If you believe you provide public safety or essential services for Humboldt County, and would like to apply for Measure Z funds, you can now fill out an application stating your case. The Citizens’ Advisory Committee on Measure Z Expenditures will accept applications for funding until March 20 at 5 p.m. You do not need to be a public agency to apply for funds.
The forms ask applicants to describe their proposal, as well as their plan to sustain their proposal after 2020, which is the sunset date for Measure Z, the public safety and essential services measure passed by voters in November. In addition, the application requires an explanation as to how the request is an essential service or for public safety.
You can download the application at Humboldtgov.org/MeasureZ under "Downloads." You can also get the application by visiting the County Administrative Office at 825 5th Street, Room 112 in Eureka.
In other business, the advisory committee was previously scheduled to meet again on March 12. That meeting has been cancelled. The committee is scheduled to meet again on March 25 at 2 p.m. in the 5th floor of the Humboldt County Courthouse.
