A grand opening celebration has been scheduled Saturday at the La Colonia Youth Boxing Gym, officials said. Three boxers, including Fernando Vargas, the U.S. amateur lightweight champion, will be on hand to reopen the neighborhood sanctum that had fallen into disrepair during the early 1990s. Last year, the Oxnard City Council agreed to spend $250,000 to enlarge and renovate the abandoned firehouse at 520 E. 1st St.

It appears that an elected person has no place in David Mora's dynasty. Even though the retreat was tabled, he is going on with it anyway and is still excluding Mabi Plisky (city clerk). Now, Mr. Mora says it is because she is a spouse of a councilman. This is just more of Mora's narrow-minded thinking. It is time for the Oxnard City Council to do its job and fire David Mora. His narrow-minded ways have no place in Oxnard city government. He must be replaced at once! DENNIS SMEDLEY Oxnard

Oxnard City Council members Tuesday refused to support a request by Councilman Michael Plisky to demand the immediate closure of the Bailard Landfill. Plisky asked his colleagues to reaffirm the city's opposition to the continued operation of the landfill. Bailard's permit to operate expires Dec. 7. The Ventura Regional Sanitation District, which runs the landfill, is seeking to keep it open until May, 1997. But Plisky's motion died for lack of a second.

The Oxnard City Council voted Tuesday to ask other cities to join in building a recycling and waste-transfer station in Oxnard, despite a consultant's warnings about doing business with the firm proposing to operate the recycling center. "Please join with us to build a regional (materials recovery facility) to serve the western waste shed," wrote Oxnard Councilmen Michael Plisky and Andres Herrera in a letter to government leaders.

The Oxnard City Council will hold a public hearing Thursday to discuss whether the city's General Plan should be amended so a developer can convert the former St. John's Hospital into a high-density, low-cost apartment complex. Mercy Charities Housing California, a nonprofit developer sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace, is hoping to develop two separate sites in Oxnard.
The Oxnard City Council will attend a shopping mall convention in Las Vegas next week to seek out retailers for the future Oxnard Town Center--a large, mostly undeveloped tract at the Ventura Freeway and Santa Clara River. All five council members will join City Manager Vernon G. Hazen, city Economic Development Director Linda Guillis and City Atty. Gary Gillig on Wednesday and Thursday at the International Council of Shopping Centers Spring 1991 conference in Las Vegas.
