TOWN OF CHIEFLAND
TO HOLD ELECTION FOR PURPOSE OF EXTENDING
TOWN LIMITS, TO BE HELD JANUARY 17, 1956
Published December 18, 1955
Chiefland, one of the fastest growing towns in Central Florida has called an election to extend the town limits.
The election notice does not give the location of the proposed new boundaries but if passed by the voters, the town limits will be extended quite a bit.
An act was passed in the 1955 session of the Legislature allowing them to vote on the proposed extension. Both the citizens living in the present corporate limits and the citizens residing in the area sought to be incorporated will be allowed to vote on this question if they are registered.
All persons living in the present town limits who have not prevously registered can register at Griffin’s Dry Goods Store. Those actually living in the area sought to be included can register at Garner’s Grocery in South Chiefland and at Arrington’s Store in Hardeetown.
Registration books will open December 19, 1955 and close at 6 p.m. January 14, 1956. The election will be held on the 17th day of January 1956.
Polling places will be: Chiefland City Hall, Garner’s Grocery (South Chiefland) and Arrington’s Store in Hardeetown.
