UPDATE 2:20 p.m., August 21, 2019 - Oroville City Council decided to not vote on changing their meeting times.

The meeting times will remain at 6 p.m. on Tuesday nights.

City Council was considering changing the meeting times to 2 p.m. so Council Members would not have to stay for overtime.

It is a topic that brought a mixed reaction from the community.

OROVILLE, Calif. - A proposed change could keep people from attending Oroville City Council Meetings.

The Council is thinking about changing the meeting time from 5:30 p.m. to 2 p.m., which will already be done at the August 20 meeting where they will vote on the time change measure.

Members for the change say it would save money because they wouldn't have to pay overtime for City employees but opponents say many people would not be able to make meetings because of work.

"When I first heard about the change in time, it was tragic for what we stand for and what we have been accustomed to for all these years," said resident Kevin Thompson.

Council members told Action News Now the change should not keep people from having a voice because the council does get most input through email and letters.

"Well, people are working until three or four and I don't think you are getting a variety in the community by cutting them out," said Oroville resident, Tom Rafferty.

Mayor Chuck Reynolds said no matter what time the meetings are, someone will be inconvenienced and there have been people who haven't been able to attend for years.

Winds have calmed down but we remain dry. Temperatures will be in the upper-70s to low-80s for the rest of the week. This quiet weather is good for fire danger but unfortunate since no rain is in the forecast.
