CHICO, Calif. - The Chico City Council passed a plan regarding warming centers and is considering teaming up with the Jesus Center for services.
City Manager Mark Orme says the warming centers have been taking on average 35 people per night.
Some of these people are Camp Fire survivors.
The five nights from Feb. 6-10 cost the city around $17,840 to run. This evened out to about $2,215-$3,500 per day.
Ormes believes collaborating with the Jesus Center could cut costs.
The Jesus Center would open up its dining hall and other facilities, while the city would reimburse the center for security services.
This is to keep the surrounding area safe.
The council also wants to work on a comprehensive plan for cooling centers for the summer.
