CHICO, Calif. - Chico Public Works has set up barriers to get ready for the outdoor dining in Downtown Chico.
In a post on Facebook, public works says the local building contractor Slater and Sons donated the barriers to help save local businesses money and giving them the spaces to seat people outside.
Restaurants still have to full out their outdoor dining permits but these are helping speed the process up.
Last month, the City of Chico issued and emergency order temporarily expanding outdoor dining at existing food establishments, allowing them to utilize private common areas, as well as public spaces and sidewalks.
