HCAOG On The Road To Maintenance
Happy Trails / Tuesday, July 12
Emily Sinkhorn and I speak with Marcella Clem, Executive Director of Humboldt County Association of Governments (HCAOG) which has initiated research and work towards a Draft Expenditure Plan for a potential transportation ballot measure.

This would be a .5% county sales tax and would be specifically earmarked for maintenance.
