  • Bronson will sue over junk-filled yard

    For nearly two years now the town of Bronson has been battling with a man who, as some have said, has a yard that looks like a junk yard and not a residence.

    Robert “Bob” Niffenegger, town of Bronson building official, submitted a letter to the town council highlighting complaints from five different people received over a period of time regarding the residence at 607 Marshburn Drive and a number of citations, all but the first, ignored by the resident, Jason Eggleston.

  • Bronson to offer public works job

    After weeks of discussion and interviews, the Bronson town council has narrowed down the candidates for the public works director position that has been vacant for some time.

    Parks and Recreation director Curtis Stacy has been filling in as interim public works director since January.

    Council members voted on a point system, with their number one choice getting five points, number two getting three points and their third choice getting one point.

  • Bronson breaks even with audit

    Depreciation seemed to be a common theme in losses for the year for the town of Bronson.

    Terry Kite of Purvis Gray and Company presented the audit report for fiscal year 2013 to 2014 to the Bronson town council at their regular meeting on Monday night.

    In the general fund there were revenues of $751,000 and expenditures of $742,000, leaving $8,200.

    “It was pretty much a break even year,” Kite said. “You stayed within budget, that’s good.”

  • Dear Chiefland, get a plan

    Levy County and the City of Chiefland have reduced their discussion of Advance Life Support non-transport services to writing, although it may be via emails.

    The two have been going back and forth for almost two years with the city asking to be allowed to provide the service under the county’s Certificate of Need and the county asking that the city meet standards set by its medical directors. At times the back and forth has gotten heated.
