[ARCHIVED] Renewed opportunity for Measure Z funding

In 2014, the voters of Humboldt County passed Measure Z to make their communities safer. Last year our community took on 15 new projects to help achieve that goal. Now, as Measure Z enters its second year, we are looking for more ways to make Humboldt County a better, safer place to live.

If you have a project that provides a public safety or essential service to our community, consider applying for Measure Z funds. The Citizens’ Advisory Committee on Measure Z Expenditures is now accepting applications for funding, and you have until Feb. 19 to apply.

Measure Z is a half-cent sales tax applied to local purchases and was passed by voters in November 2014. Last year 24 agencies submitted 46 applications for funding, and 15 of them were either partially or fully funded by the Board of Supervisors.

The advisory committee will review applications and recommend projects for funding. This process will be repeated each year until 2020 when Measure Z sunsets.

The application asks you to describe your proposal, as well as your plan to sustain the proposal after 2020. 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, or visit the County Administrative Office at 825 5th Street, Room 112 in Eureka.

The advisory committee is scheduled to meet again March 10 at 2 p.m. at the Humboldt County Courthouse.
