CHICO, Calif. - Some Chico neighbors are raising concerns about debris trucks parked on their streets.

Some people living on Ceres Avenue reported seeing five trucks labeled "disaster recovery operations center." 

Neighbors in the area said they are concerned because they do not know who is driving these trucks.

Action News Now spoke with a neighbor in the area that didn't want to be identified. 

"We don't know where they come from, there is no monitoring," she said. "I have three kids at home, three girls and that makes me nervous for security reasons." 

Other locals in the area said they don't mind the trucks. 

"We just have to deal with it," said Steve Banze, a Chico resident. "We had a tragedy that is up the hill that we need that to get clean up. They paid their registration like everybody else." 

Chico police said any vehicle is allowed to park in the same spot for up to seven days as long as it doesn't block traffic.

The Debris Removal Operation Center did not immediately respond to comment.
