Doug Leonard speaks at a community forum Saturday in Humboldt as part of a discussion about the merits of a half-cent sales tax to fund street repairs. Humboldt voters will decide the issue on Election Day, Nov. 5. REGISTER/BOB JOHNSON

HUMBOLDT ? Cole Herder pulled no punches Saturday morning.

In a session for public discussion of a half-cent sales tax voters will decide Nov. 5, City Administrator Herder was starkly honest about the need: ?I?d tell you every day we have terrible streets.?

He was just as forthright about the solution: ?It?s chip and seal, all we can afford? ? if voters approve the sales tax increase.
