CHICO, Calif. – Chico Mayor Ann Schwab has called for a special meeting of the city council to discuss coronavirus impacts.

The meeting is set for 3 p.m. Tuesday at the council chamber. City council members will meet to consider amendments to the emergency resolution against the coronavirus.

Vice Mayor Alex Brown has requested to talk about including the statewide mask mandate to the city’s resolution, as well as other state guidelines.

However, this call for a special meeting did not please everyone. Councilmember Sean Morgan posted to Facebook asking why this meeting was happening and said the council agreed to not discuss non-essential business until the public could attend meetings again.

Council members were set to meet one week from today with the public allowed to attend inside a Chico church. That has now changed since Butte County was added to the state's watch list.

The meeting will be virtual, Click Here to watch.
