BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Butte County Board of Supervisors met on Monday to discuss a temporary housing ordinance that allowed Camp Fire evacuees to live on RV's on properties in the Camp Fire burn scar.

The meeting began at 3:15 p.m. and county officials and Action News Now reporter Spencer Joseph already spoke with residents in the county who are upset about the repeal of the ordinance. 

The County, Town, State, and FEMA have determined that allowing survivors to reside in temporary dwellings on their property if there is fire debris from a structure 120 square feet or larger may impact the justification for Private Property Debris Removal (PPDR) activities and federal reimbursement. 

The County and State are working together to identify options for residents impacted by these changes.
