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.

Taft Avenue divides Villa Park and Orange, so the two cities are dividing the cost of repairing the avenue. The Villa Park City Council unanimously voted last week for a joint agreement with Orange that calls for maintenance work on Taft Avenue from Sycamore Street to Loma Street. The maintenance includes street sealing and pavement rehabilitation. Orange's share of the work is estimated to cost $21,402, and Villa Park's portion is estimated at $25,676.

A divided City Council has approved an ordinance that would impose term limits for council members if voters approve it on Nov. 3. The council last December approved placing the term limit measure on the ballot and letting the voters decide whether council members should serve for no more than two terms, or a total of eight years. While this week's action was merely a housekeeping item, opponents of the measure spoke out against it. Council members Bob Bell and Patricia L.

A baseball coach has struck out with the City Council. Dave Ochoa, baseball coach at Villa Park High School, had urged the council to change the no-parking hours along part of Santiago Boulevard, near the school. Ochoa said the current rules, which prohibit parking on Santiago until after 3 p.m., are a hardship for players and fans trying to get to after-school games near the high school.

Call it an appeal to the umpires. At the request of Dave Ochoa, Villa Park High School's baseball coach, the City Council today will consider changing a one-hour parking ban near the school's ball field. Ochoa said that the daily 2-to-3 p.m. ban is bad for baseball players and fans. "This is when our fans, opponents, coaches and umpires arrive to prepare for the game," Ochoa wrote in a letter to the council.

Following a long pattern of backing a proposed commercial airport at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station, the City Council has unanimously voted to support legal efforts on behalf of the project. The council's action endorses the county's legal defense of its environmental impact report and reuse plan for El Toro. That plan calls for converting the military field to a civilian airport. Foes of a new airport are challenging both the county's environmental impact report and the suggested conversion.

Two major contracts--one for expansion of the Civic Building and the other for street repairs--will come before the City Council on Tuesday. City Manager Fred Maley said the two projects will be among the biggest spending decisions by the council this year.

For the second month in a row, the City Council has voted to defer a decision on whether Villa Park will join a countywide fire authority. At issue is a proposed Joint Powers Authority that would govern the county Fire Department. The proposed authority, scheduled to be in operation this fall, would consist of representatives from the county Board of Supervisors and one person each from the 16 incorporated cities currently served by the Orange 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.

The city has received 17 bids for a project to build an addition to the Civic Building, and the City Council may award a contract after reviewing the proposals at its meeting today.
