The Nature Coast Volunteer Center and Retired & Senior Volunteer Program thanks volunteers and sponsors

The Nature Cost Volunteer Center (NCVC) and Retired & Senior Volunteer Program would like to thank all of the volunteers who came out to the Historic Cemetery in Crystal River on Saturday, October 28, 2017 to improve the property by weeding, raking and renewing the mulch around the perimeter of the property. In total, 47 volunteers were involved in the project.

We would like to thank the City of Crystal River for partnering with us on this project. We appreciate the guidance and working relationship we have established with the City, especially the City Clerk Mia Fink, for helping plan this event.

The Nature Cost Volunteer Center (NCVC) and Retired & Senior Volunteer Program would also like to thank our sponsors, Home Depot, Rural King, Ace Hardware of Crystal River, Walmart of Homosassa, and the Citrus County Chronicle. Support for this project was also given by the Friends of the Nature Coast Volunteer Center, a group that supports the Nature Coast Volunteer Center.

Without the support of our sponsors, partners, and Friends group, this project would not have been as successful as it was. We are grateful for the support of the community who come together to Make a Difference.

Category: Press Releases       Posted By: Denise Gallagher       Year: 2017

Citrus Libraries would like to encourage the citizens of Citrus County to explore the library’s digital collection. With over 7,000 different eBooks and digital audiobooks, there is a diverse variety to choose from. The digital collection is especially convenient to those who have a busy schedule, have a hard time making it to the library, or who spend a portion of the year outside the state.

Throughout the rest of this year, the library is participating in OverDrive’s “Digital Dash” contest. If the Citrus Libraries hits 68,700 digital checkouts by the end of the year, they will be eligible to win additional funds to buy more eBooks and audiobooks for the library’s OverDrive collection. Citrus County Library System is only 12,000 checkouts away from their goal, but they need your help to get there.

Citrus Libraries’ digital collection is free for anyone with a valid library card. Users can borrow bestsellers, classic eBooks, and digital audiobooks to enjoy on smart phones, tablets, eReaders, MP3 players, and computers. Citrus Libraries also offers a variety of juvenile and young adult titles for younger readers. You never need to worry about returning digital titles, as they return automatically at the end of the lending period.

Readers can access the library’s digital collection 24/7 by visiting https://citrus.overdrive.com/ or by downloading the Libby app from their device’s app store.

Debris Removal Quickly Winding Down in Citrus County

Category: Press Releases       Posted By: Denise Gallagher       Year: 2017

Debris removal in the County is quickly winding down. There are approximately thirty collection vehicles working daily in Citrus County. Please keep in mind there will be only one countywide debris collection.

The Southeast quadrant is now complete. The Southwest quadrant should be substantially complete by Monday, November 13, 2017. The Northeast and Northwest quadrants should be substantially complete by Thanksgiving provided the present pace continues. There may be a few roads that require additional cleanup past these dates.

Debris collection on private roads should be substantially complete by Monday, November 13, 2017.

To facilitate the cleanup, we are asking all citizens to follow these guidelines:

-There will be ONE residential debris pick up, which will take 4 to 6 weeks to complete.

-Only storm generated natural vegetation will be collected.

-Please bring all storm generated natural vegetation to the curbside as quickly as possible.

-Do not place vegetative yard debris in plastic bags.

-Reduce tree limbs/trunks to “no longer” than 4’ in length.

-Do not pile storm generated vegetative debris around mailboxes, water meters, fire hydrants, next to fences, cars, telephone poles or under guide wires.

-Do not pile storm generated vegetative debris in the road.

-If you decide to perform your own cleanup and drive items to the landfill, you will be charged the normal prices.

-Storm related vegetative debris removed by contractors is not eligible for pick up.

-The debris pick up includes residential properties only. It does not include commercial and business properties.
