The city's latest attempt at a law limiting sexually oriented businesses hasn't even reached the Planning Commission, but all sides already are predicting it will land Simi Valley--yet again--in court. "We have made an effort to put this regulation into a position that will be defensible," said City Atty. David Hirsch. "There's a good chance there will be another legal challenge."

The Simi Valley City Council has unanimously approved a revised law regulating the placement of news racks on public property, such as sidewalks. The new law, adopted Monday, is designed to protect the free-speech rights of publishers while continuing to make sure that news racks do not create public safety hazards for drivers and pedestrians, said Ronald C. Coons, Simi Valley public works director. The measure requires news rack owners to obtain an annual permit from the city.

Until its zoning laws can be rewritten, the Simi Valley City Council is expected Monday to extend a temporary ban on restaurants and bars that feature mud, pudding or whipped-cream wrestling. If approved by a four-fifths vote, the moratorium, in place since Sept. 4, would be extended for up to 10 1/2 months as Simi Valley retools its ordinances restricting salacious adult businesses.

Troubled by a partnership forged between police officers and immigration agents, Latino advocates today are expected to call on city leaders to abolish a policy that has made the U. S. Border Patrol a key player in Simi Valley's crackdown on gangs. The advocates say they are concerned that the policy, enacted by the Simi Valley City Council more than a year ago, recklessly blurs the line between local law enforcement duties and the federal responsibility to enforce immigration law.

As the clock ran out on a moratorium barring new adult businesses from locating in Simi Valley, City Council members Monday night extended the ban to allow more time to develop a law regulating the industry. The moratorium now extends for 10 months, until February, 1994, but it would be lifted once an ordinance is adopted and becomes effective, officials said. The vote was 4 to 0, with Councilwoman Sandi Webb absent. The council is set to consider draft regulations April 26.

The Simi Valley City Council tentatively approved a new ordinance Monday that restricts where adult entertainment businesses can operate in the city. City officials moved quickly to finish the ordinance after residents complained this year about a Las Vegas businessman's plan to open a local nightclub featuring nude dancing. Citing the community's opposition, the businessman recently abandoned his proposal.

The Simi Valley City Council has agreed to proceed with plans to draft its own air-quality guidelines for the construction of residences and businesses. These rules would tell developers what changes they must make or fees they must pay to offset the additional air pollution their projects would create. Other cities in the area have adopted the air-quality rules drafted in 1989 by the Ventura County Air Pollution Control District.

Taking a cue from Gov. Pete Wilson's declaration that California's seven-year drought is over, the Simi Valley City Council is preparing to repeal a 1991 city law that makes it illegal to waste water. At its meeting today, the council will consider replacing the water-waste law with a resolution that would merely encourage residents to conserve.
