Lancaster city officials are seeking to have the Hotel Brunswick shut down on the grounds that it is a nuisance.
The city filed a complaint in Lancaster County Court Monday laying out its case, citing numerous police calls, code violations and failure to pay taxes.
Also on Monday, a county judge granted a separate request by city and county officials to temporarily halt the sale of alcohol at the hotel.
“The premises as currently being operated and maintained has become a public nuisance,” Mayor Rick Gray said Monday. “We have an obligation to the residents of the City of Lancaster and visitors to the city.”
