Nevada County Chief Executive Officer Rick Haffey announced Friday that several staff members of the Carl F. Bryan II Juvenile Hall received state recognition.
Senior Group Supervisor Frank Cook has been named the Northern Region Supervisor of the Year by the California Association of Probation Institution Administrators.
Group Supervisor II Hope Claar has been named the Northern Region Line Staff of the Year by the California Association of Probation Institution Administrators.
This is the first time in recent memory that CAPIA has awarded the same Juvenile Hall both of these prestigious awards in the same year.
The Northern Region is comprised of 23 northern California counties, including large counties such as Alameda and Sacramento. This is a great accomplishment as there are only three regions in the state.
In other news, Haffey announced that Nevada County has been selected to participate in an Innovation Academy this fall.
The Alliance for Innovation has announced that eight organizations have been selected, including Nevada County, to participate in the first class of the Innovation Academy beginning October 2013.
The eight communities will meet virtually over eight sessions, graduating at the 2014 Transforming Local Government Conference in Denver, April 13-25.
Haffey also announced that construction on Red Dog Road between Crystal Wells Drive and Banner Lava Cap Road has been completed.
The construction project realigned the road and provided all-weather surfacing.
The work, which was performed by Hansen Brothers Enterprises, was finished on time and within budget.
