  • Citizens can sound off on highway pitch Friday

    By Andrew Caplan

    You don’t have to guess about Karen Esty’s opinion on a potential long-term extension of the Suncoast Parkway.

    She practically wore it on her sleeve.

    Sporting a red “No more highways” sticker on her shirt, Esty was one of approximately 100 people who attended the I-75 Relief Task Force’s open house at the College of Central Florida’s Lecanto campus to give their input on the future state of the state’s roads.

    Qualifying for federal, statewide, multicounty, county, and special districts opened at noon on Monday, June 20, and it closes at noon on Friday, June 24. Paperwork can be submitted to the Levy County Supervisor of Elections Office at 421 S. Court Street in Bronson.
