Possible Shelter Crisis in Chico, Chico Street Crimes Unit Permanent Fixture?
Tuesday evening, the Chico City Council will decide whether to declare a shelter crisis. If approved, the city could use funds from the homeless emergency aid program. Last week Butte County joined Oroville and Gridley in declaring a shelter crisis.


The city council may also decide to make the Chico Police Department’s “Street Crimes Unit” permanent. During the summer, the unit was moved from South Campus to key spots in Chico including the city plaza, public parks and north Esplanade.


Gridley Police Chief Resigns
Gridley Police Chief Dean Price has officially stepped down. He announced his resignation just before the city council meeting Monday night. The council was expected to take a vote on whether the chief would keep his position. Chief Price will officially retire at the end of October.


Rain Causes Concern for Erosion in Burn Areas
On Wednesday, scientists with the “Burned Area Emergency Response Team” will be assessing areas scorched by the Delta, Hirz and Carr Fire. They are working to see if these areas are at risk for mudslides due to soils that no longer absorb water and lack of foliage. For the next few days, the rain is supposed to be light, which scientists say is good for most burn areas. This will promote the regrowth of plants in fertile soil, which helps decrease the risk of flooding.


Man Found in Police Dumpster Arrested in Anderson: Police
Anderson police say they arrested Cody Jenkins, 31, after catching him digging in the police department’s dumpster. Police say he was on felony probation for burglary, had two active warrants for his arrest and had meth on his person.
