Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Is there any information on weed control?
Answer:
Weed abatement is the same as before the fire, which is the responsibility of the property owner. The town has an ordinance requiring landscaping to be maintained so that it does not cause a fire hazard. The town enforcement officer is contacting property owners who need to take actions on their properties. 

Any Paradise resident can now file a complaint to the code enforcement officer by clicking HERE. Residents can also call Rick at 530-872-6291, extension 124, or email him at [email protected]

Question: What can we do about all the mosquitos?
Answer:
Mosquitos are a huge issue for the town of Paradise this year largely due to the fire. The Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District said there are things that residents can do to help.

Question: What is the status of debris removal being delayed by the discovery of an endangered frog?
Answer:
Cal OES has released the following statement:

"Every debris removal operation is unique and requires regular adjustments by state planning and operations teams. Due to requirements related to the protection of various endangered species and ecosystems, the Consolidated Debris Removal team is working alongside agencies including Cal Recycle, water boards, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and other to ensure Camp Fire debris removal operations for properties located within close proximity to a body of water pose no additional threat to these ecosystems. As we wait on a resolution to the matter, which is expected in the coming days, 141 debris removal crews continue to clear more than 100 properties each day. The team remains focused on the ultimate goal of conducting operations as safely and expeditiously as possible so survivors may return home."
