Unhappy with the city's current Web site, Councilman Robert McGowan recently suggested that the City Council put out bids for a professional to update and maintain the site during the next year. McGowan said the Web site is "just as important as cable TV" as a communication tool, yet its design lacks vibrancy and information is rarely updated. McGowan is expected to create standards for the future site, which the council will vote on at its next meeting. Afterward, the council will solicit bids.

The city has joined a new countywide agency representing local governments. The City Council unanimously approved Villa Park's entry into the Orange County Council of Governments. The vote ratified a joint powers agreement between the city and the new council. Councilman Bob Patchin said that signing up does not obligate Villa Park to spend any money.

Term limits for elected officials will be considered Tuesday by the City Council. Options include limiting City Council terms to two consecutive four-year terms or restricting service to eight years total. A measure to limit terms would have to be put before voters for approval, and the council could decide to place the measure on the November 1998 ballot. About 20 years ago, the council adopted term limits but could not enforce the measure due to restrictions under state law.

A new city hotline has yet to begin ringing off the hook, but officials aren't sure if that's a sign of apathy or contentment. The hotline, (714) 998-0250, was set up in October by Councilman Barry L. Denes when he was mayor as a way for residents to voice concerns, comments or criticisms. Mayor Rich Freschi said he believes that Villa Park is the only city in Orange County that offers the service. "I have mixed feelings regarding how little it's used," he said.
