Like a bad allergy, the nasty fight between Ventura Keys homeowners and city officials comes every spring. Each year in June, angry residents demand that the City Council rescind a $2,000 tax levied annually on their property to pay to dredge silt from the waterways behind their luxury homes. They usually lose. But in a surprise move last week, the council waived the assessment for one year.

Richard Francis, Ventura mayor At this juncture, the matter is in litigation, and the council has not taken an official perspective. I need to keep an open mind and wait until I hear from the public. The last official action taken by the city in 1964 says, as a condition to allow the development of the Keys, "a maintenance district shall be formed, encompassing all of the area within the subdivision benefited by the proposed channels." The developer wanted to build expensive homes, and he wanted to build them at the end of the drainage system of the city.
