The city of Ventura said Thursday that it will abandon plans to stop paying its share of county sales tax if it can get the money back in services, resources or property. County officials looking to defuse an explosive situation quickly embraced the idea. "I'm very pleased with it," said Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Kathy Long. "It took what could have been a very complicated situation and made it easier."

The Ventura City Council today will consider whether to tax Ventura Keys homeowners for dredging the silt out of their back-yard waterways. The Keys homeowners, who are expected to protest the assessment, could be charged $1,733 annually. Keys residents, who number about 300, say the city and the county should pay for the cleanup because runoff from the Arundell Barranca and 28 city drains is responsible for polluting the Keys.

With governments all over California using tax breaks to attract major league stadiums, shopping malls and auto dealers, the voters of Ventura are considering banning all such public subsidies in their city. If a local ballot initiative passes Tuesday, it would be the first time in California that a city's electorate has issued a blanket ban on subsidies to developers, local government experts say.

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.

Ventura Keys residents packed City Council chambers Monday to protest an annual assessment for dredging the silt out of their back-yard waterways. The Ventura City Council was considering late Monday whether to tax an average property owner about $1,725 for periodic dredging and cleaning up debris. The maintenance district was formed in September, 1991, over vocal objections from many of the 300 Keys homeowners.

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.
