange County. Western Waste was chosen to handle commercial-waste hauling, while BFI was awarded the business franchise.

The city will share its animal shelter with Laguna Niguel if the City Council approves a one-year deal today. Under the contract, which was approved by Laguna Niguel last week, most costs of running the shelter would be split by the two cities based on population. As the larger city, Mission Viejo would pay 62% and Laguna Niguel about 38% of the expected $540,000 annual operating costs, officials said. Laguna Niguel has agreed to expand the shelter by building 16 additional dog kennels.

About two-thirds of the city's trash controversy is close to being cleaned up. Waste Management, the largest of five waste haulers who have refused to stop picking up trash in Mission Viejo after losing out on the commercial garbage franchise in July, gave the City Council an offer Monday night that has council members nodding their heads.

City officials are seeking a new 10-year agreement with the Nadadores swim team that could keep the Olympic medal-winning organization in Mission Viejo. With three months to go before the Nadadores' lease for a city-owned aquatics complex on Marguerite Parkway expires, the City Council by a 4-1 vote Monday told its staff to start talks with the swim club and bring back a 10-year deal. "The timing is right" to start negotiations, said Mayor Susan Withrow. "In three months their lease is up."

City officials could be excused for feeling, well, dumped on. In the past seven weeks, the city has been hit with trash collection controversies ranging from a jilted refuse company employee giving the City Council a Nazi salute, to an angry citizen dumping his trash on the desk of a City Hall secretary. "Trash is a dirty business," says Mayor Joseph D. Lowe. "There's so much at stake, things get a little intense."
