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.

In the absence of continued rain through the late winter/early spring, the Fire Chief may suspend burning prior to May 31st. The determination of whether to suspend burning will be made by the Fire Chief based on the fire risk.

Weekly Q&A:

Q: Does the town have a time frame when they will start fixing public roads in town?

A: The Town did a study of the condition of public roads before and after debris removal for the purpose of documenting the damage done by all the heavy trucks through the debris removal process. Now that we have that information, the Town will prioritize the road repairs that are needed, and we have applied for funding to make those repairs. We do not have a time frame yet, as we have not yet received the funding for repairs. Once that funding is received, we will make a public announcement about when to expect road repairs in the Town of Paradise.

 Q: Is the water safe?

 A: Yes, the water in Paradise is safe. The source of our water (Paradise Lake), and the treatment plant were untouched by the fire. As a result, the water is clear and clean. There was some contamination in some of the distribution system (pipes), which caused testing done early on to show contamination. Paradise Irrigation District has tested and cleared 993 standing homes as of early December and has about 500 standing homes left to test. They expect to be completed with standing homes by March 2020. As for those who are rebuilding, when a building permit application is issued, the Town contacts PID to let them know we are working towards a new home. PID in turn begins their testing and clearance process to make sure that by the time the Town issues the Certificate of Occupancy, there is clean water available at the property.
