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.

For Fire Services, It's back to the future

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.
