Brushing aside threats of a recall campaign, trustees of the Los Angeles Community College District narrowly voted Thursday to impose a new districtwide tax planned to hit more than 1 million properties in the county as early as November. Climaxing a raucous six-hour public hearing, the board of trustees voted 4 to 3 to begin charging each homeowner in the sprawling, 882-square-mile district an annual $12 assessment, and varying amounts for other properties.

RECALL DIES: Covina became the center of attention three years ago for the recall of the entire City Council over its approval of a 6% utility tax. But with little fanfare, an attempt to recall council members Thomas O'Leary, Linda Sarver and Tom Falls died Tuesday. They rode that anti-tax wave to the vacated seats, only to pass a higher 8.25% tax in 1994 rather than make promised cuts.
