Voters in this seaside community will decide in June whether City Council members will get their first pay raise in 25 years. The council voted unanimously earlier this week to ask voters to raise their monthly salaries from $125 to as much as $300, despite the fears of at least one council member that voters may question the ethics of the move. Voters will be asked to amend the city's 1964 charter so that council salaries conform with those set by the State of California Government Code.

Mola Development Corp. has filed an $11-million lawsuit against the city of Seal Beach and three City Council members, claiming that the city illegally discriminated against the company by rescinding approval for its proposed $200-million Hellman Ranch development. For the past 4 1/2 years, Mola has waged a battle to build a $200-million housing development on a 149-acre site. The city approved the plan and then, after the seating of two new council members, rescinded the approval.

City Manager Robert Nelson, whose resignation was announced Tuesday, said he does not have another job lined up but decided to quit so he could devote his energy to finding one. "At this point in time, I'll be exploring whatever options I have. I think I have some useful skills as an executive that could be used in public agencies as well as private agencies," Nelson said. In discussing his resignation, Nelson referred to a Zen parable used in a commercial for a drug rehabilitation center.

Mayor Paul Yost, City Council members and staff celebrated the State of the City luncheon at the Naval Base on Wednesday. Although he expressed concerns over a loss of city revenue from utility tax exemptions, the mayor said the city's finances were sound.

It's a municipal ruckus that only Southern Californians could understand. The mayor of Seal Beach is a windsurfer. One of the councilmen is a surfer. They can pass resolutions on street improvements and order traffic surveys and decide how much of the city's money to set aside for various environmental studies.

Shortly after council members chose Marilyn Bruce Hastings on Monday night to serve as the city's new mayor, they gathered behind closed doors to discuss last week's unexpected resignation of City Manager Jerry L. Bankston. "It was more than a surprise; it was more like a shock," said Hastings, who replaces Councilman George Brown for a one-year term as mayor. "We had hoped he would be with us for a long time."
