Why not move the operation to 78 Table Mtn Blvd (the welfare office) and put them in the space vacated by Oroville Aduld Ed??? they would only need a couple of offices, should be cheaper than having only 3 employees in that big buiding on Baldwin

Oroville has no stores, and no help for people out off work.What a shame that they just cant get it together.I
will not shop Oroville anymore and I plan on leaving, after waiting for years for things to change.It is just getting worse.Yes I do have a job and I do have a home.
I know there is a lot of people who dont have computers and cant afford to drive to Marysville to apply for a job.This is wrong.

LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE A JOB IN SAN FRANCISCO AND NOT IN OROVILLE. YOU DON'T NEED A COMPUTER TO FILE, YOU CAN GO TO THE LIBRARY AND USE THERE COMPUTERS. AND YOU HAVE TO GO TO TOWN TO LOOK FOR A JOB. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A CAR THERE ARE BUSSES. NICE VACA. FOR THEM.

NO, Sorry but I live in Oroville and have lived here for 22 years. For 22 years Christmas shpping,
out of town.Dinner, out off town. Hospital out if town.Costco, out off town.I feel for the people in Oroville that need help.I don't think the city offers up enough resourses to those less fortunate.

It looks like you don't understand what an ISP Point Of Presence is.

Take a bus? If I didn't have a car, I would have to walk 10+ miles to the nearest bus stop.
