Measure U

Cliff Berkowitz / Tuesday, Nov. 1 @ 10:39 a.m. / Trails

This morning Emily Sinkhorn and I spoke with Hank Seemann, Deputy Director of Humboldt County Public Works and Brian Gerving, Eureka Public Works Director about Measure U which is a countywide measure on the ballot next Tuesday. Measure U would help fund road maintenance and repairs, trail maintenance programs, and help us secure matching funds for future infrastructure projects. As state and federal funds are dwindling, this self help measure will enable Humboldt County to keep its infrastructure functioning. This is a 1/2 of one percent sales tax increase. However, with our sales tax dropping by 1/4 percent in January, this will only be a net increase in our sales tax of 1/4 percent. That means for every $100 spent, you will be taxed an additional 25 cents.
