In a decision involving a Ventura Harbor marina development bankruptcy, the state Supreme Court said Thursday that local governments cannot be forced to pay for lawsuit settlements by raising property taxes. Taxpayer advocates praised the decision, saying that a ruling favorable to the Ventura Port District's creditors would have paved the way for tax increases statewide and virtually overturned portions of Proposition 13, which limits property tax increases.

The state Court of Appeal has upheld a multimillion-dollar judgment against the Ventura Port District in favor of a former development firm that went bankrupt after lengthy delays in its attempts to build the Ventura Harbor Village. Although it reduced the monetary award slightly--to $15.6 million--the appellate panel in Ventura ruled unanimously that the port district, which runs the Ventura Harbor, did not act in good faith in its dealings with Ocean Services Corp.

Ventura Keys homeowners and the Ventura City Council are expected to battle it out at City Hall today, when the council considers taxing waterfront residents for dredging the silt out of their back-yard canals. "It will be the second annual bloodletting," said Donald Adams, a Keys resident and attorney who is involved in a residents' lawsuit against the city. The conflict started in September, 1991, when the council established a Keys maintenance district amid bitter objections from residents.

The owner of a Ventura mobile home park filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the city, alleging that the city's Mobile Home Rent Review Board should have granted a higher rent increase in December. Pinnacle Holdings Inc., the owner of Imperial Ventura Mobile Estates Park, contends in its Ventura County Superior Court suit that it was entitled to more than the nearly 3% increase the board allowed at a hearing on Dec. 16, 1992.
