The City Council today will consider spending $11,000 to form a nonprofit group that would raise funds to renovate Heritage Park Aquatics Complex. Results of a recent engineering study show mechanical parts and piping are likely to fail and that the 18-year-old aquatics complex needs to be renovated, said Deanna Manning, the city's community services director. The city, however, does not have money to fund such a project.

Still hedging on joining the fledgling Orange County Council of Governments, a divided City Council on Tuesday delayed a decision on the issue until Aug. 6. With the council split 2 to 2, Janet Godfrey, the swing vote, said she needed answers to several questions before voting. The council continued the matter, and the city staff will research Godfrey's questions. So far, 25 of 31 cities have agreed to join the OCCOG, which would also include county agencies such as the Transportation Authority.
