Drop-off days will be Friday, Aug. 6, and Saturday, Aug. 7, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both days. More drop-offs will occur Friday, Aug. 27, and Saturday, Aug. 28, at the same place and time.

The drop-off area will be above the Bocce Ball Court in Condon Park. Only vegetative material will be accepted.

Residents asked to return NCSO badge

The Nevada County Sheriff’s Office has a working list of suspects who might have broken into a vehicle belonging to county corrections officer Chris Stanio on Saturday. Along with personal property, the officer’s badge was reported stolen.

According to the sheriff’s office, the theft most likely does not pose a risk to residents. If anyone finds the badge, No. 107, he or she is asked to return it to the department, located at the Rood Administrative Center on Highway 49.
