The Inglewood City Council will convene on Tuesday, September 1st, to approve extending eviction protections through the end of September.
The eviction protection initiative is to protect Inglewood residents who are facing financial uncertainties due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. On March 17, 2020, the city declared a local emergency after Gov. Gavin Newsom issued various Executive Orders to halt evictions for renters impacted by COVID-19.
The city will approve payment in the amount of $24,284.80 to Constant and Associates Inc. for an Emergency Operations Plan despite the city having its own Office of Emergency Services (OES).
The city continues to gear up for the opening of the Housing Protection Department by selecting the Law Office of Alan Seltzer to provide legal consulting to amend the housing protection ordinance to include rental registration enforcement measures, define duties of the Rental Board, and include all rental properties in the City’s Ordinance for rent increase and just cause eviction protections. The contract was exempt from a competitive bidding process and totals $150,000 which will come from the general fund.
Finally, the city will approve a contract with Best Contracting Services Inc. in the amount of $723,406 for a new roof for the Main Library.
And as usual City Manager Artie Fields’ signature is not consistent on official city documents.
