Commission tackles city’s future

Plans for Levy County water authority dashed

By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

A recent letter by City of Chiefland to Levy County officials expressing interest in forming a countywide water authority has found its way to the proverbial trash bin, according to city commissioners.

“They did not respond to my letter,” said Chiefland Mayor Teal Pomeroy.

“Levy County having its own GUA (government utility authority) is not going to work.”

Though Pomeroy declined to answer why the proposed water authority would not work, or from whom he had learned the information, he did express his concerns over the possibility of the county joining the one already in existence—the Nature Coast Regional Water Authority.

“If Levy County joins the GUA, that will be a vote for transplanting water out of Levy County,” Pomeroy said.

Pomeroy also stated some Levy County commissioners claim joining the Nature Coast authority will be good for area agriculture.

“This is good for agriculture in Dixie County and Gilchrist County,” he said.  “They want the water because it's some of the finest water in the state … no cost as far as treatment.”
