CHICO, Calif. -- Newly elected council member and appointed Mayor of Chico, Andrew Coolidge says he plans to lead the city in looking into homelessness solutions including shelter expansion as the city bans camping in city parks.

Mayor Coolidge says pandemic hurdles include public health and well-being, as well as making sure the city stays on track of its budget.

He says the survival of local businesses is top priority and will work to help them be able to open outside, have access to city sidewalks, or whatever else it takes to help them stay afloat.

He says he'll work to find a middle ground between the requests of the state, and the mayor does not believe that Butte County should be grouped with the Greater Sacramento region when it comes to the new stay at home order.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
