9 CANDIDATES JOUST TO FILL VACANT SEAT.

Byline: Jim Skeen Daily News Staff Writer

Nine candidates are vying in the Nov. 4 election to fill the remaining term of the City Council seat formerly held by Paul Ingram.

The winner of the special election will serve for one year. Ingram, the city's former police chief, resigned July 2 to move to Santa Rosa to resume his law enforcement career.

Vying for the post are Larell Anthoney, a real estate broker; Lyle Byington, who is retired; Kim Collins, who lists her profession as self-employed; Robert C. Dacey, a golf pro; Gregory Forystek, an industrial electrician; Fred Hilton, a retired FAA electronics engineer; Pierre Poudevigne, a telecommunications specialist; Bob Smith, a retired firefighter; and Lottie Walker, a retired cosmetologist and a former council member.

Whoever wins the post will join a council that is grappling with finding ways to fund municipal services.

An annual tax of $53 per parcel that provided more than $2 million a year for city services expired in June 1995. Four attempts to replace that tax have been voted down.

An assessment intended to raise $828,495 for fire protection services was approved by the City Council in September 1996, but the passage of Proposition 218 last November means that tax will end in June.

Proposition 218 is intended to block municipal governments from enacting property-based assessments or increasing existing assessments without the approval of voters and specifically forbids property-based assessments for fire and police services.
