CHICO, Calif. - Chico City Council will meet for the first time after Scott Huber and Kami Denlay resigned on Tuesday.

Chico City Council can't do business as usual as Mayor Andrew Coolidge said they had to keep Tuesday’s agenda light because they are down two council members.

City council members will accept the resignation of Scott Huber and Kami Denlay at the meeting.

The next step will be to decide to appoint two new council members or have a special election.

A special election would cost the city over $300,000 but appointing two new council members should cost less than 1,500.

Some people tell me they want to be able to vote for who runs the city.

“I just think that people should be able to vote for whoever is going to be ruling or making decisions that is going to affect the whole town,” said Maria Herrera. “So, I don't know, I just don't believe in getting someone imposed on you.”

Coolidge said the cost of both options could impact how the council votes to replace Huber and Denlay.

He also said the City of Chico has not held a special election to fill council seats in more than 75 years.

City Council will meet at city hall at 6 p.m. Tuesday to decide if it will appoint new council members or have a special election.
