Why are we providing housing for severly mentally ill? Don't they belong in an institution? Mexico would love to provide for them as long as we would pay a reasonable amount.

STOP PROVIDING AN OUT FOR THESE PEOPLE! Before all you bleeding hearts chime in on me, I understand these are tough times and a lot of DECENT, HARDWORKING FAMILIES are struggling. However, the majority of people out there who thrive on these entitilements are DIRTBAGS. The influx of panhandlers and dirtbags to CHICO is the worst I have ever seen. They all go out and panhandle or abuse their drug of choice, then wander over to the Jesus Center or Torres Shelter for a warm bed and warm food every night. Then wake up and start the viscous cycle all over again. Hopefully Butte County will not get this grant and all the filth will wander to the next county giving out hand outs!

@Thomas Payne, I just read you comment from 2 years ago. I hope you experience poverty to the deepest extent possible. Life is just an experience, and I hope you get to experience it ALL.

You need a permit to feed the homeless in Philadelphia. Also, Atlanta, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, Miami, Oklahoma City and more than 50 other cities have adopted anti-camping or anti-food-sharing laws, according to the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty, USA Today reports. Is it any wonder why they're showing up in Butte County ?

Let's give them all a one way ticket to Chester, let them settle in for a few months. Then, having had to share your town with them, please reinstate your position.

Albany will pay 28 homeless people $3,000 each to leave. Homeless people will be paid to leave, Is Albany seeking Homeless Grants ?

I think Chico is collecting the fees and giving the money to city staff as bonuses for their stellar work in running the town into the ground. The bums are getting to run wild in this town instead of the bay area where they belong in the first place.

There was proof on the po­lice scanner Thursday, with two disturbing calls in the space of a half- hour just after 4 p. m.

First, police responded to a report of a man waving a ha­chet near the 7- Eleven store. He was described as a tran­sient on the scanner. Then there was a call about a home­less woman standing on a cor­ner wearing nothing but a bra and panties.

When it comes to real estate, it’s said the three most important selling points are location, location, and location. But when it comes to downtown Chico commercial real estate, the location might actually be a selling deterrent.
Which is a shame,” said Mike Donnelly, a Coldwell Banker Commercial associate broker.“Because that’s your core; that’s the gem of your city.”

Donnelly represents several properties in downtown Chico including one near the corner of 4th St. and Broadway. It took a couple of years to sell that property and once it did it has sat vacant ever since. And all around the downtown core it's a familiar sight: vacant properties just waiting to be rented.

Chico is becoming an Obamaville. A haven for bums and drug addicted street urchins that bring crime and unsightliness to our community. Your city council has done this to you, Chico. They love these flea infested bums more then the business people that make the community special, more then the citizens that entrusted the city to their care.

There is a solution. RECALL the bums on the city council who have forsaken their responsibility to the town of Chico!!!

Why didn't that smelly, skanky, garbage pile, mooch-el ever held up a sign that was about bettering any people in this country? It's never held up on positive note like #bringbackjobs or #iloveamerica..........
