It has become financially impossible for the Arco Butte Business> Incubation Center, Inc. to continue to operate the business center building. Furthermore, Butte County feels the need for additional county office space.

On October 1st, Butte County will assume responsibility for all operations of the business center building.
Please direct any invoices for materials or service that are rendered to the business center building on October 1, 2020 or beyond to the Butte County Clerk.
