Of the $200-million in Measure M funds distributed to cities in Orange County, Villa Park has received $355,000 for street improvements.

Only the recently incorporated Laguna Woods has received less money, $161,000. Anaheim and Santa Ana have received the most, $21.3 million and $20 million, respectively.

Orange County Supervisor Todd Spitzer delivered singing telegrams to pay for his college education in the early 1980s. Today, he's still singing. But, the money he raises benefits charitable causes and organizations. Spitzer serenaded the Villa Park City Council on Tuesday night as part of a fund-raiser for the Friends of the Villa Park Library Inc. "I hear the sound of good solid judgment whenever you talk," he crooned a cappella.

After agreeing that it is the most feasible solution, the City Council this week approved a bankruptcy settlement with the Orange County investment pool. The action would be the second step for cities with claims against the pool. The first step was ratified by most cities, including Villa Park, last year. That move returned to the cities about 80% of their investment in the pool, which collapsed in December 1994.
