Green moves into Truckee office
Nevada County 5th District Supervisor Barbara Green is opening a new office in Truckee to help better serve her constituents.
Nevada County Board of Supervisors voted March 6 to give Green office space in Truckee, and have assigned her a vehicle to make the steady commute to Nevada City easier.
“For someone who lives so far away (from the county seat), the 5th District Supervisor is usually assigned a vehicle,” Green said.
Green has been using a ’83 Chevrolet Blazer to commute to her various meetings, but she said the county has arranged for a Subaru to replace the older vehicle. It should arrive in the next few weeks.
While she has only brought one house plant into her new office in suite 201-D of the Joseph Government Center at 10075 Levone Ave., she is looking forward to hanging pictures and making the office functional.
“Slowly but surely we’re beginning to have an office,” she said.
Green is still without a computer and fax machine at her new office. Moving in has been slow because of the number of issues facing Nevada County, pushing the new office lower on the priority list.
“Fortunately I have an office at home and at the county building,” Green said.
“I just started a filing system (at the new office). I’ve been cleaning old files and moving files from my home office.”
The office is located in the Joseph Center, right behind Children’s Services.
No permanent office hours have been scheduled yet, but Green says she plans to announce office hours when she determines her final schedule.
Until then, a recently acquired phone and message system allows for appointments.
