It has been a good year for Levy County in the courts County Attorney Anne Bast Brown told the Board of Commissioners in its regular Tuesday morning meeting.

Brown, who presented her annual report, summed it up with, "We had a pretty good year."

The legal staff handled 692 files in the past year. She said 226 represent open and ongoing work, while another 286 are legal request files. Of that number, she said 180 were opened in the year ending Aug. 31 and an equal number were closed.

Legal requests are for items such as proclamations, ordinances, zoning and land use applications , legal opinions, and administrative proceedings and other county business.

Brown said the county had "three major cases which were brought to final decision in favor of the county.

In the case of Van Horn versus the county, a dispute over a citizen's property rights to operate a junkyard, Brown said, "For minimal cost the county was able to secure a favorable result."

The Morrispring Natural Water Corp. case was an appeal of a board decision on a water bottling operation that has been upheld through two levels of appeal review.
