  • RV resort gets what it needs: swimming pool

    If you're going to have an RV resort, you need to have a swimming pool, too.
    “It makes sense to me,” said Levy County Commissioner John Meeks of Bronson (R-District 1) of a request by a Cedar Key RV park to build a 12-by-31-foot pool on the 10.17 acre facility.
    Angler's Campground, formerly Rainbow Campground, on State Road 24 at Southwest Shiloh Road, made the request because the permit that allowed the RV resort's construction is a special exception in a C-2 commercial zoning.

  • Ceday Key Junior prom saved by businesses

  • Festival blessed with perfect weather

    Artists, visitors and volunteers could not have asked for a more perfect weekend to celebrate the 50th Annual Spring Arts Festival.  A nearly full moon and clear skies on Friday night, along with starting set-up at 7pm on all of 2nd Street, made it much easier for artists to get their booths up and have a reasonable night’s sleep before the big weekend.  Sunny skies and light winds with temperatures reaching into the 80’s greeted festival visitors both days.

  • County settles with landowner over concert injunction

    The property owners of a site east of Williston that was to host a Labor Day hip hop concert have reached a settlement with Levy County that would dismiss them from a preliminary injunction that halted the event.
    The Levy County Commission sought and received the injunction on Sept. 2, the day before the event was to be held, after approving the action at an emergency meeting earlier in the day. The commission said the concert organizers had not applied for or received a permit under the county's music entertainment and festival ordinance.
