State officials on Tuesday shut down all eight buildings in the Cal State Long Beach music complex where a 120-ton roof collapsed on a concert hall Monday and launched a survey of 19 other state campuses to determine how many similarly built structures exist. A team of independent experts searched Tuesday in a mountain of debris inside the Gerald R. Daniel Recital Hall for an explanation to the collapse. They said it could be several weeks before the cause is known.

The Burbank City Council on Tuesday voted to negotiate with a Pasadena-based construction company to get the firm to lower its bid for the project to open the pedestrian Golden Mall to traffic. The firm, Shirley Brothers Inc., bid $6.1 million, 37% more than the city's estimate of $4.5 million for the project. Although city officials had considered re-advertising for the project, council members said it might be more expedient to negotiate with the Pasadena firm.

Construction to reopen the Golden Mall in Burbank to traffic, scheduled to begin next month, could be delayed for several months because bids for the project came in higher than city officials had hoped. John Mundweil, Burbank's assistant public works director, said the cost of reopening the mall to vehicles and providing parking had been estimated at $4.5 million. But there were only two bids, and the low one, by Shirley Brothers Inc. of Pasadena, asked $6.1 million for the job.

Burbank city officials, not satisfied with bids for the job of opening the Golden Mall to traffic, said Tuesday that they will redesign the project to reduce construction costs. Burbank City Council voted to reject the one bid that the city was seriously considering for the project. Shirley Brothers Inc. of Pasadena had asked $6.1 million to put roads through the mall and provide parking, but the city had estimated that the work should cost about $4.5 million.

If you squint and use a little imagination, you can almost see a $12.7-million state-of-the-art police station at Tapo Canyon Road and Alamo Street. There's the gleaming dispatch room. Around the corner are the squad and computer rooms. Farther away sit the holding cells. By the end of next year, no daydreaming should be needed. As long as El Nino cooperates, Simi Valley's 120 police officers could move into the new facility in late July or early August.

City Councilwoman Joy Picus and her staff are looking to put a 56-year-old firehouse's ceiling over someone's head or its floor under someone's feet. Both are free for the taking. There's only one catch. They have to be taken quickly. Reseda Engine Co. 73, one of the oldest fire stations in the San Fernando Valley, is scheduled to be demolished by the end of the year to make room for a larger, modern, more earthquake-resistant facility.
