To Thousand Oaks officials, it is nothing more than a line scribbled on a map, a line that never should have been drawn. But when the city tried to erase the line last year, it got slapped with a lawsuit that could ultimately cost Thousand Oaks $2 million. Officials in Simi Valley, who filed the lawsuit, said the line represents a long-planned connector road between the two cities.

Simi Valley motorists will be able to drive faster--legally--on six stretches of roadway under revised speed limits adopted by the City Council this week. The new speed limits are in keeping with a state law requiring roads to be surveyed every five years so that the limits reflect current driving habits, said Bill Golubics, city traffic engineer. Under the law, radar cannot be used if more than 15% of the drivers exceed the limit.

Simi Valley bus riders soon may be paying higher fares to ride fewer buses. Even though Simi Valley Transit is carrying more riders than ever in its 22-year history, fare revenue has dropped as much as 5% on some routes, while costs have jumped nearly 6%. The increased cost of providing service has prompted city staff members to recommend fare hikes and service cutbacks. "We've got to stop and ask ourselves how much we want to subsidize the buses," Councilwoman Judy Mikels said.
