The City Council will decide next month whether to close Angelo's Hamburgers, which has a lawsuit pending against the city.
The council this week scheduled a public hearing for Oct. 14 on revoking the permit for the restaurant at 211 N. Beach Blvd.
If Angelo's owners cannot show "just cause" why the city should not revoke the permit, the city will close down the popular eatery because it does not have proper permits and because it represents "a nuisance" because of noise and the number of people and cars it attracts, City Atty. Jack L. White said.
The restaurant and the city have been in disagreement since another Angelo's opened in Anaheim at 511 S. State College Blvd.
