Officials with the Orange County district attorney's office declined on Friday to investigate municipal loans made to San Juan Capistrano City Manager Stephen B. Julian, saying that they have no evidence suggesting any crime was committed. The district attorney's decision was announced in a one-page letter to San Juan Capistrano Mayor Kenneth E. Friess. Two weeks earlier, Friess had written to Dist. Atty. Michael R. Capizzi requesting the review on behalf of the City Council.

The City Council on Tuesday agreed to give former City Manager Stephen B. Julian $166,575 in severance pay and to release him from about $26,000 in loans he owes the city. Julian, 51, was terminated on Sept. 28 after controversy over a lawsuit brought by a residents' group that alleged some of Julian's benefits constituted abuse of public funds. The suit was dismissed, but it had undermined Julian's authority and effectiveness, city officials said.

Citing a need for new leadership, the City Council on Monday terminated longtime City Manager Stephen B. Julian, a move that officials say could cost the city up to $200,000 in severance and other payments. City leaders said a recent lawsuit, which alleged that some benefits in Julian's contract with the city constituted an abuse of public funds, had undermined Julian's authority and effectiveness. The suit was dismissed, but the damage was done, said City Councilman Kenneth B. Friess.

The city manager of this centuries-old mission town has an extraordinary financial relationship with the government he administers. Records show that City Manager Stephen B. Julian over the last nine years has tapped the city's treasury much like a personal bank--incurring five loan debts totaling $398,235--based on terms not typically available to the general public: * He got a $250,000 city loan to buy a house in 1981, but did not repay the money within the time promised.

As a resident and taxpayer of quiet, little San Juan Capistrano, it is hard to believe the mayor and the City Council of San Juan Capistrano were so naive and charitable and lovable as to arrange a sweetheart loan deal with the city manager, Stephen B. Julian. Since I feel the city of San Juan Capistrano has been swindled, now is the time to find out what other deals of "charity" have been arranged by our lovable and generous city fathers. This may be only the tip of the iceberg.
