Mayor Tom Ramiccio said he would ask Resch to repay the money. Resch, whose salary is $71,186, said she wanted to put the matter behind her and would pay back to her department budget the $750 fee for the class and $281 for hotel expenses and mileage. Last summer, the Bar directed Resch to take the course cause she had contacted an opposing yer's client without the lawyer's permission.

Hunter is one of five semifinalists for the 1998-99 presidency of the International CityCounty Management Association. Three finalists will be chosen by Wednesday for interviews on May 1 in Washington, D.C. Hunter, who was hired in November, would keep his city job if chosen president. He is a former vice president of the association. WEST PALM BEACH The mayor has the right to veto a contract under the city charter, ruled Circuit Court Judge Frederick Hazouri on Friday. The decision is a defeat for Crystal Building Maintenance, which sued the city in October after Mayor Nancy Graham vetoed a $119,940 cleaning contract the company won from the city commission. But Hazouri said a contract is awarded by resolution, and since a resolution is legislation, it can be vetoed. A separate lawsuit filed by the commission, which also challenges Graham's veto power, is still pending.

A sUte law requifvs house boat owners with vessels larger than 26 feet to install toilets that pump raw sewage into a holding tank. The waste has to be dumped at a marina or a waste collection station. Boat owners who violate the law face $50 misdemeanor citations. Boaters caught dumping waste face a $2.r0 citation and would have to appear in court. "We have a lot of transient boaters from other states or countries who are totally unaware of our Clean Vessel Act." said Campora. who distributed pamphlets as she conductr-d inspec tions Friday. "We're not gc;ng to be able to stop everybody from dumping, but if boaters are unaware, they can't comply," she said. Swimmers who encounter untreated waste could develop skin rashes, stomach aches or hepatitis. State DEP officials want to increase the number of public and private pumpout stations from 250 to more than f()0 to increase boater use. Boaters pay $5 to use any of the eight state-supported Palm Beach County stati -ns. t y - A A !! c-of f;-?i 3 pitriis Se so n Ll
