The Irvine Ranch Water District, upon the urging of the Newport Beach City Council, has postponed a vote on an environmental impact report involving a proposal to empty 5 million gallons of reclaimed waste water daily into the Upper Bay. The board agreed to wait until Monday to review the report, giving Newport Beach officials more time to study it and the proposal.

In an effort to ensure consistent trash-collection service and fees, the City Council on Monday will discuss consolidating its commercial waste operations. The city now uses 13 independent haulers to collect commercial refuse. A three-month study by the General Services Department indicates that the city could save money and increase efficiency by using just one hauler. However, awarding a single franchise could sink some small operations, said Dolores Otting, owner of 5 Start Rubbish.

The City Council today is expected to authorize the spending of nearly $3.4 million for emergency radio equipment that ultimately will link city police, marine officers and firefighters with the county and nearby cities. The existing city-county network was installed in 1973 and designed to handle 2,000 police, fire department and marine emergency radios. It was expected to serve 1.5 million people.

A plan to forestall any widening of Dover Drive has won support from the City Council. "We have everything to gain and nothing to lose," Councilwoman Jean H. Watt said. Councilwoman Norma Glover sought the change to such insulate neighborhoods as Santa Ana Heights, Cliff Haven and the planned Castaways community from increased traffic. Dover runs from Coast Highway northward to the Costa Mesa line, where it becomes 19th Street.

The City Council will examine the merits of a plan to make new fingernail salons provide nearly three times as much parking as existing ones, even though the Planning Commission voted the ordinance down. Parking problems at a nail salon in Corona del Mar prompted then-City Councilman Phil Sansone to request the change last year.

The City Council has given grudging approval to the phase-out of an agreement with Orange County that has provided $110,000 a year to support city lifeguard services. "We get at least 25,000 extra visitors every summer and now we're being asked to pay the (full) cost of lifeguards as well as cleaning (the beach) up," Councilman Thomas C. Edwards said. "This is one of the things where we should press the county as best as possible."

The City Council has agreed to spend $44,000 on a design study for a long-range plan to build a new, $9.1-million interchange connecting Newport Boulevard with Pacific Coast Highway. The new interchange would include construction of a new bridge over the highway, which Webb said would be built in three stages over an 18-month construction schedule. The city is to get $5 million for the project from the Orange County Transportation Authority next year.

The city's Bicycle Trails and Harbor Quality committees narrowly survived City Council efforts this week to consolidate several citizen committees, although others will be changed. The Bicycle Trails Committee, which works on trail development and safety issues, was to be disbanded, in part because of expected vacancies, City Manager Kevin J. Murphy said. But City Councilman John C. Cox Jr. objected to disbanding the group and said other residents could be appointed to fill the vacancies.
