Nevada County Auditor-controller's office honored for excellence

The County of Nevada Auditor-Controller’s Office has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in financial reporting by the Government Finance Officers’ Association of the United States and Canada for the county’s June 30, 2012, Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.

The award marks the sixth consecutive year that Nevada County Auditor-Controller Marcia Salter and her staff have received the certificate, which is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, according to County Executive Officer Rick Haffey’s weekly memo.

The attainment of this award represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management, the memo states.

The county’s annual financial report has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program. This includes demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the report, the memo states.

The finance officers’ association is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government financial professionals across the United States and Canada.

The award winning financial reports can be viewed on the auditor-controller’s page of the county website at

Design work at Retrac Bridge

Design work has begun​ to replace the existing bridge at Wolf Creek on Retrac Way, the memo states.

The bridge, which provides primary access to more than 100 homes on Retrac Way off Lime Kiln Road, is classified as deficient by Caltrans bridge inspectors.

The preliminary work includes field geotechnical investigations and surveys being conducted by the county’s engineering consultant, CH2M Hill. The project is funded through the Federal Bridge Program, and the bridge is scheduled for replacement in 2016.
