In the western quarter of the county, the landscape rises into the Pacific Coast Range where mountain peaks are in excess of 6,000 feet in elevation. Approximately 27% of lands within the County are government owned. The cities of Willows and Orland are the two incorporated cities within the County. These cities contain approximately one-half of the county population. There are several smaller unincorporated communities throughout the County (Hamilton City, Ord Bend, Artois, Elk Creek, Butte City, Bayliss, Afton, Codora, and Glenn) and other communities in the unincorporated areas surrounding the two cities. The Grindstone Indian Rancheria is located north of the community of Elk Creek and is the official recognized Tribal government in the County.
The County would like to contract with a qualified and dependable individual or firm that can provide on-call public nuisance abatement services as needed by the PCDSA. The County aims to provide timely, efficient and professional service responsive to the needs of the community within Glenn County.
