Candace J Grubbs, Butte County Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters wants to help voters who have been impacted by the Camp Fire understand how to update your Voter Registration record.

When voting, your residence address determines the contests that appear on your official ballot.  Your mailing address is where we mail your voting materials, which is important because election mail cannot be forwarded to you, it is returned back to the County.  You may only be legally registered in one county.  See the attached fact sheet for more information.

Our regular hours are Monday thru Thursday from 8 am to 5 pm. To better serve our citizens who are rebuilding, the Building Department will be the only department open on Friday for permits and inspections from 8 am to 5 pm.

  • Weekly Q&A:
  • Q: What is the process for water flow reports for mandated residential fire sprinkler systems?:
  • A:  This is the process for fire flows for rebuilding in the Town of Paradise:
  •              Residential Site-Built Rebuilds 
  • Applicants will submit directly to PID on PID’s own application form and pay the adopted PID fire flow fees.

Manufactured Home Installations/Replacements:

  • Applicants will submit to Fire Station 81 on the standard fire flow form and pay the adopted fire flow fees;
  • Upon completion, FD will continue to email a copy of the fire flow to town hall staff.
    • If fire sprinklers are required (because of flow or distance), the applicant(s) will need to make a subsequent submittal to PID for their fire flow to size the sprinklers.

New Construction on Unaffected Vacant Lots:

  • Applicants will submit to both Fire Station 81 and PID on their respective application forms and pay the adopted fire flow fees to each agency.

Q: Is there a way to report open spaces that residents feel need maintenance?

A: Paradise residents can report properties that need fuel reduction to the Town’s Code Enforcement Officer through TOP Access. You can get the app through Google Play or the App Store, or you can access it online here: Residents can also report by phone at (530) 872-6291 x124.

Q: What’s going on with standing burnt trees?

A:   Trees remain a top priority for the Town of Paradise. For trees in the public right of way, the Town has identified about 4,000 trees that will be removed over the next 4-8 months. For trees on private property, the Town is still working with our recovery partners, Cal OES and FEMA, on a program that would help with the cost of removal. Butte County Fire Safe Council is also applying for grants that will help property owners offset the cost to remove trees on private property. As soon as these programs are confirmed, the Town will make the information about how to apply available. 


On May 22, 2019 Ordinance No. 578 was passed and adopted by the Town Council of the Town of Paradise.
