Measure F provisionally approved in Del Norte County

CRESCENT CITY – Del Norte County Fair fans are resting a  easier tonight. It looks like the fair will continue to get financial support. Measure F is a tax increase that will go towards funding the county fair that was in jeopardy after state support dried up.

Friday evening, it was announced Measure F has provisionally passed. It needed to pass by a two thirds margin and is in the clear by 38 votes: 66.87-percent to 33.13 percent. Because the two thirds vote is still so close, county officials may call for a recount. Certification however is expected.
