About Nevada County: Established in 1851, historic Nevada County encompasses 974 square miles and includes the Town of Truckee, cities of Grass Valley and Nevada City, the County Seat. Residents enjoy a rural lifestyle with urban amenities (hospital, community college, thriving arts culture) and are only an hour from the State Capital and international airport. Nevada County is located in the foothills of the Western Slope of the Sierra Nevada, with access to a variety of recreational and cultural activities.

Recreational Opportunities: Nevada County offers many activities for the outdoor enthusiast. The area boasts two important state parks and acres of trails for hiking, mountain biking, or horseback riding. Nearby lakes are available for boating, swimming, and fishing. The Yuba River has many natural swimming holes, hiking trails, and, during spring runoff, attracts avid kayakers. Hike among the mountain wildflowers and breathtaking scenery at Donner Summit. Downhill and cross-country skiing is within a 45-minute drive of the County Administrative Center.

It features art galleries, live theatre venues, museums, historic buildings, fine dining, quaint bed and breakfast establishments, and award-winning wineries. During the holiday season, Nevada City and Grass Valley play host to Victorian and Cornish Christmas, a tribute to their rich past. Visitors wishing to learn more about the County’s history may visit GoNevadaCounty.com.

County Governance and Organization Structure: Nevada County is governed by a five-member Board of Supervisors elected on a non-partisan basis to serve four-year terms. The Board of Supervisors is the legislative and executive body of County government and also serves as the governing body of the Nevada County Sanitation District. Agency Directors report to Alison Lehman, County Executive Officer. The County budget for FY 2018-2019 is $235.7 million with a current staff of approximately 800 employees. Nevada County leads all counties in CSAC credentialed executives and innovation awards.

We strive to be an employer of choice through active engagement with employees, development of programs that both support employees and align with Board of Supervisors' strategy, and the creation of a culture that fosters innovation.
