Almost anyone with a little bit of free time and a sense of civil justice should consider applying to be on the Shasta County Grand Jury. The watchdog panel investigates any publicly administered and funded agency, either by their own initiative or in response to public complaints. They meet twice a month. Being a grand juror requires about 15 or 20 hours a week making on-site investigations or inspections all over the county. Superior Court judges choose 33 applicants and 19 are drawn randomly to be the Grand Jury, with the remaining as alternates. Applications are due by April 10th. Two informational meetings will be held, one on Wednesday March 25th and the other on Monday March 30th, both at 3 O’clock in the Redding City Hall Community Room.
