CHICO, Calif. - The Chico City Council voted to accept a $50,000 donation from PG&E that will help offset costs from the city due to the Camp Fire.
The money will be used to repair road damage caused by a large increase in traffic since the Camp Fire. Potholes are especially noticeable around the FEMA Assistance Center at the Chico Mall.
While the money is not expected to solve all problems, City Manager Mark Orme said it will certainly help.
"We're just really excited to be able to be a recipient of that donation," Orme said. "And we'll use it for the public's benefit to ensure that those repairs are made as quickly as possible for a vast amount of impacts that have already been occuring over the past eight weeks."
Orme said it is not clear exactly when the money will come through but he expects it will be in a matter of weeks at the most.
