Free drive-through flu shots Tuesday

The Nevada County Public Health Department’s Emergency Preparedness Program is conducting a free drive-through flu shot clinic for the public Tuesday. The clinic is for adults, as well as kids 10 years of age and older, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or until supplies are gone in the parking lot of Twin Cities Church on Rough and Ready Highway. Participants will only be able to access the parking lot using a right-hand turn from Rough and Ready Highway.

This is a drive-through-only event; participants will be required to stay in their vehicles. Due to safety concerns, walk-ups will not be permitted.

— All county offices will be closed Monday in observance of Columbus Day.

— County furlough days are being planned for November and December, according to the Friday memo issued by CEO Rick Haffey.

In the 2013-2014 fiscal year, the county is going to again utilize furloughs to assist in meeting its financial goals, Haffey wrote. The furlough days are non-compensated and were negotiated with several of our labor unions as a way to save money during the economic downturn. By utilizing the furlough days, the county will save approximately $1.4 million in the next fiscal year.

The county plans eight furlough days. Seven of the eight furlough days will be designated as “facility closure” days in 2013-2014 as follows: Nov. 25-27, preceding Thanksgiving, and Dec. 23, 24, 26 and 27, the Monday and Tuesday preceding Christmas Day and the Thursday and Friday following Christmas Day.

The designated closure days will not affect service delivery from the departments of auditor-controller, clerk-recorder, district attorney, probation, public defender, public works and sheriff. The employees in these departments will take furlough days at various staggered times during the year. All other departments will be closed and will only provide emergency and mandated services as required.
