The Santa Ana City Council, confronted with a budget crisis, will be holding a special closed session to discuss labor negotiations. City leaders and labor groups — particularly police and fire unions — are in the early stages of negotiations to reduce a $30-million budget deficit.
A plan to extend the Foothill Toll Road (state Route 241) to a spot near San Juan Capistrano’s major freeway exit has City Council members concerned about the possible impact on the city. A special council meeting is scheduled Tuesday to discuss the issue.
