The following story was aired on KMUD News Thurs., May 12:
For decades, southern Humboldt residents have expressed frustration over the political process, many say incorporation of the Garberville/Redway area would give residents more local control, more influence in the general plan process, more assured law enforcement services & access to local tax money. The Humboldt Emerald City Organizers Group, a core group supporting creation of an incorporated city in Southern Humboldt, will hold an event at Beginnings on Sunday, May 15, to inform the public and raise funds for a fiscal feasibility study as the first step toward incorporation.
The Humboldt Local Agency Formation Commission, a state-mandated agency that must approve new incorporations, presented THECOG founders Jim Lamport and Dan Glaser with a proposal describing the scope of an Initial Fiscal Feasibility Study, which will help determine whether SoHum could meet the fiscal obligations of an incorporated city.
