A former San Clemente planning commissioner agreed Friday to pay $7,000 to settle a conflict-of-interest lawsuit filed by the district attorney's office that accused him of voting on matters in which he stood to make a financial gain. The suit, which was filed just before the settlement was reached, alleged that former commissioner Harold Joseph voted in favor of development projects involving Centex Corp., a company in which he held 1,000 shares of stock worth more than $30,000.

The City Council has reappointed George Key, Steve Apodaca and Bob Burleson to serve additional two-year terms on the five-member city Planning Commission. The appointments came during a special meeting last week in which one appointee took the unusual step of turning down a spot, Mayor Joe Anderson said. Tom Dunn, a longtime member of the city's golf course committee, had been appointed by a council majority during the meeting to take one of the three positions.

Faced with a bleak financial future, San Clemente city officials tonight will begin considering long-term budget plans, from raising taxes to disbanding the city police force. The discussion will focus on a five-year financial forecast for the city of 43,000 people, which has been hit hard in recent years by economic recession and dwindling revenue from the state. The special meeting, the first of several on the issue scheduled for this month, will start at 7 p.m. at the City Council Chambers.

Angered by a City Council decision last week to disband the Police Department and contract for services with the Sheriff's Department, a group of residents and business owners met Thursday night and vowed to recall the four council members who voted for the change. "The City Council voted that way in spite of broad-based support for the department or putting the issue on the ballot," said Rob Topolski, a resident and former police dispatcher who organized the meeting.

A political feud on the City Council that almost ended up in court has apparently been resolved. Initially, Councilman Thomas Lorch threatened to sue Councilman Scott Diehl because Diehl had accused him of instigating a recall campaign to remove four council members from office. The charge that the recall is "a shabby political trick" by Lorch "and a handful of his cronies" was contained in Diehl's written response to the recall.

Hoping to ensure that San Clemente's investments are handled wisely, the City Council voted Wednesday to put a measure on the March ballot calling for the city treasurer to be appointed, rather than elected. "It's time to go back and ask the voters if they want a registered voter handling millions and millions of dollars--or do they want somebody who is qualified and sophisticated in investment knowledge handling our funds?" Councilman Scott Diehl said. "Times have changed."
