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.

Another mostly sunny and hot day for northern California today, quite similar to yesterday. Our weather will begin to change tomorrow, however, as a disturbance brings more clouds, cooler air, and a few showers and thunderstorms.
