To stimulate the local economy, Governor Ron DeSantis has awarded Citrus County $6,528,498 in federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES Act) funds.
The Citrus County CARES Small Business Grant Program, approved by the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) on July 14, will provide recovery grants of $7,500 to eligible small businesses adversely impacted by the COVID‐19 Pandemic.
The intent of the grant is to offset the temporary loss of revenue and assist these businesses in their efforts to recover in the aftermath of this historic global pandemic.
In June of 1991, the Environmental Protection Agency implemented the Lead and Copper Rule as part of the Safe Drinking Water Act.
This law mandates that Public Water Systems (PWS) conduct sampling and analysis for levels of lead and copper in households located within their distribution system.
Sampling and testing is scheduled for the month of August 2020 in the County’s Charles A. Black, Citrus Springs-Pine Ridge, and Sugarmill Woods PWS’ at no cost to our customers and takes only a few minutes of your time.
Citrus County Housing Services (CCHS) Division provided a $70,000 local match using State Housing Initiative Program (SHIP) funds for the Colonnade Park affordable housing development in Inverness on Colonnade Street.
The development consists of 106, one-and two-bedroom units, and is slated for completion by the end of 2020.
