Under a new anti-graffiti plan adopted by the City Council, graffiti written on private property may now be removed without the property owner's authorization at the city's expense. "The city is going to obliterate all the graffiti," Mayor Sal Sapien said Wednesday. "Now we have the tools to go in and get rid of the graffiti even if the owner doesn't volunteer to let us paint" over it.

Three of the five City Council members said this week they favor legalizing fireworks and called for a public hearing on April 12 at which they may vote to allow the fireworks. The Orange County Fire Department, which provides fire protection in Stanton, opposed legalizing fireworks when the council considered the subject a year ago. Councilman William C. Estrada, who denounced fireworks a year ago, said at Tuesday's council meeting that he is ready to legalize them.

Property owners will go to the polls Aug. 6 to decide whether they want to continue paying a special property tax for fire protection and prevention. The City Council last week decided to place the tax-override issue on the ballot. If approved, houses will be assessed $24 a year, mobile homes $18, commercial and industrial properties $300 an acre or partial acre, and vacant land $75 an acre. The measure will be identical to one passed two years ago, Deputy City Clerk Cleo Hanson said.

The City Council appointed an ad hoc advisory committee to research a lengthy dispute between tenants and owners of the Katella Mobile Home Estates. "I think it is time we got involved," said Councilman Sal Sapien, explaining that the tenants and owners of the park have been unable to reach a resolution in the more than two years since they first came before the council. Most recently, residents of the city's largest mobile-home park protested a proposed rent increase.

The city has temporarily postponed plans to hire a youth outreach worker for $15,000 a year because of the county's financial crisis. And an outside play area for children, which was to be added to a section of the Boys and Girls Club, has also been put on hold. The same is true for the acoustical sound repairs that were to be made at the city's cultural arts center.

Two challengers elected to the City Council said they will try to usher in a reform attitude that consists of cleaning up the city and repealing a controversial utility tax that has raised the ire of hard-working residents.

Pappas Diaz.

It was like driving home the final nail in the coffin. The City Council earlier this week approved, 4-0, a resolution to work against any future card club proposals. Measure A, which sought to allow card clubs in the city, was rejected by voters by a 4-to-1 margin in a June 8 election. The anti-card club resolution, initiated by Mayor Don Martinez, says the council will "discourage any overtures which might be made in the future to permit card clubs." Councilman Joe V.
