A Few Minutes with the Mayor


Hello Community Members,

A majority of California counties have returned to the purple tier as the number of COVID-19 cases has increased extensively. As you know, Madera County has remained in the purple tier; we have had no changes here locally.  

Today Governor Newsom released what is being called a Limited Stay at Home Order. The Governor stated, “in order to protect essential workers, high-risk individuals, decrease hospitalizations and deaths, we are issuing a limited Stay at Home Order to stop all non-essential work and activities from 10 PM-5 AM in purple tier counties.”  Please understand this is the latest news released from the California State Governor; we are tasked with the responsibility of relaying the information to our community. 

I’d like to thank the Chowchilla Rotary and the Chowchilla FFA for their community food drive they put on yesterday.  From what I understand, it went very fast, which means there is a great need in our community for this service.  I applaud all our local churches' efforts and organizations who put on food drives regularly in our community. Thank you all.  

Tomorrow is the last day to submit your favorite Thanksgiving recipe.  Check out our website; there have been many recipes that our community members have shared; it’s nice to see the community participating! 

A reminder that City Hall is closed on the 26th and 27th for the Thanksgiving Holiday, and the City buses will not be running on those dates either.   Our City Council meeting for November 24th was canceled, and the next City Hall Meeting will be December 8th, 2020.  

Until Next Week,
Waseem Ahmed
City of Chowchilla Mayor
