Bureau A proposal lo eliminate Ihe $100,000 in county funds paid annually to Long Beach as a contribution for lifeguard services will come before the Board of Supervisors today. L. S.

Each of these cities gels $100,000. Hollinger's recommendations are contained in a report from a six-month study of possible consolidation of beach services provided by the counties and the cities. He is against consolidation. None of the cities want to give up control of I heir beaches, he believes, and if the county took over, it would raise its cost a n e s t i m a t e d $1,646,430. "It seems clear that any further talk of beach consolidation," Hollinger said, "is a waste of time." "We recommend the county subsidy in f u t u r e years he based on SS per off-street parking space provided," the reporl states. "Such subsidy would be made on condition t h a t a parking charge of SI n day is made, and thai Ihe total subsidy amount would be limited to the extent that costs are not offset by operating revenues." In general, the proposal is for the county to lay down the rules to assure economical operation.
