NORTH COMPLEX FIRE RECOVERY TOWN HALL MEETING CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 TIER STATUS CHANGE
Oroville, Calif.— Due to potential widespread toxic exposures and threats to public health and environment in the aftermath of the North Complex Fire, property owners whose homes or other structures burned in the North Complex Fire are required to clean up structural debris, ash, and hazard trees. Property owners can sign up for the Phase 2 Government Program by submitting a Right-of-Entry (ROE) form by December 15, 2020. Property owners who choose to hire a private contractor and consultant(s) must sign up for the Alternative Fire Debris Removal Program (Alternative Program) by completing an application and submitting a work plan to Butte County Environmental Health.
Due to Butte County’s recent change in COVID-19 Tier Status to the most restrictive Purple Tier, Supervisor Bill Connelly’s Town Hall Meeting, which was scheduled for Thursday, November 19, has been cancelled. Property owners in need of assistance with the ROE process are encouraged to visit the North Complex Fire Recovery ROE Center located at 78 Table Mountain Blvd in Oroville. The ROE Center is open Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm. Property owners may also call the ROE Center directly at (530) 552.3210.
ROE forms are available on the North Complex Recovery Website, www.ButteCountyRecovers.org/NorthComplex . Printed ROE forms are available at the Butte County Library Oroville Branch located at 1820 Mitchell Ave., in Oroville.
