The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office has been receiving complaints from private property owners in the Kneeland-Greenwood Heights area due to low snow levels. The Sheriffs Office and property owners would like to remind snow seekers that Kneeland is primarily all private property, and deputies are issuing misdemeanor citations for trespassing.
