A proposal to restrict the storage of boats, trailers and recreational vehicles in front yards to a maximum of 72 hours a month is on the City Council's agenda for Tuesday. Under the plan, vehicles would have to be stored in an authorized location, such as a garage, rear yard or storage facility, after the 72 hours were up. Homeowners with large lots would be allowed to store vehicles in rear or side yards.

A Villa Park woman accused of violating a city ordinance by feeding ducks in her backyard must stand trial, a judge ruled Friday. Judy Simons had asked that the misdemeanor case against her be dismissed. Orange County Superior Court Judge John Conley denied her request and set June 19 as her trial date but requested a conference May 30 to discuss settling the case. The city passed an ordinance in May 1999 restricting the feeding of wild birds.

The city has drafted an amendment that prohibits residents from feeding large numbers of birds. The change to the bird sanctuary ordinance is expected to be introduced during the next City Council meeting. The draft was requested in March when the council was trying to decide whether a homeowner who fed large numbers of wild ducks was creating a public nuisance. The April 27 meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. at 17855 Santiago Blvd.

And you thought barking dogs were a nuisance. In a suburban squabble that has escalated into a full-blown criminal case, neighbors in Villa Park have lined up against a woman with a love of wild ducks--a love so strong that she put out 50 to 75 pounds of corn for them each day. For two years, at the height of the season, up to 600 ducks would flock into Judy Simons' backyard every day for breakfast.

Changes in the municipal code will allow the city to handle right-of-way problems without having to file public nuisance complaints. The City Council voted this week for the changes, which officials said will make it easier to prod residents to trim shrubs and trees on land that falls within the city's right of way. Under the changed code, the city can notify property owners by letter of such problems.

A simplified way to prod residents to care for shrubs and trees on city right-of-way land is scheduled for final action by the City Council tonight. The council last month gave initial approval to changes in the municipal code allowing city government to handle right-of-way problems without having to file public nuisance complaints, City Clerk Kaysene Miller said. "Property owners are responsible for plantings on abutting right-of-ways," Miller said.

Forget the two-car garage. It's practically passe. Today's toy-hungry elites are building five-, six- and even 20-car garages for their luxury playthings, from motor homes to jet skis to antique car collections. They're paving swaths of land equal to the size of most houses and tacking on car stalls like Lego blocks. Where space is scarce, they're excavating huge stretches of earth for cavernous, underground parking lots filled with pricey classic cars.

The City Council will consider approving an ordinance tonight that would force homeowners to obtain a conditional use permit for garages that fit four or more cars or have garage doors 8 feet or taller. Garages that exceed those standards would require direct approval from the council, and neighbors would be notified about the proposed size. Council members tentatively approved the ordinance last month but must vote for its final adoption.
