Orange County sheriff's deputies will continue serving Villa Park, but at a slightly higher cost. The City Council recently approved a five-year contract, ending June 30, 2003, with the Sheriff's Department. The contract is up 6.9% from this year, largely due to increased labor costs. The contract will cost the city $604,105 for the 1998-99 fiscal year, which begins July 1.

However, the council last week put one condition on its continued membership, insisting the fire authority must have at least $20 million in reserve funds. The authority is a partnership of county government and all cities served by the county fire department.

The City Council voted this week to delay action at least for a month on whether the city should join a proposed joint powers authority overseeing the county Fire Department. Mayor Barry L. Denes was among council members who charged that organizers of the proposed authority have not fully responded to Villa Park's questions. "Clearly, to me, you have to have everything on the table before you can say it's the JPA" for Villa Park, Denes said.

A group of former council members and mayors warned the council that it should not consider contracting with the city of Orange for fire services. The former officials said the city should instead join the new countywide Joint Powers Authority, or JPA. The authority is a proposed coalition of county government and 18 cities whose fire services are provided by the Orange County Fire Department.

The current year's bill from the county was $491,894; in the budget year that starts July 1, the cost goes up to $521,446. The price hike does not give added service to the city, City Manager Fred W.
