Chico >> Police were at the property owned by Ted Ball on Notre Dame Boulevard this morning to ensure that people who had been staying at a homeless camp left the location. The deadline had been extended to today, and the plan was to issue citations to anyone who did not leave. About 50 people had been staying at the property in south Chico since the fall of last year. The majority of people left earlier this week.
Shortly after 10 a.m., about half a dozen people were making their final move, pushing carts through a mud hole near the front gate.
Garbage had been pushed into piles. The owner has hired two workers who will move the leftovers to a large trash receptacle on the other side of the cyclone fence.
No citations were issued Saturday, said Sgt. Brian Miller of Chico Police Department.
