The Newswatch item of Aug. 11 may have left an inaccurate impression of my position regarding certain issues. Until recently, art organizations receiving grants of public tax dollars from the city of Costa Mesa were not required to account for how the funds were spent. This lack of financial accountability was distressing. However, under revised procedures, funding is now limited to items specified in the grant proposal, use of funds must be documented, and priority is given to "outreach" programs.

City officials have refused to officially proclaim Wednesday as A Day Without Art as part of a worldwide observance of the toll AIDS has taken, and arts officials across the county are upset. Mayor Sandra L. Genis, a staunch opponent of all municipal arts funding, said Monday that economics were behind the refusal. Proclamations have cost the city $3,000 to $5,000 annually in materials and staff expenses, she said, and "I personally don't think they are a good use of taxpayers' money."

Based on news articles about C.J. Segerstrom and Sons' determination to carry on with One South Coast Place in Costa Mesa despite widespread citizen opposition and the issuance of an injunction to stop the project by Orange County Superior Court, it seems that Segerstrom and city officials have a faulty recollection of the past as well as a poor understanding of the court's ruling and of state law. Officials of both the Segerstrom company and...

City voters will decide in November whether to impose term limits on City Council members. The council voted Tuesday to ask residents whether members should be limited to two consecutive four-year terms. (They may serve any number of nonconsecutive terms.) Councilman Gary Monahan, who has been the major proponent of the idea, said: "I think some people get entrenched in these positions. It's important to have fresh blood." But Councilwoman Sandra L.

The City Council this week agreed to consider tightening a conflict-of-interest measure that was overwhelmingly approved by voters last November. The move would make it a conflict for city officials to vote on issues relating to contributors who donate $250 or more to their individual campaigns. The measure approved by voters set a $500 minimum. City staff will draft an ordinance to be brought before the council at its Aug. 5 meeting. Councilwoman Sandra L.

In a bid to provide better services and create more orderly city boundaries, Costa Mesa Councilwoman Sandra L. Genis has asked the city staff to research what unincorporated lots within the city could be annexed. Genis' request, which came during Tuesday night's City Council meeting, came after the council annexed a small, undeveloped county property along 21st Street south of Santa Ana Avenue. Single family homes will be constructed on the lot, according to City Manager Allan Roeder.
