   Corona Daily Independent (Newspaper) - June 10, 1976, Corona, California                                 ri  By JAY roebuck r Corona City Council members met vMh City Manager Jim Wheaton for iC minutes yesterday afternoon in ^^utive session in an attempt to ref^olve recent conflicts between ti^ (;otmcil and staff members, retails of the mating were not reyealed, but council members today did disqiss their general impressions of what had been accomplished.  Generally, council membej:^ said they felt the meeting had b^h useful ainid that another session is hot n^ed at this time. No action was taken at yesterday's meeting. " '"We basically discussed our dif-feienc^ with management," said (Ikiuncibnan Tom Gunderson; "and w;hat we expected of each other as council members."  Gunderson termed the session "really a rôundtable discussion" and said that he felt it had been "wor-thwhUe."'*'  "I think we have a better understanding of what each one feels about the situation. I think we certainly agreed that we haven't had the harmony on the council that we should, and maybe this discussion helped."  Councilman Bill Bass said he felt the session "accomplished what I ivanted it to. I dotft really think there ever were two sides anyway."  Bass also said that he ïavoVed "doing this every now and then just to thrash things but."  Councilman Ira Calvert said he  believed, the session had helped "Clear the air."  Councilman Don Rapp, who requested the special session, termed it a "good constructive meeting." He also said he believed the meeting will lead to improved relations between the council and the city manager.  Asked wh^her the session had cleared: up questions he raised publicly at the last councU session about staff information on the water project engineering, Rapp replied that the matter "was cleared up prior to the meeting,'' through talks with Wheaton.  Mayor Flora Spiegel* declined to discuss yesterds^y's meeting. She did say that she doesn't think another meeting is required at the present  time, but she ^ indicated thai- one might be want^ at a ,later date.  Wheaton was out of the city today and could not fa« reached for comment.  The problems between the city council and city manager erupted at the last council session when Rapp quizzed Wheaton at len^ about the water system engineering in4 formation. Ra|^ said he felt that Wheaton had misled him about proposed changes «uid said he didn't "appreciate it." Wheaton denied that chahges had been made or that the council had been misled. '  After the Tuesday night council session last week; Rapp decided to sedc a special meeting and fonnaUy  asked Mayor Spiegel Ibst Thursday morning to call the sesston.  That day, a story pubilished in The Daily Independent quoted former Assistant City Manager Art Goulet at length about l^liriticisms of the city staff and especially of current Assistant city Manager Gene Donovan.  Goulet also was asked if he is se^dng the city manager's job through his close relationship with some members of the city council. Gould said that he had never con-sidered'that poMibility {md took the occasion to praise Wheaton as "a very cwnpetent guy."  Goulet, a partner in ttie firm of CG^ Engineering, is a bidder on a portion of the water system contract.  The city staff has recommended that the entire contract go to Montgomery Engineering of Pasadena.  Wheaton has said on several occasions that the basic problem betwran the council and city staff is the lack of long-range goals for the ' city, ^{e maintains that goal-setting is : essential if the council-manager form of government is to function. He also points out that he can only carry out policiies designed to reach a goal if goals are established by the city: council.  Several cmmcil members also say. they believe tiiat goals should be established, but it is not known -jwhether the matter of goal-setting ^ was discussed at yesterday's' executive session.  i88th Year, No. 257  Corona, California  Thursday, June 10,1976  Phone 737-T234  14 Pages—15 Cents  by parks panel  The City of Corona should try to obtain use of five acres on-a future senior high^hool site on FuUerton Avenue for a soccer field, the Parks and Recreation Commission decided, -lasl-Hi^t.

The açtibn was taken on the recomrnendation of Parks and Recreation EMrcntor Ken Itedlin, who saidthat City Manager Jim Wheaton had suggested the location. Problems had developed with other sites that were under, consideration.  Mary Plaza, a representative of the Corona Soccer Qub, one group which  - has requested a fidd,^ said the dubl viewed the site as a good one, easily accesible to club idayers, espedaOy a younger group from El Cerrito that pahicipates.  "—There-currèntly is no regulation-^ size soccer field Ü1 Corona.  Although the decision was unanimous, some commission members said they were hestitant because of uncertainty about whether future school us^ might  - force the soccer fidd to move. Redlin said the district has no plans for construction for the next 10 years, but also mentioned that the facilities could be moved later if need be. .

He also raki there was pro^bly support for $15,300,Leven for a tem: poraty site, but if a temporary site ran up to $50,000, "you {com  missioners) may run into opposition." - 1 Z Some commissioners also said they >vanted to pick a place where other sites could be added, because the rapidly-growing interest in soccer ndici  indicates more fields wiu t>e neeaea. ~ I Commissioner Howard Jayne said he would support the. spot: if it'turns out the school district wiU agree to plaiis for long-range use.
