    Representatives of Humboldt County held the first of two public workshops regarding the county’s proposed diesel tax on Sept. 14. Humboldt County Manager Dave Mendiola, Humboldt County Deputy District Attorney Wendy Maddox, and Humboldt County Comptroller Gina Rackley presented information to the public regarding the county’s proposal to pass an ordinance to impose a tax on the sale of diesel fuel. Also in attendance were Humboldt County Commissioners Marlene Brissenden and Jim French, and Humboldt County Public Works Director Don Kalkoske. Humboldt County resident Tom Hoss participated as a member of the public.
    The workshop was in response to SB 48 which was passed by the 2019 Legislature. The bill amended the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 373.062 which now allows rural counties to impose tax on diesel fuel of up to five cents a gallon. Prior to SB 48 only Clark and Washoe Counties had authority to tax diesel fuel.
