Ventura officials on Tuesday urged City Council members to sharpen their budget axes because they will have to make at least $3.5 million in cuts this year--possibly more if the state Legislature makes further reductions in the city's tax revenues. "We've got an ugly scene in front of us," Mayor Gregory L. Carson told his colleagues during a three-hour budget session. City managers warned council members they will have to make hard decisions to eliminate $3.

A Ventura City Council subcommittee recommended Wednesday that trash collection rates be increased to subsidize future recycling services for businesses across the city. If adopted by the council later this month, the new rates would raise commercial trash collection rates by 8.8%, residential bills by 3.4% and industrial rates by 1.7%. The new rates will take effect July 1 for commercial and industry customers and Sept. 1 for residential customers.

Ventura officials said Friday they intend to issue layoff notices to as many as 20 city employees next week and may have to lay off as many as 50 additional workers later this year. City officials also are putting together a buyout proposal that would encourage some employees to retire early. It would be the first time since 1979, when Proposition 13 took effect, that the city has had to consider laying off workers, Finance Director Terry Adelman said.

The Ventura City Council voted unanimously on Monday to give up to $15,000 to help prevent the shutdown of a tiny library in one of the city's poorest neighborhoods. The council's donation, which will match funds raised by Ventura residents, is the largest so far in the campaign to save the Ventura Avenue Library. The facility may be closed by Ventura County supervisors next month because county officials say they must cut back on services and the Avenue branch is too expensive to operate.

The Ventura City Council on Monday will consider giving $15,000 to help prevent the closure of a small library in one of the city's poorest neighborhoods. About two months ago, the Ventura County supervisors temporarily saved the Ventura Avenue library from shutting down for 60 days, giving community leaders time to raise private funds to pay for operating costs.

The Ventura Port District Commission decided Wednesday to consider refinancing its $8.5-million debt on the Ventura Harbor Village and borrowing $1.2 million to refurbish the docks at the village. The board voted to allow a Northridge-based financial consultant to develop a refinancing package that would involve issuing 25- or 30-year certificates of participation, which are similar to bonds.

Ventura city officials on Friday unveiled a proposal to slash up to $3.5 million from the city's budget, eliminating as many as 41 jobs and scrimping on everything from tree trimming to bullets for police officers. No department went unscathed, and if the proposal is adopted by the Ventura City Council next month, residents next fiscal year can expect shabbier parks, unfixed broken sidewalks and fewer police officers. The council needs to cut only $2.
