PRESCOTT – Following swearing in ceremonies for city and county officials, the Nevada County Quorum Court held a special meeting to discuss and set the meeting time and date for the next two years.

The court had been meeting at 4:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month the last two years, but this proved to be a problem as the county financial statements didn’t always have up-to-date information for the justices of the peace for the meetings.

Nevada County Judge Mark Glass told the court it would have to decide on the date and time of the meetings.

JP Dennis Pruitt suggested meeting the second Tuesday of the month, which had been done in the past. JP Bob Cummings said the second Monday of the month would also work.

However, JP Kenneth Bailey amended Pruitt’s motion, saying the meeting should be moved to the second Thursday of each month as this wouldn’t interfere with any school activities and would give the Nevada County Treasurer and Nevada County Clerk time to get the packets ready. He suggested leaving the meeting time at 4:30 p.m. as well. The court voted 8-0 in favor of this.

Pruitt asked if it would be possible to have deputies bring the packets to the JPs while they’re on patrol instead of mailing them.

George Smith, who replaced Harold Vines in District 8, asked if it would be possible to get the packets and financials emailed to the JPs. He was told that’s not possible at this time, but could be in the future.

Nevada County Clerk Julie Oliver told the court about the county’s contract with the Nevada County Ambulance Service. She said the county’s portion would be reduced from $25,000 a year to $20,000 annually. The court will have to approve an ordinance on this at its regular monthly meeting on Jan. 12.

Glass told the JPs the only thing that changed about the contract was the amount the county will be giving to the NCAS.
