Hoping to discourage merchants from boosting prices during disasters, the Simi Valley City Council has approved an anti-gouging law that prohibits raising prices more than 25% in emergencies. Although no reports of price gouging were verified in Simi Valley after the Jan. 17 earthquake, council members on Monday agreed to pass the ordinance to discourage the practice. Under the new law, merchants would not be allowed to increase prices more than 25% when a local emergency has been declared.

The Simi Valley City Council voted 3 to 2 Monday night to set up a fund-raising foundation and proceed with design work to transform a boarded-up 69-year-old church into a cultural arts center. Councilwomen Sandi Webb and Barbara Williamson voted no, due to concerns about the cost of renovating the former Simi Valley Community Methodist Episcopal Church, 3050 Los Angeles Ave., and running a 350-seat community theater inside.
