A former secretary who says she was sexually harassed by a supervisor when they worked for one of Southern California's largest construction companies has been awarded $275,000 by a Superior Court jury in Long Beach. Brenda Perez, 29, now a resident of Santa Maria, said that Craig Wiberg, 45, a building manager with the Tutor-Saliba Corp., exposed himself to her, asked her to kiss him and invited her to join him for a tryst at a local hotel.

The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday against reviewing a contract with a firm that plans to move the southernmost runway at Los Angeles International Airport. That means the project can go forward. The plan is to shift the runway 55 feet to the south -- or closer to El Segundo -- to create a taxiway between the pair of runways on the south side of LAX. The purpose is to reduce close calls involving planes landing, taking off and taxiing.

As cost increases go for the Los Angeles subway project, it was not a staggering item. But when transit officials decided last year to pay a contractor $15,000 extra to clean up a work site, they acted against the consistent recommendations of their predecessors. The money was sought by Tutor-Saliba Corp., whose representatives said that the firm had incurred extra costs when officials ordered the cleanup of tunnel and station areas.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ruled that construction giant Tutor-Saliba Corp. intentionally withheld and destroyed documents in a landmark case with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority over alleged false claims for payment on the Metro Rail subway project. Judge Joseph Kalin told jurors Tuesday that the only issue left for them to decide is the amount of damages the MTA should receive because of Tutor-Saliba's conduct.

After expressing concerns about Tutor-Saliba Corp.'s mixed record on several high-profile construction projects, the city's Airport Commission on Monday awarded a $253-million contract to the firm to rebuild the southern runway complex at Los Angeles International Airport. The Sylmar-based contractor will start moving the airport's southernmost runway 55 feet closer to El Segundo early next year to create space between the parallel runways for a center taxiway.

The agency in charge of building a $2.4-billion rail expressway to serve the county's ports will approve a contract today turning over the project's most critical phase to one of the same construction companies associated with the troubled Los Angeles subway system. But officials of the Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority say they have implemented checks and balances to prevent the sort of crushing cost overruns and delays that have dogged the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Concerned about reports of construction defects in the new Los Angeles subway, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority unanimously voted Wednesday to delay the awarding of a $45-million contract until the structural soundness of the tunnels can be verified. The MTA board decided to postpone the award to the joint venture of Tutor-Saliba-Perini for construction of a subway station until the 13-member board has received a report from an independent panel of experts.

Colleagues of Los Angeles County Supervisor Deane Dana said Wednesday that state law should be broadened to explicitly bar Dana's aides--and those of other officeholders--from voting on contract awards to campaign contributors. The calls for reform followed a Times report that Dana's aides voted 29 times during 1991-1992 to award $45.8 million in contract increases to the supervisor's top political donor. Most of the votes were cast by Dana's chief of staff, Donald R.

Ronald N. Tutor, the hard-driving, outspoken boss of the Metro Rail's largest contractor, called the fire that raged through the $35-million tunnel that his crews were building a "tremendous disaster." But he quickly added that the tunnel fire is "one isolated tragedy" in upward of $2 billion in public works contracts completed by his company. Isolated though the fire may be, the Sylmar-based Tutor-Saliba Corp. and its boss have made their share of waves in a notoriously tough business.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Deane Dana's representatives voted to approve $45.8 million in contract increases for a Metro Rail builder who was Dana's biggest campaign contributor during the past two years, public records show. While substituting for Dana on the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission, his top aides voted 29 times to approve contract hikes for Tutor-Saliba Corp. of Sylmar in 1991 and 1992. During the same period, Tutor-Saliba Corp.
