Gov. Pete Wilson on Monday saluted Ventura County's politicians as quick-acting, hard-working leaders--and then tried to slip them the distasteful task of imposing a new sales tax to make up for drastic cuts in state aid. California's estimated $8-billion budget gap this year compels the state to go further than ever before in commandeering funds from cities, counties and special districts, Wilson told 400 business and political leaders at the county's annual economic summit.

A measure that would raise local sales tax half a cent to pay for road construction has the support of more than enough cities in Ventura County to place it on the November ballot. Simi Valley, Ventura, Oxnard and Fillmore joined four other Ventura County cities this week in support of a ballot measure that would help the county take advantage of new gasoline taxes. The measure needed support from a majority of the county's 10 cities to qualify for the ballot.

A Ventura County environmental group and a newly formed community organization are working to defeat a ballot measure that would raise the local sales tax half a cent to help pay for road construction projects. The proposed county tax increase, known as Measure A, was approved last month by the Board of Supervisors following statewide approval of Proposition 111, which also raises the gasoline tax throughout the state for road improvements.

An invasion of the Medfly in Ventura County is inevitable, whether or not the state's controversial aerial spraying of malathion eradicates the financially ruinous pest in Los Angeles and Orange counties, Ventura County Agricultural Commissioner Earl McPhail said this week. And just as soon as a single fertile Medfly is found in the county, McPhail said, state agriculture officials are prepared to start spraying malathion to protect crops.

Gov. Gray Davis' administration is expected to confirm today that state sales taxes will rise next year by a quarter of a cent, a development eagerly awaited by Republicans who want to make taxes an issue in next year's elections. A 1991 law enacted by Davis' Republican predecessor provided that in good times--when the state budget surplus tops 4% of the general fund for two years straight--the state sales tax automatically drops by one-fourth of 1% for one year.

A majority of city officials across Ventura County on Wednesday reported disappointing sales tax revenues, indicating that the recession has yet to loosen its grip on the county. An informal survey of city governments, which rely on sales taxes as their principal source of revenue, shows that cities are proceeding cautiously and bracing for another round of budget cuts. "This is not the time to run out and do wild and crazy things," said Nancy Jioras, Ojai's accounting supervisor.
