CHICO, Calif. - The city of Chico is considering a curfew if there is a PG&E power outage.
Chico's police chief is expected to pitch the idea to the city council on Tuesday's meeting on Aug. 6.
PG&E could potentially cut power, possibly for several days in a row because of extreme fire danger.
The public safety proposal says that would be a disruption to emergency services, traffic controls, and could put people in danger.
If the ordinance passes, police have the authority to make misdemeanor arrests for those violating curfew.
