If you’re someone who checks Humboldt County Board of Supervisors agendas Monday nights to decide whether or not to attend the Tuesday meetings, well, first of all, that’s kinda weird, but secondly, we have bad news. The company that makes those agendas available online “was hit by a cyber attack today,” according to the county, so the agenda for tomorrow’s meeting is not available through the Internet tubes.
The Times-Standard mentioned a couple of the headlining issues in a story Saturday. Namely, the board is set to ratify election results, meaning Eureka will have its first-ever all-female city council, thanks to the squeaker victory in the 3rd Ward by challenger Kim Bergel. Plus, the supes will continue their discussion about a citizens advisory committee for expenditures of funds generated by Measure Z, the voter-approved public safety tax. And they’ll get back to the issue of consolidating the coroner’s office with the sheriff’s office, as discussed at the Nov. 14 meeting.
Here’s the press release from the county:
Granicus, the company that stores and presents the agendas and minutes for the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors, was hit by a cyber attack today and is experiencing system-wide problems. As a result, you may not be able to view Board agendas until Granicus fixes the problem. There is currently no timetable for the return of this service.
The attack, which Granicus says is related to Cyber Monday, was first reported around 1 p.m. The company is currently working to add additional capacity to their infrastructure to help remedy the problem.

While the County apologizes for interruption in this convenient delivery of information related to business discussed by the Board, the Board agendas are always available at the Clerk of the Board’s Office located in the County Courthouse at 825 5th Street, Room 111, in Eureka. The Board of Supervisors’ next meeting is scheduled to take place tomorrow morning at 9 a.m.
