The Humboldt County Budget Roadshow will begin making stops around the county next week, and citizens are invited to attend when it hits your town. At this interactive, award-winning event you get a chance to visit in person with elected officials and county staff to talk about your community. This year’s meeting is specifically designed to discuss the county services that are working for you, and which services need to be improved.
The Budget Roadshow begins Wednesday, Feb. 28 at Azalea Hall in McKinleyville, and includes three other stops. Members of the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors will host each meeting, which will include a series of small table discussions with subject matter experts like the Sheriff, leadership from Probation, Department of Health & Human Services, Planning & Building, Public Works, and the District Attorney.
“We were thrilled to see the community turn out in huge numbers to last year’s roadshow. The input we received was invaluable in shaping a lot of our decisions this year.” said Ryan Sundberg, 5th District Supervisor and Chair of the Board. “This is a great night for you to let us know what’s important to you, and it’s also a time when you get to learn what the county is up against. I know we’re all looking forward to checking back in with the community
