After a strong candidate recruitment with Ralph Andersen & Associates, the Nevada County Board of Supervisors has appointed Katherine Elliott as Nevada County's County Counsel effective November 1st, 2019.

"The Board is excited to announce Ms. Elliott as our next County Counsel," said Board of Supervisors Chair and District V Supervisor Richard Anderson. "We had a successful interview process during our closed meeting earlier this month and believe she will be a great fit for the organization."

County Counsel provides professional legal services and advice to the Board of Supervisors, the County Executive Office, County departments, special districts, and commissions on civil and administrative legal matters. The position serves a term appointment by the Board of Supervisors and works collaboratively with County Executive Officer, Alison Lehman.

"County Counsel plays an important role in local government as they are responsible for drafting and reviewing resolutions, ordinances and agreements," said County Executive Officer Alison Lehman. "Ms. Elliot brings a skillset and experience that will serve our County and Board well as we continue to make progress on community priorities."

While in Mendocino County, Ms. Elliott oversaw the adoption and implementation of the County's cannabis ordinances including cultivation, dispensaries and taxes. In addition, she advised the County on the creation of protocols and resolutions in response to several wildfire events and managed a similar sized office.

"Coming from another rural California County, I'm looking forward to jumping right in on Board Priorities like wildfire and cannabis," said Ms. Elliott. "My husband and I both enjoy working and being a part of rural communities like Nevada County, and are excited to start enjoying the arts, outdoor recreation and community Nevada County offers."

County Counsel is an office that oversees 7 employees with approximately a 1.5 Milllion dollar budget. Alison Barrett-Green is retiring effective November 1st, 2019, after 9 years of service in Nevada County.
