    The Levy County Sheriff’s Office reports the following arrests:

  • Gay refuses city settlement

    When the Chiefland City Commission meets on Monday it will have to decide what it wants to do about former City Manager Kevin Gay's rejection of a proposed settlement.

    In a letter dated June 17, Gay's attorney Lanny Russell of Jacksonville wrote, “It is appropriate that the City of Chiefland now agrees that Mr. Gay's severance payment should be 19,541.60 after taxes are withheld."

    The letter is part of a packet attached to the agenda for Monday's meeting at 6 p.m. at City Hall.

  • Behold the champs

    The Levy County Commission presented the 1A state softball champions, the Chiefland Lady Indians  and the 1A state baseball champions, the Williston Red Devils with proclamations honoring their significant accomplishment on Tuesday during the commission's regular meeting.

    Each member of the team was presented with an official copy of the proclamation after gathering on the Levy County Courthouse steps for this once in a lifetime photo. 

    The teams were similarly honored by the Levy County School Board earlier in the morning.

  • Russell named Bronson fire chief

    It's not clear whether the free “Bronson Fire Rescue” hats clinched the deal but shortly after being presented with the head gear the Bronson Town Council voted unanimously to elevate Dennis Russell from interim fire chief to fire chief, making his title permanent.

  • Republican primaries closed

    Republicans, who now hold sway in voter registration in Levy County, will have a huge voice in both County Commission seats up for grabs in the Aug. 26 primary.

    And in the county school board elections ― which are nonpartisan races ― all three incumbents were re-elected without opposition when candidate filing closed at noon Friday.

    Incimbents Cameron Asbell of District 1, Robert Philpot of District 3 and Rick Turner of District 5 will hold on to their seats.
