CHICO, Calif. - The Chico City Council discussed a variety of topics at its meeting on Tuesday, March 5.
Protestors made their voices heard outside of the council chambers as a handful of citizens expressed frustrations about the crime rate and public safety issues.
Inside the meeting, Chico City Manager Mark Orme gave an update on the Camp Fire including the impact to traffic, roads, crime, housing, public works services and how the population boom has even affected Enloe Medical Center.
The council spent a good deal of time discussing a cannabis committee and whether opening such businesses in Chico would be legal or add to what many feel is a growing crime issue.
