Dozens of evicted Grand View Apartment tenants plead for help from city council 

Grand View tenants meet outside the Paso Robles City Council chambers.

–Several dozen tenants evicted from the Grand View Apartments on Spring Street near 2nd Street crowded into the Paso Robles City Council meeting Tuesday night to ask for help.

Most of the 25-30 displaced people, including children, stood at the back of the library conference room while Stephanie Barclay of the SLO Legal Assistance Foundation explained how the owners of the Grand View Apartments received permission to evict the tenants at the dilapidated building, rather than clean up vermin-infested apartments. Barclay asked the council to place the issue on the next meeting’s agenda. Mayor Steve Martin said creating that agenda would come at a later date.

City Manager Tom Frutchey explains the legal protocol.

The Legal Assistance Foundation is conducting a meeting next Wednesday to discuss the predicament facing the evicted tenants.

The council also heard more than an hour of testimony related to Visit SLO Cal. The group receives revenue from self-imposed taxes on lodging establishments and uses the money to promote the area to visitors. Ultimately, the council unanimously approved a resolution recommending the San Luis Obispo County Board of Superiors to approve the renewal of Visit SLO CAL.

The council also proclaimed October as Disability Employment Awareness Month and Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
