One item on the agenda is to set up a permanent plan for the temporary solution of "emergency warming centers" that have gone up several times in February during spells where overnight lows hit below freezing. The goal is to have an actual "Code Blue" plan in place, rather than have the shelters be tentative and spontaneous.
Council members will also consider how to provide a 24-hour place for people to go to the bathroom, without inadvertently providing a place for sex, vandalism and drugs use.
Council Member Ann Schwab is set to ask the council to consider a declaration of a climate emergency. It would focus on recognizing global warming and climate change and identify regional partnerships to address environmental impacts on the community.
Mayor Randall Stone is expected to bring the topic of bicycle locker rental fees to the table for discussion.
And the public can expect to hear some of the first reports from the commercial cannabis citizens' advisory committee, which was established during the Feb. 12 council meeting
The meeting is on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 6 p.m. at the City Council Chambers at 411 Main Street in Chico.
