Chico, CA. -- Chico city leaders are partnering with the Jesus Center for a long-term extreme weather solution for the homeless population.

At Tuesday night's city council meeting, council members decided to examine a partnership with the center on a permanent solution to the recent warming tents, which are costing the city about $2,000/day.

City Manager Mark Orme says the details need to be worked out, but he expects the center to be a cost-effective solution.  The plan is to set up cots in the center's large dining hall.   Says Orme, "The dining hall, which is already in a pre-existing building, so the cost with using the tent will go away.  And so we anticipate there will be costs, but the cost burden will be dramatically less."

Orme says the city plans to expand the cold weather program to the summer months, to open the JC in extreme heat.  But those details also need to be worked out.

It certainly didn't feel like early December around northern California this afternoon with plentiful sunshine and much warmer than average highs. A cold front is approaching, but we unfortunately don't have rain or snow in our forecast.
