Chico City Council votes to enter settlement agreement in homeless case

CHICO, Calif. - In a closed session, the Chico City Council voted unanimously to authorize the city manager and city attorney to enter a settlement agreement with the plaintiffs in the ongoing homeless case, according to the Chico City Clerk.

Debbie Presson, Chico’s City Clerk, said this is not final approval until the presiding judge signs the settlement order, which could take two weeks.

Mayor Andrew Coolidge said he can not legally share what the agreement consists of in the settlement agreement for the Warren v. Chico case.

There were no other details released Tuesday night.

Last April, a Federal Judge ordered that the City of Chico stop homeless eviction and from issuing or enforcing any other 72-hour illegal encampments on public property. 

The judge also stated the City cannot destroy the property of unhoused people that is seized.
