Thanks to the efforts of Citrus County Aquatics Director Mark Edwards, and staff, an identified derelict vessel was removed on Feb. 14 from the Homosassa River.
In December 2018, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) notified Citrus County of the potential derelict vessel and later the same month, the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) approved staff to apply for grant funding from the FWC to remove the derelict vessel.
Today, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) launched a public service billboard campaign against distracted driving, continuing the Sheriff’s Office’s successful “Just Drive, Citrus” efforts from 2018.
The CCSO and State Farm collaborated on a series of billboard artworks, ready to be displayed throughout the county. The message, simple – “Don’t Text and Drive”.
