The City Council today will consider eliminating advertising on bus benches in areas where street beautification efforts are taking place. The move would cost the city $100,000 in revenue this fiscal year. However, Outdoor Systems Inc. of Los Angeles, the advertising company, will give the city $100,000 worth of ad-free benches. John Lower, traffic and transportation manager, said advertising on 60 to 150 bus benches could be eliminated. These benches would be city-owned, Lower said.

Repairs of a sewer line at Bolsa Chica State Beach soon will begin. Leakage problems with the sewer line were discovered last year by the Sanitation Districts of Orange County. Dozens of cracks in the line were detected. As a result, two-thirds of the beach was declared off-limits to surfers, swimmers and waders until the sewer line was temporarily fixed. Permanent repairs now will be done on the 2 1/2-mile underground line serving the beach restrooms.

In response to the April 29 article "Steep Increases in Sewer Rates Proposed": Not all sewer districts are increasing their rates. The Rossmoor/Los Alamitos Area Sewer District (formerly the Los Alamitos County Water District) is a regional sewer district that transports sewage through a network of pipelines to the treatment plants managed by the Sanitation Districts of Orange County. Local taxpayers see on their property tax bills a charge by the Sanitation Districts of Orange County, District 3. The Rossmoor/Los Alamitos Area Sewer District does not appear on the tax bill.

The county expects to save $100,000 on its ocean water monitoring program this year thanks to the efforts of some special districts and the Surfrider Foundation, officials said this week.
