District Attorney’s Office

n Inspection needed

before move to Union Street

The Nevada County District Attorney’s Office might be closer to moving into a new space on Union Street in Nevada City. District Attorney Cliff Newell said he has been told the Elevator, Ride and Tramway Unit of the California Department of Industrial Relations is expected to send an inspector to the building today. The District Attorney’s Office had hoped to move last week from the courthouse to more spacious, modern quarters at 100 Union Street, but the move has been put on hold until the state inspection is done. If the two-story building’s elevator passes the inspection, his office could start moving as early as Friday, Newell said.
