  • No city elections this year

    Chiefland Mayor Teal Pomeoy and Vice Mayor Teresa Barron won't be running for office this year.

    That's because neither had any challengers by the end of qualifying period Thursday for the election that would have taken place Aug. 5., had some politically aspiring resident stepped up.

    Pomeroy, representing Group 2, and Barron, Group 4, will keep the positions they've held for the last several years.

  • Health department testing flooded wells for free

    The Levy County Health Department is warning residents who obtain their water from private wells that the recent river flooding may have made the water unsafe. And the department wants folks to call the department so their well can be checked for free.

    If a well casing has been submerged by flood water, residents are warned to either use bottled water, or boil or disinfect all the water used use for drinking, making beverages, cooking, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and washing areas of the skin that have been cut or injured.
