In celebration of the EPA’s “We’re for Water” initiative, Citrus County Utilities challenged 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classrooms to test home toilets for leaks in the third annual Classroom Leak Detection Challenge.
 
Twenty-nine classes from six schools tested 593 toilets using dye tablets provided by the utility. 
 
 “The students were surprised to learn that toilet leaks occur within the tank and bowl, not necessarily outside the toilet (leaking water on the floor),” said Forest Ridge Elementary 5th grade science teacher Kathy Kopp.

The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners on May 9 proclaimed the month of May as Older Americans Month in Citrus County.

Older Americans richly contribute to our community. What it means “to age” has changed – for the better. Citrus County is committed to supporting older adults as they take charge of their health, explore new opportunities and activities, and focus on independence.

Six years after calling on then-Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy to take over fire services from the county in 2011, the Citrus County Commission has called it back into the fold.

The commissioners voted 4-1 on Tuesday during a special meeting to take fire services back, after complaining they had received little or no information that board members had requested.
