CHICO, Calif. - The Chico City Council meeting went off without a hitch Tuesday evening.

In a rare move two weeks ago, Mayor Sean Morgan cleared the council chambers after several protestors interrupted the meeting.

There were no distractions Tuesday night as the Chico City Council addressed key issues facing the city, some of which included relocating the Jesus Center. 

The silence in the Chico City Council chambers Tuesday night was a sharp contrast to the meeting two weeks before.

More than a dozen protesters tried to raise awareness about the Mechoopda Tribe, children in cages at the border and Black Lives Matter.

At the Sept. 18  meeting, the Chico City Council asked the staff to come back with a recommendation to close Humboldt Road. A few residents who lived in the area talked about how difficult it is to keep the road clean.

Other speakers mentioned the importance of maintaining Humboldt Road for athletic and tourism reasons.

A major challenge for Chico has been deciding where to place the Jesus Center.

In a unanimous vote, the Chico City Council voted to relocate the Jesus Center where the Silver Dollar BMX track sits.

More heat and sunshine for our area today, and thankfully weaker wind for our dry region. The highs will get hotter, but the wind will also get stronger late in the forecast.
