The city teamed up in March with Great Western and sued family-run 5 Star Rubbish, to which the school district had granted a contract to haul waste from the district's 50 schools. Judge Thomas N.

The Rose Parade is eight months away, but the city will take the first step today in preparation of its third entry in the New Year's Day extravaganza. C. E. Bent and Son Inc., a Pasadena-based float-building firm, designed Santa Ana's entry in the 1985 and 1986 parades. The City Council will consider approval today of an $80,000 contract with the company to design and produce the 1987 float. Both of the previous Bent floats garnered trophies for the city.

After a fierce battle last year to secure a new $79-million federal courthouse, Santa Ana City Council members are scheduled Tuesday to approve a $15,000 contract with lobbyist and former Democratic Rep. Jerry Patterson for past and future work on the project. The city's coordinator on the project, Jill Arthur, said the contract includes payment to Patterson for lobbying work he did last year on Santa Ana's behalf to win the courthouse for the city.

Despite two months of study and debate, the City Council is still wrangling over the city's $218-million budget because contracts with the police and fire unions have not been settled. Santa Ana is the largest city in the county without a final 1990-91 budget at hand. The council missed its own deadline last month for passing the budget. The city councils of Irvine and Westminster have not passed final budgets either. "We're being held hostage by the contracts," said Mayor Daniel H.

Santa Ana Unified School District officials and union negotiators for 1,750 teachers go into another round of contract mediation today amid guarded optimism by the school district that a settlement will be reached this week. Teacher union officials, however, were less optimistic. "I haven't seen anything yet that the district's put forth that is very positive," said Gail King-Burney, president of the union, the Santa Ana Educators Assn.

Before an overflow crowd of more than 350 people, the City Council voted 5 to 2 Monday to award a controversial trash-hauling contract worth an estimated $100 million to the city's longtime hauler, Great Western Reclamation. Although the city this winter put the trash contract out to bid for the first time in 30 years, Great Western ultimately offered the city the best terms, according to a city staff report. "We put this contract out to bid and my hat's off to the process," Councilman Miguel A.

Federal procurement centers with the biggest bucks to spend on outside goods and services are the least likely to buy anything from the nation's small businesses. That's the finding of a just-released study by the Small Business Administration's Office of Advocacy, which shows that small firms aren't getting their mandated share of the federal tax dollars spent in the private sector.

In Santa Ana, the city has agreed to place locks on outdoor recycling bins for a dozen neighbors in the Wilshire Square district. The devices, as Times staff writer Tony Barboza reported, were designed to keep bears out of trash cans in Alaska, but there aren't any bears in Santa Ana. Nor are the locks intended to thwart native critters such as raccoons, opossums, ravens or coyotes.

An expansion of police helicopter service may be coming to the county, and it may cost less than present service.
