Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Where are local jobs for the cleanup being posted?

Answer: Alliance for Workforce Development (AFWD) is a great resource for people looking for local cleanup jobs. For more details on jobs, CLICK HERE or call (530) 616-1053 for information.

Question: Is there any information on activities in the CA legislature working to curtail insurance companies from cutting off insurance or raising insurance rates?

Answer: The California Department of Insurance is charged with overseeing insurance companies in the State of California. California Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara and his staff have been closely involved with recovery efforts since the Camp Fire. The best way to get information on current legislation or other programs related to insurance is to contact the Department of Insurance at or (800) 927-4357.

Question: Any update on trees?

Answer: The Town is still waiting on Cal OES and FEMA to respond to our proposal for a program to remove trees on private property. We have received some favorable indications, but details of the program have not been worked out. As soon as we have information, we will announce the program publicly along what residents need to do to participate.
