The City Council recently approved spending $16,370 to repair a 4-inch fire water main and a 2-inch domestic water line at Richard T. Steed Memorial Park. The main and water line broke underneath the park's restaurant building in March, causing damage to a nearby patio and the surrounding area from substantial mudflows. The repairs will be paid for out of council contingency funds, leaving the fund balance at $91,330. Information: (949) 361-8200.

Officials on Saturday unveiled plans to transform an empty San Clemente hilltop into a $30-million cultural landmark that would serve as the new home for the Festival of Arts and also include a glass-paneled amphitheater, museum, arts institute and seasonal gardens. The sprawling complex would be built on 41 acres near the Talega development and serve as one of Orange County's top art institutions, according to backers.

The city is putting the finishing touches on about a mile of the Avenida Pico Bikeway, which will stretch two miles from the Foothill Transportation Corridor to Camino Vista Pacifica when it is finished. The surface and landscaping for the bikeway, part of which is being built within the Talega development, was completed last week, but further adjustments may be required because of work being done on adjacent roads.

In response to residents' concerns about increases in the fees for upkeep of parks, beaches and street lights, the City Council will form an advisory committee to study the need for such a levy. Under a new rate schedule approved by the council last month, the residential landscaping and lighting assessment rose nearly $7 a year to $93. It is the second time in two years that the assessment has been increased, prompting residents to oppose the hike.

The city will begin its new fiscal year with a $67.4-million budget, including $17.7 million for the city's largest capital improvement project yet. City staffers said that after five years of downsizing, they finally have begun to address neglected projects. "We have gone through a significant period of cutting and reorganization and streamlining to maintain cost control," said City Manager Michael W. Parness, adding that for the first time in four years city employees will get a raise, of 3%.

As the City Council prepares for a final public hearing Wednesday on a fee proposal to pay for street repairs, a group of opponents is collecting signatures to try to move the issue before voters. Under the much-debated plan, property owners would be assessed $1.5 million a year, between $18 and $90 a year per household depending on whether the property is on a public or private street. The city would pay about $2.4 million a year into the assessment district.

Despite objections from nearly two dozen employees of the city's public-works maintenance department, a divided City Council has voted to proceed with a plan to eliminate the department and turn over street repairs and traffic-light maintenance to a private contractor. When they drew up the 1997-98 budget in February, council members said the plan could save the city $430,000. But the contractor with whom the city is negotiating now puts the savings at only $370,000.

For as long as anyone can remember, a dusty path has meandered along this city's beachfront, following only a rusty railroad track on which at least one person is run over each year. Now the city wants to cover the dust with asphalt and put up a fence, a proposal that has sparked a major debate. On one side are beach-goers and city officials who believe that the trail will make for better recreational opportunities and that the fence will save lives.

Three years ago, the idea of putting up artificial rock to help reinforce a storm-ravaged bluff was so innovative that it got a wary reception. Rock facades along Pacific Coast Highway? Disneyland West, claimed many critics who took aim at government's willingness to spend $3 million to bolster the bluff where a massive, 600-foot-wide slide damaged five homes in 1993.
