The City of Eureka filed a Motion for Additional Receiver Authority or, in the Alternative,
for Replacement of the Receiver, in the City of Eureka v. Squires litigation on December 28, 2016.
The City filed the motion seeking the expansion of receivership powers or alternatively, the replacement of the current court-appointed receiver.

Staff also is concerned about the length of time between the appointment of the receiver (2013) and the slow pace of repairs, and in many cases, the continued failure to address the dilapidated conditions at the properties for the nearly six years that this action has been pending.
The City’s motion is scheduled for January 23, 2017 at 1:45 p.m. in Courtroom 3 of the
