CHICO — On the day Chico was set to hand out 7-day notices of anti-camping ordinance enforcement to people living in camps at Teichert Ponds, no city personnel were reported or seen at the park.
City Manager Mark Sorensen said Jan. 12 that the city was set to hand out 7-day notices of enforcement on Tuesday given that its written notice to Legal Services of Northern California was approved according to the Warren v. Chico settlement agreement.
From 8:30 a.m. to noon Tuesday at Teichert Ponds there was no sighting of the city’s Outreach and Engagement team nor Chico’s Community Services Officers.
People who live at the park said they hadn’t seen anyone from the city Tuesday. Resident Andrew Lambach said he knew the city was supposed to be there this morning, but hasn’t seen anyone by about noon Tuesday.
Another walkthrough at 3 p.m. produced the same result.
Sorensen and Chico Public Works Director Erik Gustafson were called and emailed Tuesday afternoon. No response was met by deadline.
Legal Services of Northern California declined to comment on an inquiry to the status of the anti-camping ordinance enforcement.
