OROVILLE, Calif. - People in Oroville will now have to wait to see if Cal Fire will take over fire protection in the city.
City administrator, Bill LaGrone said the city canceled Tuesday's meeting after a council member tested positive for COVID-19.
City leaders were set to decide whether to stay with Oroville Fire or switch to Cal Fire in that meeting.
"It's important to see what's going on within the city," said Roxanne Eldridge, from Oroville. "This is a big move for the city so I've been researching it a lot and seeing the pros and cons here and I've been following this because it's our community and its public safety and very important for everyone."
The council learned about Oroville Fire's five-year growth plan during its last meeting.
Cal Fire presented its plan to the council back in January.
The next Oroville City Council meeting is scheduled for March 2, no word yet on whether the council expects to reach a decision that day.
