  • Chiefland says county has grudge against it

    The county has a grudge against the City of Chiefland, is what some city officials are saying about Chiefland’s pursuit of emergency services and annual funding from the county for fire protection.

  • Software will help WPD organize

    Keeping accurate records is vital to every department, but perhaps none so much as Williston Police.

    Last week, Chief Dennis Strow asked for, and received, permission to spend more than $19,000 to acquire new software.

    The package will allow the department to better maintain reports, including incidents, accidents, arrests, investigations, ordinances and activity logs. Software was bought three years ago in anticipation of the Levy County Sheriff going to the same program, but it never happened and the software is less than adequate.

    If anyone came expecting fireworks at the candidates forum hosted by VFW Post 5625 and the Chiefland Citizen, they were likely to come away disappointed. But hopefully they came away better informed.
