Designating nearly all of the city a redevelopment area, the City Council cleared the way for the collection of additional property tax revenue. Unlike other redevelopment areas in the state, Stanton's redevelopment project does not aim to attract businesses.

The county-run library will soon be open an extra day each week, thanks to an infusion of $5,000 in city funds. The City Council unanimously agreed this week to spend city reserve funds to keep the library open four days a week for the rest of the fiscal year, which ends June 30. "The importance to our community of the municipal library well supports the expenditure of that money," Councilman David John Shawver said.

"The current and future general fund revenue picture is not a bright one," Matz wrote, because of continuing declines in property, sales and utility taxes and development fees.

At a cost of more than half a million dollars, Stanton agreed this week to join a new countywide communications system for police, firefighters and other emergency workers. The City Council unanimously approved a joint agreement with the county to build the 800-megahertz communication system that is expected to be fully operational by 1999. The new system will upgrade the current 400-megahertz system, which has been described by law enforcement officials as dangerously obsolete.

Hoping to reduce the city's crime rate, the City Council this week approved spending $75,130 to pay for increased sheriff's patrols. The money, which came from a state grant, will be used to pay for 1,800 hours of overtime this year for deputies who patrol Stanton. The grant will also cover the increased cost of bookings that are likely to occur from more arrests. "The crime rate in the city is down, but why not make it go down more since the money has been made available to us?"

In this city where civic leaders are proud of declining crime rates, new neighborhood beautification projects and business development programs, Councilman Al Ethans has come up with an idea to spruce up the city's image: Change its name. "There's a kind of stigma that goes along with the name 'Stanton,' " Ethans said. "I'm sure some of the old-timers here will come down and threaten my life, but a change might help us out, from a standpoint of our past reputation."
