CHICO, Calif. - The Chico City Council voted Monday after a 30-minute meeting to waive the second full reading of the district ordinance and instead approve the ordinance that was ironed out last week. 

This means that the City of Chico has officially amended its municipal code, establishing district elections, which is effective in 30 days, according to Chico City Manager Mark Orme.

This November, voters in four of the seven newly established districts will cast ballots to elect council members. The other three districts will vote in 2022. 

Compromise revisions were made last week to avoid having any of the newly established districts go unrepresented for any period of time. 

However, Orme says once the results of the 2020 census are sometime in 2021, the city council will have to start the whole process over again based on possible shifted demographics.
