Mayor's office says Occupy L.A. encampment will end next week
November 23, 2011 | 5:48 pm

An aide to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa office has confirmed that Occupy L.A. protesters will have to leave their City Hall encampment by next week, saying the city wants to begin repairing the 1.7-acre park.

Today, we informed members of Occupy L.A. that City Hall park shall be closed for rehabilitation at some point next week, said Deputy Chief of Staff Matt Szabo.

He would not say exactly when the park would be closed or how much warning protesters would be given.

We informed them that they would receive ample notice, he said, explaining that the pledge was made to several representatives at a meeting Wednesday.
