When Simi Valley issued $15 million in tax-exempt municipal bonds for low- and middle-income mortgages in 1989, nobody could have guessed the mess that would follow. With proceeds of its bond sales, the city bought guaranteed investment contracts, called GICs, thought to be safe investments. The GICs were placed with Executive Life, a Los Angeles insurance company that collapsed in 1991 after overextending itself in the junk bond market.

The swimming and water polo programs at Royal and Simi high schools soon might be without a pool.

The city of Simi Valley spent more than $62,000 to put its police on 2,009 hours of overtime duty at the end of the second trial of four Los Angeles police officers accused of beating motorist Rodney G. King, officials said Thursday. Fearing potential violence at the end of the U.S. District Court case, the Simi police doubled patrol car staffing from one officer per car to two during jury deliberations, in a massive mobilization dubbed "Operation Gatekeeper," said Police Chief Lindsey P.

Simi Valley's Meals on Wheels program, which delivers hot lunches to 45 homebound senior citizens and handicapped residents, will probably have to pay 25 cents more for each meal it purchases beginning in September, a city official said Tuesday. Ventura County, which provides the meals to the Simi Valley group, recently announced the probable price increase, said Kathryn O. Andersen, the city's senior services coordinator.

As the Simi Valley City Council gets ready to begin its annual budget-cutting process, the first item on the chopping block is a familiar one--a proposal to cut funding for a visitor's information program run by the Chamber of Commerce at city expense. Every year at budget time, city staff presents the council with a book of proposed cuts. And every year, the visitor information program is at or near the top of the list of suggested trims.

Facing tough economic times and growing competition from other cities trying to increase their tax bases, Simi Valley officials have offered a $175,000 cash bonus to entice a San Fernando Valley medical supply firm to move to the city. On Tuesday, however, city officials said they were still uncertain whether the bonus, the city's first such offer, will be enough to persuade Guardian Products, a medical supplies manufacturer, to move its corporate offices, plant and 470 jobs to Simi Valley.

Saying the program is probably not worth the cost, the Simi Valley City Council rejected a plan Monday to continue offering $100 rebates to residents who replace their high-volume flush toilets with models that use much less water. "I don't happen to think this is money well-spent," Councilwoman Judy Mikels said. She proposed the funds be used instead for programs that result in greater water conservation.

Joanne Meister guides 25 squealing third-graders past a slab of the Berlin Wall, a collection of Ronald Reagan's movie posters and a video of John W. Hinckley Jr.'s assassination attempt. Finally, the group arrives at a replica of the Oval Office as it looked under President Reagan. "The Jelly Bellies are right there on that side table," says Meister, a volunteer docent at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, pointing to the former actor's favorite White House snack.
