UPDATE 10:09 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, 2019 - Action News Now reporter Laura Eng went to the community meeting in Red Bluff to hear neighbors' concerns. 

"What it feels like is we'll all be punished and feel like we need to stay inside and not be out by having someone so dangerous," said Leslie Henzie, a Red Bluff resident. 

"When it comes to something like this, we're gonna come together and we're gonna fight for our rights. Our county says no," said Lindsay Morris a Red Bluff resident.
