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 Deputy whose duties include enforcement of state laws, federal regulations, and Humboldt County Beach Ordinances. The Beach Deputy also assists with visitor safety and search and rescue efforts.

The Beach Deputy works closely with volunteer organizations that are concerned with off-highway vehicle usage.

Beginning Tuesday, March 8, 2011 through Monday, April 4, 2011, 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.
