On April 4, 2017, the City of Chino received a claim for damages from Carlos Anthony Madrigal alleging the City was aware of, and failed to properly maintain, a dangerous road condition (grate) located at 12233 Central Ave.  As a result, Mr. Madrigal sustained multiple injuries while riding his bicycle. Claimant demands $3,000,000 in general damages.
