Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Public Works department is taking advantage of less traffic in the city’s downtown area. They are conducting a series of beautification projects to include power-washing sidewalks and benches, drainage improvements, and the boardwalk at Cooter Pond. We are all looking forward to the day when local businesses can reopen to a refreshed, and improved downtown.
The City’s boat ramps remain open. However, it’s important that boaters continue to practice social distancing. All recreational boats must be at least 50 feet apart. Each boat must not have more than 10 people on board per the FWC Executive Order 20-09. The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office and Florida Fish and Wildlife officers will have a presence on the water to enforce the distancing rules. The city encourages everyone to enjoy the lakes while adhering to COVID-19 guidelines.
