[Ed. – Landlords can be sued by their tenants for doing this. Presumably so can Garcetti.]
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said on Wednesday that he had authorized the city to disconnect utility service at a Hollywood Hills house after it hosted several large parties in “flagrant violation” of COVID-19 public health orders.
The announcement comes two weeks after Garcetti first warned that properties hosting “un-permitted large gatherings” could have their water and power service shut off as a consequence.
“With more than 2,000 Angelenos — and over 170,000 Americans — lost to COVID-19, we need every resident to undertake critical safeguards to stop the spread of this virus,” Garcetti said Wednesday. “That includes not hosting or attending parties that put themselves, their neighbors and many others at risk.”
Garcetti said that despite several warnings, this particular house “has turned into a nightclub in the hills.”
