Lt. Scott Tummond from the Levy County Sheriff's Office just told the Williston Pioneer that the schools are in "secured campus" mode. Additional personnel are on the scene and schools are "functioning as normal" and will dismiss at the regular time. The secured campus mode was enacted after a violent act in Alachua County this morning and officers in Williston have ensured that both schools and students are safe.
Levy County employees will have a little something extra in their paychecks shortly: a 2 percent pay increase that the County Commission approved dating back to Oct. 1, 2013. That is on top of the 3 percent pay increase approved in June.
In a 5-3 secret vote that occurred in November and December, Williston Police officers in the classifications of sergeant and officers elected to no longer be a part of the Coastal Florida Police Benevolent Association (the union).
