The Chico City Council meeting was more heated than usual, Tuesday night, as dozens of locals argued for or against a sit-lie ordinance. The sit-lie ordinance prohibits people from sitting or laying down on sidewalks or other public places.

Chico City Council members met for their regular monthly meeting, Tuesday night, but the meeting was far from regular.

Dozens of locals attended mainly to argue for or against a sit-lie ordinance, a local law that prohibits people from sitting or laying down on sidewalks and other public places. However, after several interruptions from the crowd, Mayor Sean Morgan motioned to clear the chambers for the rest of the sit-lie ordinance discussion.
