Goloff takes medical leave

City Council grants her some time off

Chico City Councilwoman Mary Goloff has requested and received a leave of absence from her council post for unspecified medical reasons. She was not present at the council’s meeting Tuesday (March 20) and will miss meetings on April 3 and 17.

The city charter requires that any council member who misses more than two consecutive meetings without obtaining leave from the council be dismissed from office.

In an effort to be prepared in case Goloff needs more time off, the council voted 6-0 to grant her leave through April 18 and to agendize a possible extension for the May 1 meeting.
