Campaign spending in the county's least populous city promises to rank among the lowest, as none of the six City Council candidates have spent, or expect to spend, more than $1,000, according to mandatory campaign finance documents. Although Villa Park is an affluent bedroom community, when it comes to elections, "there's not much money here," said council candidate Robert Fauteaux, adding that he will probably not spend more than $600 on publicity and mailers.

In the wake of the recent heated election campaign for City Council, anonymous "poison pen" letters are now circulating in the city, Mayor Barry L. Denes said. Denes denounced the unsigned letters in a speech at the council meeting this week. He said the anonymous missives unjustly attack him, Councilman Joseph S. Barsa and newly elected Councilwoman Patricia L. Bortle. Denes said the letters imply that he, Barsa and Bortle were involved in unethical politicking, which he categorically denied.

Most candidates around Orange County were busy filing their campaign finance statements to meet Thursday's deadline. Not so the six men vying for two seats on the City Council here. Because none of the six plan to spend more than $1,000, each is exempt from filing any more statements, city officials said Friday. "All six of the candidates filed the short form when they took out their papers," said Kaysene Miller, city clerk.

Lingering bitterness about a fire authority dispute surfaced during the recent City Council election. The three incumbents, all of whom survived the election, noted that the battle over the fire authority actually was settled a week before the election. At a special meeting Oct. 31, the council voted to join a new, countywide fire-protection board called the Joint Powers Authority (JPA). The City Council majority initially opposed joining the new authority.

Coyote control has become a major issue in the campaign for two open seats on the City Council. Residents packed a council meeting last month to tell officials that they have lost pets to coyotes and to demand government action, saying that attacks on young children might be next. One council candidate, retired Marine Lt. Col. William A. Dougherty, was among the speakers at the Sept. 24 session.

Debate over fire protection in the city is heating up the race for the Nov. 8 City Council elections. * Steve Loritz, the lone opposition candidate who hopes to oust one of the three incumbents, says the controversy over fire protection is definitely a concern of residents of this wealthy little city with a population of 6,400.

Barry L. Denes was elected mayor for a year last week by his fellow council members. Denes, 48, said the council's biggest challenge next year will be balancing the city's budget. "We're going to have to closely watch revenues and our expenses as we have for the past two years because I don't see any relief coming from the state in 1994," he said.

In this sleepy little bedroom community, the race for City Council promises to be a decidedly low-key affair as candidates offer their ideas for preserving the pretty town. Local concerns include whether to allow horses on the city's recreational trails, whether to consider contracting with Orange instead of the county for fire protection, and how to tackle traffic and noise.
