The Inglewood City Council will convene on Tuesday, August 18 to write off uncollectable debt, approve cleanup at Centinela Park, accept a donation from WOW Media and set a Public Hearing date for the consideration of approval of a Disposition and Development Agreement between Murphy’s Bowl LLC and the city.
The Inglewood Finance Department is requesting council’s approval to write-off accounts receivable and Gas Tax totaling $1.2 million. The debt was accumulated between 2010 and 2017. It is unclear if the debts were sent to a collection agency. The breakdown is as follows:
- Code Enforcement – $566,241.90
- Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) – $451,966.16
- False Alarms – $71,892.18
- Property Damage – $99,770.73
- Gas Tax Fund – $15,205.50
These uncollectible debts were identified in the state controller’s audit as needing to be addressed.

The city will spend approx. $11,000 to clean up trash and debris from homeless encampments at Centinela Park.
The city will accept an art installation donation from WOW Media, which is located along La Cienega Blvd. between Florence Ave and Manchester Blvd.
Finally, the city will set a Public Hearing for September 3 at 2pm to consider a Disposition and Development Agreement (DDA) between Murphy’s Bowl LLC and the city. The DDA will allow for the development of the 28 acre site for the proposed Clippers Arena. Unfortunately, the accompanying staff report is forged by someone purporting to be City Manager Artie Fields and most importantly the document is missing the sale price of the property.
