    PRESS RELEASE - June 16th Meeting

    The Monthly meeting of the Citrus Springs Civic Association and Ice Cream Social was held with guest speaker Timothy Langer, candidate for a seat on the Citrus County Commission (pictured above).

    Mr. Langer related his many travels and job experiences including a multiyear position with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office as a Student Resource Officer. He continued on with what he felt were the major shortcomings of all past Boards of Commissioners. The main idea being that they were all very anti growth and failed the public by being shortsighted and not completely understanding and resolving the problem areas in the county.

    He recognized that Citrus County has one of the finest school systems in the state but that it was an ongoing tragedy because the graduating students had virtually no really good paying job opportunities in the county and therefore were leaving to find work elsewhere.

    He stated that if elected as a Commissioner he would do everything he could to work with the Economic Development Council and the Tourist Development Council to attract more visitors. He would work to bring in some national chain hotels to be able to handle the tourists needs. He also wants to bring in light non-polluting industry and especially medical facilities such as a University of Florida Health Shands Hospital.

    The meeting continued with normal Association business including a lively discussion of the road repair situation in Citrus Springs. A straw poll was taken to gauge interest in increasing the sales tax by cent providing that ironclad guarantees were in place and that it would sunset after a specific period of time. The poll was nearly 100% unanimous in favor of the idea. The Civic Association will continue working on a plan to present to the B.O.C.C. at a later date.

    The July 21st meeting will feature Guest speaker Mike Prendergast, Candidate for Citrus County Sheriff.

    PRESS RELEASE - May 19th Meeting


    Chuck Kanehl (pictured above) was the guest speaker at the May monthly meeting of the Citrus Springs Civic Association. Mr. Kanehl is a candidate running for the office of the Citrus County Sheriff.

    Mr. Kanehl spoke about his service to the country as a Vietnam veteran. He also discussed his many roles in law enforcement with the latest being a training instructor for Citrus County. Well versed in all forms of law enforcement he has a clear insiders knowledge of the current Sheriffs Office workings. He spoke answering many questions from the audience. He sees the need for a helicopter; however he feels that changing over to a much less costly version would be beneficial. He says that as far as personnel goes the current operation is top heavy with too many high level officers and not near enough patrol officers. He would also like to set up a specific traffic division and boost up the marine division.

    The meeting continued with a great deal of discussion about Citrus Springs Crumbling roads and that the Association Board is working on updating the area Deed restrictions to bring them into meeting more modern standards.

    Next month the Meeting will begin at 6:30 with an ice cream social. The guest speaker will be Timothy Langer candidate for District 3, Board of County Commissioners.

  • Breaking News on the Citrus Springs road repaving MSBU proposal!


     

    Please pass on the word to all non members about the role that the Citrus Springs Civic Association Board and Members played in defeating the MSBU proposal that would have been a major financial burden to Citrus Springs taxpayers, if it had passed.

    The proposal as presented would have imposed a tax of $20 per foot of road frontage on lots only in Citrus Springs and would not apply to any lots on roads which have been recently paved. So some would have their newly paved roads paid for from the County General Tax Funds which we all have paid in to, while the rest of us would pay an additional special tax of thousands of dollars over 20 years to have our roads paved. These are all County Roads and the responsibility to pave them is a County responsibility assumed and agreed to when the County accepted the roads as public ways from the developer.

    We won this battle, however the war still rages on. We must expand our reach to more residents.  Also let your non member friends and neighbors know how important it is to join the Civic Association so it can represent them before the county, promote the community, hold special events, etc.

    Attached is a
    Membership Form to join the Citrus Springs Civic Association, please provide a copy to all your non members friends and neighbors.
