  • What they did on Bull Creek used to be called “routine maintenance”, now “road improvement”. I expect the other stretches are the same.

    • the misadventures of bunjee

      I remember that too. Then for a while during the last Gov’t shutdowns, there was no maintenance at all. I’m curious why the Measure Z funds were being used in a State Park and not any number of roads in Eureka and Fortuna that are full of holes and crumbling pavement.

  • Measure Z started out as a self-imposed tax measure to support and expand Fire and Police services ONLY.
    Back Room Voodoo rendered the distribution of the revenues to ALL the bureaucrats bellying up to the trough.
    As a result, “Z” was spread too thin to serve ANY purpose. Snookered again…

    • The reason funds were shared is because research showed a police tax would not pass in humbodlt county . They spent the majoirty of the funds on prosecutors salaries and raises and promotions in the sheriffs dept .

    • I said it before the election, when they refused (supes) to make it specific, that this would happen. If they had made it for law enforcement & fire we might have a sohum resident deputy. If you have lived here a while you will recall there was a time we had Downey & Swithenbank living here. And fewer zombies
