The grant award is for $324,345 over the next three years beginning Sept. 30. The Nevada County Adult Drug Court Expansion Grant will allow drug court to expand from 15 participants to 25. Further, it will allow drug court to expand treatment options to all participants.

Auditor-Controller’s office recognized

​The Government Finance Officers’ Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to the County of Nevada, Auditor-Controller’s Office for the County’s June 30, 2015 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).

The attainment of this prestigious award represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management, according to the weekly county memo.

This is the ninth consecutive year that Auditor-Controller Marcia Salter and her staff have received the Certificate of Achievement, which is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting.
