Placentia : Streets and Parks Plan, Budget Given Approval
City Council members this week approved a $10.9-million budget for 1985-86 and a five-year, $16-million program for upgrading the city’s streets and parks.
Next year’s budget, which does not include any new programs, adds to the city payroll one employee for business license inspections and zoning enforcement.
A public hearing Tuesday night on the budget and the capital-improvements plan drew no residents’ comments, Deputy City Clerk Betty Wallis said.
The first year of the 5-year plan calls for widening both the Alta Vista bridge and Lakeview Street, city Finance Director Frank Dunnavant said. Other projects are park improvements, new medians, curb and gutter replacements and construction of sewers and storm drains, Dunnavant said.
In other business Tuesday, the council placed several measures on the November ballot. One is a $1.6-million bond issue to pay for improvements to athletic facilities at Kramer Junior High School, including three swimming pools. Another ballot item is an advisory vote on whether to continue a controversial 2% utility tax increase after Dec. 31.
