Each month, the Citrus County PetMeals Program provides food to the companion pets of senior homebound clients who receive Meals on Wheels.
We are in great need of unopened bags of cat and dog food at this time.
The PetMeals program began when a very thin man receiving Meals on Wheels was only taking small bites of his food and then placing his food tray on the floor for a very overweight Chihuahua to finish the meal. When asked why he was doing this, he stated he did not have the money to buy dog food any longer and that he would rather go hungry than not feed his beloved pet.
Construction was recently completed for the County resurfacing project on Citrus Springs Blvd from US41 to Withlacoochee Trail (C39), 1.4 miles.

The bid amount for the project was $970,546 and the project was completed on time and within the allocated budget.
