Update: The urgency ordinance was passed by the necessary 4-1 with Supervisor Lovelace voting no.
The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors will consider an urgency ordinance “to Address Health and Safety Issues at the Humboldt County Courthouse” at its meeting today, starting at 9 AM.
The ordinance would make it a violation of the law to be on the grounds of the Courthouse from 9:30 PM to 6 AM. It would also make it illegal to affix signs to County property or to run string across County property. Being in response to a purported “urgency,” the ordinance would take effect immediately if passed by four of the five Supervisors.
