CHICO, Calif, - One Chico man is calling out the city council for not focusing enough on violent crime.

Murray Lind told Action News Now he thinks city leaders are putting crime on the backburner, and he let them know what he thinks at last week's council meeting.

Lind has lived in Chico since 2002. He says he's thinking about moving because of the spike in crime.

Lind said the other issues, like global warming and legal pot sales in the city are important, but wants the council to narrow in on what he thinks is most important.

"Not focusing on it in the realm of other issues that public safety entails like maybe the safety of roadways or the safety of highways or building signs but more importantly on the safety of its citizens and the thing that makes us feel most unsafe is hearing about violent crime occuring in our town," Lind said.

Lind says he will be at the next city council meeting on April 16th, and wants anyone who agrees with him to join him.
