Before we make the final payment to the general contractor, how can we be sure that all of the other subcontractors have been paid? T.R., Long Beach. / . ' , · ' You can't, but it shouldn't cause you any major problems. Formerly, subcontractors and suppliers of materials who didn't get paid by the general contractor could place a mechanic's lien on the homeowner's property without prior notice. Under a 1967 revision in the law, however, each subcontractor must file a preliminary notice with the homeowner to obtain his lien rights in case he doesn't get paid. To protect yourself from mechanic's liens, obtain releases from all the subcontractors and suppliers who sent you preliminary notices - either directly from them or through the contractor. Any'subcontractor or material supplier who doesn't file a preliminary notice virtually forfeits his lien rights, even if he isn't paid by the contractor. Since subcontractors generally have 20 days fromjthe date they start work to file their notices, you should wait 20 days after the project is completed before making your final payment to the contractor. Minibike park Is there any place in Long Beach where I can ride a minibike legally? J.H., Long Beach. ' ~ · You can ride your minibike at Honda Haven, an 8- acre motorcyle park at 700 W. Seaside Blvd., Terminal Island, just west of the Navy Commissary. The park, which is operated by the Long Beach Safety Council and the Scrtoma Club of Long Beach, is open Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Admission is $2 per person for riders of minibikes and motor- cylces with less than 90cc displacement. The price is $3 per person for larger motorcyles up to 250cc, which is the maximum size allowed. A person can pay an annual admission fee of $50 (f 60 per family), which entitles him to use the park any time it's open. The minimum age for riders is 8 years old, and helmets must be worn. A spokesman for the Long Beach Police Depaitment said that it is illegal for minibikes to be ridden on any public street or on private property without the owner's permission. Collectors 9 item The city's rate for rubbish collection has 'increased by 48 per cent since August 1973 - from $2.70 every two months to $4 in my case. Can Action Line find out the reason for this large increase? E.R., Long Beach. It is true that you are paying 48 per cent more for refuse collection now than you did in August 1973 - the month before a rate increase took effect - but at that time, the fee had remained the same since 1970. Consequently, city officials maintain that the monthly rate has been increased by 48 per cent in the last five years, not the last one and a half. In 1970, the monthly rate for a single-family dwelling was $1.50, a duplex, $1.35; and an apartment, $1.15. The rate was increased to $2, $1.80 and $1.40, respectively, in September 1973, and the current monthly fee is $2.20, $2 and $1.60, respectively. Fees were first assessed in Long Beach for refuse collection in October 1958 at ?1 per month for a single-family dwelling and it took 12 years then for the rate percentage to be increased by as much as it has in the last five' years. John Rowley, director of the city's refuse division, said the city initially set its fees too low to meet expenses and the recent increases have been necessary to pay higher fuel and equipment costs. Even with the rate increases, city officials estimate that the fees will cover only 92 per cent of the costs of rubbish collection during the 1974-75 fiscal year and the city will have to make up the balance in tax revenue from the city's general fund. Old cars, modern costs Are there any auto shops in the area that specialize in rebuilding and refurbishing antique cars? M.H., Long Beach. Long Beach Restoration Center, 1212 Euclid Ave., 438-2773, and Peters Antique and Classic Auto Restoration, 12205 E. Whittier Blvd., Whittier, 693-3514, do both engine and body work in restoring old cars. Old Wheels, 1207 Euclid Ave., 433-9103, restores engines on classic cars. The cost of restoring a vintage car like a Model A Ford is about $5,000, according to Charles Peters, owner of Peters Antique and Calssic Auto Restoration. For rarer antique autos whose parts are not readily available and have to be fabricated, costs would run much higher. Peters said that in restoring a vintage car every piece of the car is taken apart and chemically stripped, the way his firm does it. He says it takes about six months to completely restore an antique car including the engine, body work, frame and interior. · ; Jockey school ,' I would like to attend the Rex Ellsworth Jockey School.
