Citrus County government is about to embark on a process to partner with residents to develop a strategic plan for county operations.
Two community input forum events will be the start of this process. All residents of Citrus County are invited to attend and make their voices heard.
On Saturday, Oct. 16, 2021 from 9 a .m. to 1 p.m., Citrus County will be hosting the first Community Input Forum at the Citrus Springs Community Center, located at 1570 W Citrus Springs Blvd, Citrus Springs, FL 34434.
In July, local business Alexander Real Estate announced that they would sponsor a number of adoption fees for animals housed at Citrus County Animal Services (CCAS).
Owner Joe Alexander presented the check to Citrus County Foundation for Animal Protection (CCFAP) volunteers at a recent adoption event held at Rural King in Crystal River.
CCFAP has an established “Sponsor Me Home” program, which includes a fund where community members can pre-pay adoption fees for pets at CCAS. Alexander Real Estate’s donation will pay to sponsor the fees of 21 pets.

OCALA, Fla. (July 16, 2021) –The unemployment rate in the CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion region rose nearly a percentage point in June to 6.4 percent – driven in part by the seasonal summer spike, but also perhaps an indication that more people are looking for work as federal pandemic payments end.
Across the three-county region, the labor force was 213,663, down 1,660 compared to May but up 15,745 over the year for an annual growth rate of 8.0 percent.
