The Ventura County Board of Supervisors agreed Tuesday to allocate $4,950 to fund a study to see if Oak Park should become a city. At the request of the Oak Park Municipal Advisory Council and Supervisor Maria VanderKolk, the board decided to fund the study to determine whether incorporation of the community of about 10,400 people is feasible. The preliminary study, which will be completed in six weeks, would determine whether Oak Park could generate enough revenue to pay for municipal services.

The Triunfo County Sanitation District tabled action Monday on a cityhood request for Oak Park because it lacked information on whether the unincorporated area near Thousand Oaks could afford to operate independently. Instead, Ron Stark, director of the district's five-member board, will ask the Oak Park municipal advisory council today to begin a study of the community's fiscal resources. Stark is also a member of the Oak Park council.

The Community Foundation for Oak Park is seeking nominations for its Golden Acorn Award. The award, which honors outstanding community service, has not been given for six years because of the selection committee's strict criteria, said David Ross, foundation president. "Of the nominations we've received in recent years, none of them have met our criteria," Ross said. To qualify, nominees must have an active role in several community organizations that benefit Oak Park.

The Ventura County Board of Supervisors unanimously endorsed a compromise between Supervisor Maria VanderKolk and the Oak Park Municipal Advisory Council allowing the council to meet every other month. VanderKolk, who has been at odds with the council, had threatened to cut its monthly meetings to as few as one a year. "All of us need to be on the same team and work together to address Oak Park's concerns," said council member George Anterasian, who drafted the compromise with VanderKolk.

Ventura County Supervisor Frank Schillo is scheduled to swear in the two newest members of the Oak Park Municipal Advisory Council tonight. Douglas A. Hewitson and Chuck Monico then will join the rest of the council in discussing Schillo's proposal to bring Oak Park its own ZIP code. Postal officials have twice refused to give Oak Park its own number, saying the community of 15,000 is too small and the change would be too costly.

The Oak Park Municipal Advisory Council is studying whether to contract for its own patrol car from the Ventura County Sheriff's Department, a move that could cost households $20 to $100 per year. Oak Park now shares a car with nearby unincorporated areas and uses it about 60% of the time. Sheriff's officials said the cost of a car used solely in Oak Park would depend upon the level of use requested by the council.

Some Oak Park residents--who have long complained that they are isolated by a limited public transportation system--will soon be able to use a county-subsidized cab service to travel to any location in Thousand Oaks. Details of the Dial-A-Ride service are yet to be worked out with the Thousand Oaks Cab Co., but county supervisors Monday allocated $12,000 of federal transportation funds to subsidize the Oak Park-Thousand Oaks service.

The Oak Park Municipal Advisory Council has formed a committee to investigate ways to pay $30,000 for a study on cityhood. The study would evaluate whether the community of 13,000 people could financially support itself as a city. The committee will explore whether to ask the Ventura County Board of Supervisors to pay for the study or whether the costs should be paid by Oak Park residents.
