About the County:
Douglas County is a diverse community which includes three unincorporated towns. The unincorporated towns of Minden, Gardnerville, and Genoa are governed by their own separate elected advisory boards. Minden, the County
seat, has a population of almost 3,000 people. With over 8,000 in population, the Minden/Gardnerville town core is reminiscent of Rockwell’s Americana. The major employers are in the fields of gaming and tourism, research and manufacturing, government and services. Douglas County offers the facilities and amenities of a metropolitan area, yet remains pleasantly rural with easy access to all services.
The County is the fourth most populated county in Nevada with approximately 53,000 residents and seasonal populations that can exceed 65,000 due to its proximity to Reno, Carson City, and northern California.
We are a diverse community with a strong commitment to quality of life and environmental issues. Douglas County’s location within the state and being the home to a portion of Lake Tahoe, provides high visibility for business and tourism. The area also provides an excellent environment for cultural, recreational, and outdoor activities, including skiing, hunting, horseback riding, hiking, camping, soaring and other similar outdoor activities, as well as breathtaking scenic wonders, such as Lake Tahoe.
The County has a generous benefits program including state retirement plan (County paid PERS) and health insurance.
