Council Will Meet On Election Day

The Redding City Council will hold a meeting on election day, although the agenda is fairly light. One item would approve 110-Thousand Dollars to temporarily hire a retired Redding Building Inspector and a retired Redding Police Officer. They would help address code enforcement issues, specifically in three areas: illegal camping, troubled motels, and vacant houses occupied by squatters. Another item is a report from Patrick Jones about his proposal for a civilian volunteer auxiliary police force. The idea has met with resistance from many city officials, and has sparked a series of radio commercials exchanging jabs between Jones and the Redding Peace Officers' Association.
