CHICO — The Chico City Council voted 6-1 on Tuesday to direct staff to partner with the Jesus Center to operate an emergency warming center program and to continue opening centers when temperatures drop below freezing. This comes as the council directed staff at the last meeting to open up a place for people to get warm during the recent cold snap, allocating $100,000 to make it happen. The next day, city staff prepared a large tent structure with heaters and bathrooms in the Depot Park area that was open for about five days. Again on Sunday, a warming center was set up in the same location, with plans to keep it open through Wednesday morning. Councilor Sean Morgan gave the sole dissenting vote on Tuesday, voicing concern about lack of involvement from the county and the possibility of nonprofits seeking more funding from the city down the line. Prior to the vote at the last meeting, City Manager Mark Orme had been working on developing a Code Blue program for the city at the direction of the council. A Code Blue program would include triggers for opening a warming center in the future. Orme suggested that a center be opened when temperatures below 32 degrees were forecast.[related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”] There were several options before the council to move forward with a program, including: partnering with a nonprofit to run it, keeping Public Works in charge and utilizing third party contractors, directing staff to continue seeking a private or alternate space for a warming center, or establishing a new fire captain position with a comprehensive emergency services function, including administration of the Code Blue program. After hearing an update from the Sustainability Task Force, the council voted 4-3 in favor of some of its recommendations, including adopting the state’s new greenhouse gas emissions goals locally and also creating a new climate action plan. Councilors Morgan, Schwab and Ory voted in opposition. Before that, the same motion with an addendum to turn the Sustainability Task Force into a city commission was made by Councilor Ann Schwab, but failed 3-4. Councilors Scott Huber, Karl Ory and Schwab voted in favor. The council also voted 5-2 in favor of purchasing two portable restrooms to place in a location to be determined and to pursue funding for a Portland Loo, working with the Butte County Association of Governments. Councilors Kasey Reynolds and Morgan voted against the motion. A discussion on 24/7 public restrooms was on the agenda at the request of Huber, who made his request at the Jan. 15 meeting. City staff presented different options for the council to consider as part of the 2019-2020 fiscal year budget, including the purchase of a couple of more traditional portable toilets for the downtown area, possibly with some type of artistic barrier surrounding them, or the purchase of a Portland Loo portable toilet system, specifically designed as a 24-hour facility. The council did not get to the agenda item regarding a potential citizen’s advisory committee on commercial cannabis before this newspaper’s deadline. The city’s internal affairs committee had suggested that the citizen’s advisory committee include: a city council member, an expert from the cannabis industry with an understanding of state regulations, a person from the legal community, a law enforcement representative, a public health representative, a local business or Chamber of Commerce representative, a code enforcement representative, a Chico State University representative, a Chico Unified School District representative and two individual community members. This came after the council voted 5-2 at the last meeting, with Morgan and Reynolds against, to have the internal affairs committee come up with stakeholders for a citizen’s advisory committee on commercial cannabis. Vice Mayor Alex Brown asked that the council have a discussion on commercial cannabis and then brought a template ordinance to be considered at the Feb. 5 meeting. Currently cannabis businesses are banned in the city of Chico as well the other cities in Butte County and the county itself. Other meeting highlights As part of his Camp Fire update, Orme mentioned a bill signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom last week that will provide property tax backfill for the local community. Fire Chief Steve Standridge also gave a presentation on fire threat in Chico, saying that some high-risk locations included Bidwell Park and densely populated apartment buildings. The council also voted 7-0 to drop bicycle locker rent at the Park and Ride to $5 per month. This item was on the agenda at the request of Mayor Stone. After a presentation on the dangers of flavored tobacco by Dr. Andrew Miller, a public health officer for Butte County, the City Council voted 7-0 to direct the internal affairs committee to discuss flavored tobacco regulations locally. Peggy Henry was recognized by the mayor at the beginning of the meeting for 25 years of service to the city, including Bidwell Park maintenance. The council also made appointments to the arts commission by ballot.
