EUREKA- The deadline to apply for a position on the Measure Z Advisory Committee is Thursday, January 15 at 5 p.m.

The Measure Z Advisory Committee will be responsible for overseeing the distribution of funds raised through the new county-wide half cent sales tax. At the supervisors' next meeting on January 20, the supervisors will select two at large members and two alternates for the committee. They will also announce their own district selections.

The committee will be made up of nine members: one for each district, two appointed by the board, one by the Fire Chiefs Association and another by the sheriff.

The supervisors are on deadline to select the committee before the end of the month, giving time for organization before the tax goes into effect April 1.
