Nevada County Quorum Court approves Juneteenth as a holiday

The Nevada County Quorum Court met for their June meeting last night. The full video can be watched above, but here are a few highlights.

Mr. Stone shared with court members during his committee report that Farm Family of the Year judging for Chance and Haley Cummings finished recently and results should be known soon. Stone also said that at the District 4-H O-Rama in Malvern yesterday, Wyatt Kiefer won in his division and JC Carlton qualified to go to State.

The Nevada County Quorum Court approved the recognition of Juneteenth as a holiday, and the hiring of part-time employee Madison Dillard as full-time until the end of the year.

An update was given to the court on the Nubbin Hill Bridge project. In spite of a slight mishap yesterday when a fiber optic cable was cut, which will be fixed in the next few days, construction is going as planned.

Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, and soon-to-be Prosecuting Attorney, Ben Hale, gave an update on the Falcon Cemetery issue brought to the court a few months ago. He said the last deed on record was from 1885, and the cemetery association is on record in the assessors office as owner and pays the taxes, so statute says it can be declared public property but will need an ordinance. He said he would draft an ordinance for their review and approval for next meeting.

The Budget Committee will meet again next week to review department expenditures and revenue.
