The Santa Rosa City Council will meet Thursday morning to formally request that the state help it clean up after the Tubbs fire leveled entire city neighborhoods last week.
The special meeting is being called for 9 a.m. at the Transit Operations Center, 45 Stony Point Road.
The only item on the agenda is City Manager Sean McGlynn’s request that the city formally ask the California State Office of Emergency Services to manage the cleanup of hazardous waste and debris from the approximately 3,000 homes and businesses in the city destroyed by the fire.
The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors approved a similar request on Tuesday.
It will be the first time the council has met since the deadly fire, which killed at least 42 people and charred 36,400 acres in Napa and Sonoma.
Additional council actions related to the fire recovery are expected to the discussed at Tuesday’s regular council meeting.
