Amount of Grant
A grant of $7,040 will purchase a trailer to carry a chipper for trees and brush. The Butte Fire Safe Council obtained a grant to buy the chipper but not a trailer. Inmates from Butte County Jail provide the labor, overseen by the Sheriff’s Office. With this trailer and chipper, work crews will be better equipped to assist with continuing efforts to clean up the more remote areas affected by the Camp Fire while also helping to maintain defensible space as vegetation returns.
