OROVILLE, Calif. - A law firm representing two Oroville City Council members has filed a request to Mayor Chuck Reynolds to change the way he conducts business at city council meetings.

Paperwork sent to the Mayor and the Oroville City Council by the law offices of Olson Hagel & Fishburn LLP of Sacramento on April 10, 2019 says the firm represents councilmembers Janet Goodson and Linda Draper, who say they were removed from all of their committee assignments on March 19, 2019, without prior notice and without public discussion.

Goodson and Draper are the only women on the Oroville City Council.

In the letter, the lawyers demand that the Oroville City Council comply with the Brown Act. The attorneys also demanded the city correct the action within 30 days. If the city does not correct the action the firm says it will take legal action.
