November 19, 2012 - Most County offices will close Monday, December 24 – Tuesday, January 1, in observance of the December holidays and previously announced furlough days.
The furlough days are non-compensated and were negotiated with our labor unions as a way to save money during a time of significant revenue decline. The County worked hard to keep the number of days to a minimum. [Updated on November 20, 2012] According to County Executive Rick Haffey each of the furlough days saves approximately $135,000 for an overall savings of $675,000 for the year.
Closures will not impact access to public-safety and other 24-hour operations. The following Departments will be open during designated furlough days: Departments of District Attorney, Sheriff, Probation, Public Works, Registrar of Voters, Clerk-Recorder, and Public Defender.
The County encourages the community to plan ahead for needed services and to visit www.mynevadacounty.com for additional information on county departments.
We apologize for any inconvenience these closures might cause to citizens who rely on County services.
