EUREKA -- The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors will on Tuesday consider voting to pass on a significant increase in the cost of obtaining a medical marijuana card by making it a part of its fee schedule.

On Dec. 27, according to a county staff report, the county was notified that the state fee for medical marijuana identification cards will go up significantly on March 1.

The fee increase is a pass through hike, but “failure to revise our county fee schedule, however, could subject the public health fund to liability for the difference between the current state fee and the fee shown on our schedule,” said a county staff report.

The move, if approved, will remove specific language on the fee, and replace it with the “current state rate.”

The board will also meet this afternoon, to consider filling the position of Humboldt County librarian. The position has been vacant since the last librarian, Carolyn Stacey, left in August of last year.

The meeting Tuesday starts at 9 a.m. in the Humboldt County Courthouse. The meeting Monday starts at 12:45 p.m.
