OROVILLE, Calif. - The Oroville City Council will vote on Wednesday to decide on whether or not to repeal the commercial cannabis ordinance.

The ordinance was passed last month in hopes that it would solve a major budget problem. 

Action News Now spoke with Mayor-Elect Chuck Reynolds about the city's current financial state and how this vote might impact that. 

"This city wasn't in as bad of shape financially as portrayed financially," Reynolds said. "It wasn't that bad. So, there's certainly no dire straight situation. There's certainly room and time for pursuing other revenue making interests." 

Reynolds said he thinks the city will continue to get funding from alternatives such as the growing housing market and newly added businesses in the area.
