Corona City Councilman Steve Nolan has filed for personal bankruptcy, citing almost $2 million in business debts that include $3,361 owed to the city’s Department of Water and Power.

He is seeking Chapter 7 protection, which eliminates most debts except for taxes.

Nolan cited a faltering economy that kept diners home when he closed a Backwoods BBQ restaurant on Green River Road last July and moved another from a large McKinley Street building last August.

He briefly tried to make a go of it in the old Santa Fe Depot late last year but moved out after struggling to comply with zoning requirements.
