A new poll commissioned by business interests in the state has found that 43% of Southern Californians believe business and industry, more than individual consumers, should pay for cleaning up the air. Moreover, nearly 60% of those polled said they would support air pollution controls even if it meant banning certain businesses and industries from the basin that comprises Los Angeles, Riverside, Orange and San Bernardino counties.

The Metropolitan Water District Board of Directors, trying to firm up a sagging budget, on Tuesday adopted a new parcel tax and other charges aimed at raising $50 million a year. The new fees and taxes, which will affect about 17 million consumers throughout Southern California, follow adoption in March of a 21% rate hike that will go into effect July 1 and raise about $80 million annually. The rate hike will cost average consumers about $1.25 a month.

One by one, Southern California counties have reluctantly stepped up to pay their share of the region's soaring transportation bill. All but one, that is. After several failed attempts, Los Angeles County voters approved a half-cent sales tax in 1980 and will get a chance to tack on another half-cent in November. In 1987, San Diego passed a tax on its first try.

Confirming reports that the company plans to move some jobs out of California, the chief executive of Rohr Industries said recently that the aerospace manufacturer would not locate in California if it were starting up today. Robert Goldsmith, who heads the Chula Vista-based concern, thus joined a growing chorus of California aerospace employers who have expressed displeasure with the high cost of doing business in Southern California.

The trucks rumble down Townsend Street each day like clockwork, carrying crates of tomatoes, bananas and cabbage for those who live in the gray stucco apartment buildings that crowd the dead-end Santa Ana street. The food trucks are a welcome sight to the residents, many of them immigrants drawn by the low rents and the relative quiet of the street. There are few cars here, and, often, a trip to the supermarket means climbing on a bus. Many make the trip only twice a month, usually after payday.
