The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office is in the process of applying for grant funding through the California State Parks Off-Highway Motor Vehicle (OHMV) program.
Funds from the OHMV grant support the efforts of Sheriff’s Office’s Beach Deputies whose duties include enforcement of state laws, federal regulations, and Humboldt County Beach Ordinances. Additionally, the Beach Deputies provide law enforcement information and education regarding environmental issues and conservation concerns about the county’s beaches and dunes. The Beach Deputies work closely with volunteer organizations that are concerned with off-highway vehicle usage.
Beginning Tuesday, March 3, 2009 through Wednesday, April 1, 2009, a draft of the grant application will be available for viewing and public comment at www.ohv.parks.ca.gov. From that website, the public will be directed to the Grants/On-Line Grant Application (OLGA) public review feature for instructions on how to submit their comments. Public comment can also be mailed to:
