After operating out of tents and trailers in the parking lot of its quake-hammered headquarters for more than two weeks, the city of Santa Clarita on Monday began moving its offices to a temporary site in Saugus. Beginning today, a building owned by Cytec Engineered Materials Inc., 21444 Golden Triangle Road, will serve as the city's administrative center while repairs are made to City Hall, which suffered about $4 million in damages in the Jan. 17 temblor.

Fifteen weeks after the Northridge earthquake battered City Hall, the Valencia building reopened Monday with an abundance of stacked boxes and scattered furniture the only evidence of its ordeal. Repairs cost about $4.5 million. City workers are still unpacking much of their equipment and supplies, but all regular services are again available to the public. Mayor George Pederson officially reopened the building with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and announced new City Hall office hours.

Quake-battered City Hall reopens next month--better and stronger than ever, according to city engineers. City departments are scheduled to reopen on April 25, but some of the Valencia Boulevard building's other tenants, including a bank, could move back into their offices a week earlier. Officials said engineers had inspected each joint with ultrasound and that diagonal braces had been added to the structure for additional support.

It is quite amusing to hear both Republican and Democratic party officials accusing Ross Perot of trying to "buy" the presidency. Many Perot supporters consider this preferable to the current system, in which moneyed special interests, lobbies and PACs "buy" the access and influence of elected and appointed officials--through campaign contributions, gifts and the prospect of lucrative employment after their government service is over.

Santa Clarita has narrowed its search for an architect to design its $35-million City Hall and civic center complex. A panel of architects and city officials reviewed 106 conceptual drawings before choosing five finalists Sunday for the project, which will be built on 238 now-vacant acres off Soledad Canyon Road behind the Saugus Speedway. The panel will choose the final design in September after the finalists refine their drawings and resubmit them.

The city of Santa Clarita disclosed Tuesday that it will buy the Valencia National Bank building, where City Hall is located. In an unexpected announcement, the city said it will pay $11.5 million for the three-story building, which it purchased from Valencia Plaza, a limited partnership based in Woodland Hills, Councilwoman Jan Heidt said. The City Council did not discuss the acquisition publicly because state law allows such discussions to be held in closed session, Heidt said.

City buildings will get touch-ups Saturday from volunteers using county-provided supplies as part of an areawide effort to clean up graffiti. Although Santa Clarita hasn't been vandalized as much as other cities in Los Angeles County, there has been a marked increase in graffiti reports during 1993. In June, the city's graffiti hot line receive 207 calls compared with 60 the same month last year. Even more important to organizers of the cleanup is the presence of people willing to participate.

City Hall will remain closed for 60 to 90 days to allow work crews to shore up columns in the earthquake-battered building. Officials estimate that it will cost $3 million to restore the three-story structure, triple the initial projection. The decision Tuesday to close City Hall came as a surprise to city employees and building tenants, who had expected to begin working out of the Valencia Boulevard site this week.

A weekly outdoor market proposed in Santa Clarita has put a new twist on the tale of a small farmer clashing with a big developer over land. In this case, the developer is local while the farmers are from out of town and the property involved is a 25,000-square-foot expanse of asphalt. The Ventura County Certified Farmers' Market Assn. would like to use Santa Clarita's City Hall parking lot Sunday mornings to sell fruits and vegetables. But the Newhall Land & Farming Co.

Morale at Santa Clarita City Hall is at an all-time high, and not just because of the holidays. Beginning early next year, the city's 160 full-time employees will get every other Friday or Monday off in exchange for working nine nine-hour days in each two-week period, officials said Monday. The program, designed to help fight smog by reducing the number of commuting trips, sent holiday spirits soaring even higher Monday at City Hall. "You mean it's true?
