The vote was 5 to 2, with the members of the council's renters' rights majority voting as a bloc in favor of new taxes to balance the budget.

Let other cities and counties worry about bankruptcy court. Santa Monica just passed a fat and sassy budget for 1995-96. It features more spending money, more cash reserves and more services than last year. There's even an extra $7.4 million to set aside for a new police station. How come? The city manager said it's prudent fiscal management--including cutting 100 city employees when times were tough a few years ago. Increasing tourism helps too.

Santa Monica's estimated budget shortfall for the current fiscal year has risen to nearly $5 million, with a proposed bicycle path network leading a list of capital improvement projects canceled, scaled back or postponed as the city scrambles to balance the budget. At a City Council meeting this week, City Manager John Jalili said that the revised midyear budget has been balanced without cutting the level of service to the public.

Despite protests that it was putting the cart before the horse, the Santa Monica City Council on Tuesday imposed two new taxes and raised a third as part of a move to close an expected $11.2-million revenue gap for the coming fiscal year. The council approved the taxes before seeing the new budget and before a series of public hearings that have been the traditional forum for residents to air their views on taxing and spending by the city.
