Why was Measure Z placed on the ballot?
With $286 million in State takeaways over the past 22 years, Sacramento has taken significant revenue from Humboldt County’s budget, decreasing public safety and other essential services. If Measure Z passes, it will provide a guaranteed source of local funding that cannot be taken by the State on a temporary basis, for 5 years. The Board action to place Measure Z before the voters followed input from a countywide community survey that asked residents about their priorities for local county services. Measure Z will give the community the opportunity to address local services needs among these cuts.
