Code Enforcement Officers do door to door outreach on Measure A

Four groups of Butte County Code Enforcement Officers went door to door in Thermalito today, telling residents the facts about Measure A.

Measure A was passed last November, became effective this year, and will change the playing field for all medical marijuana growers in the county.

It limits grows based on parcel sizes, and for residents of Thermalito, that generally meant a max grow size of 50 square feet.

Lead Code Enforcement Officer Chris Jellison said today was a success, despite a lack of familiarity with the change in land-use code.

"Once they say they're not familiar with it, that way we have an outlet for us to educate them on it," Jellison said.

Butte County now has a total of seven code enforcement officers that will enforce Measure A. They visited 65 houses in Thermalito today.

Yesterday, a Butte County judge denied a legal complaint filed by a group of medical marijuana patients in the county against Measure A.

But a representative of the patients tells Action News Now they will have another court date April 1st.
