City’s Demand to Close County Medical Shelter Results in County Request for Court Hearing

The County of Los Angeles has filed a request for a District Court hearing with the City of Bell Gardens due to the City’s demand that the owner of the Quality Inn and Suites hotel stop the use of the hotel as a County medical shelter.  On Wednesday, April 15, 2020, the City notified the owner of the hotel to immediately cease taking new patients and transfer existing patients to another location outside of the City.  The hotel owner was further notified that the City will take additional legal action against it if it does not comply with the City’s demand letter by Tuesday, April 21, 2020.  The County’s request to the Court for a hearing does not change the City’s position that the hotel must comply with the provisions of the demand letter.

The County’s request to the Court includes the original demand letter from the City, dated April 15, 2020. The Court document and City demand letter are included below.
