Lawsuit claims lack of public input on GPU
The Times-Standard reports Humboldt County resident Keith Carter is petitioning the court to declare the GPU — which is ten years in the making and not yet finalized — “invalid.”
The lawsuit was filed in Humboldt County Superior Court on October 7th. Carter is being represented by Eureka attorney Kelly Walsh.

In addition, the suit states the “county has failed and refused to make available any citizen’s handbook mandated (by government code)” and “has used very little print and electronic media to educate the public.” It alleges Humboldt County Community Services Director Kirk Girard “grossly misrepresented to the board of supervisors and the citizens of the county the obligation of the Planning Department under his supervision to implement the requirements.”
