Apartment building owners and associations have contributed more than $24,000 to defeat the city's public-safety services fee that will come before voters next month. Councilman David John Shawver tried Tuesday night to convince members of the Apartment Assn. of Orange County that they have made a mistake. "It's hard for me to sit back and see money that's coming from the outside, not even from within my community, that's going to take away my police and fire services," Shawver said.

Three Orange County cities are considering canceling municipal elections in November because no one is challenging the current members sitting on the city councils. On Tuesday, the city councils of Stanton, Laguna Hills and San Juan Capistrano will meet to decide whether to cancel the elections and appoint the incumbents to new terms that begin in December, or go ahead with Nov. 3 elections. In each city, three of five council members are seeking another term.

Attracting and keeping businesses in town is a major concern, so much so that two former members of the City Council cite that as the reason they are trying for a come-back. Alicita Lewis-Younker, who left the council in 1978, said she hopes to return so she can help struggling Stanton firms. "Businesses are not attracted to the city, and even the ones that come don't stay," she said.

The City Council has decided against holding a special election on whether to allow fireworks in the city. Stanton passed an ordinance two years ago allowing the sale and use of Fourth of July fireworks. At the time, the council discussed the possibility of holding an election to let residents decide whether to continue the practice. But that idea was stricken at Tuesday's council meeting. "In two years, we have not had many problems," said Mayor Harry Dotson.

In a state that occasionally runs wild with public referendums, voters are regularly confronted at the polls with such dry, complicated issues as million-dollar bond measures, assessment districts and utility rates. It is not the stuff to stir the passions of the electorate. But in two small cities in northwest Orange County, voters will go the polls Tuesday to decide an emotional issue that has divided city councils, sparked heated protests and drawn wary looks from neighboring cities.

Voters turned down all four card clubs proposed in Southland cities, dampening a recent run for casino money in cash-needy communities. Residents of Pico Rivera and West Hollywood refused to allow clubs in their cities in Tuesday's election, brushing off promoters' promises of new jobs and millions of dollars in tax revenue. Similar ballot measures to introduce card clubs in Orange County also failed by wide margins in Cypress and Stanton.

Ballot arguments for and against Measure A, which asks voters if they want card clubs in the city, were filed Friday at City Hall. Mayor Pro Tem Joe V. Harris and businessman Tony Lueken proclaimed their support for the measure, saying it would raise as much as $3 million annually for the city. "Help provide Stanton with public safety and more jobs," Harris and Lueken said in their ballot argument. Councilman Harry Dotson wrote the argument against the measure.

Sobered by this week's trouncing of gambling proposals in two Orange County cities, card-club promoters in Cypress and Stanton said Wednesday that they will abandon any consideration of bringing the volatile issue back before local voters. "We were astonished by the turnout. It must be that the town was really determined that they didn't want this in their community," acknowledged Edward Allred, one of three Los Alamitos Race Course owners who pushed a plan to build a club at the track.
