Six senior degree county authorities workforce, like the economic development director, the community performs director, the assistant community works director, code compliance director, county engineer and the head of development management have still left county governing administration considering the fact that January, and the county manager will be leaving this tumble.
Whilst some degree of turnover is envisioned in just govt positions, and with the end of the pandemic new jobs are available equally in the community and non-public sectors, this stage of turnover would seem too much and seems to be an sign of instability in county govt that does not bode properly for the county as we deal with anticipated development.
When some commissioners only suggest that the fee may well have played some element, some commissioners blame other commissioners for the instability, and some commissioners are in denial, the elephant in the area is the actuality that this form of turnover appears to point out more than an enhanced economic natural environment and typical turnover.
This circumstance is all way too reminiscent of the condition in Crystal River a couple years back, when city professionals came and went so rapid, they hardly bought launched to the neighborhood right before they had been long gone. Because that time, there has been security in the metropolis council, and city administrators have had lengthier tenure.
With a additional secure city governing administration, the city has been moving ahead on many fronts, with septic tank substitute, improvement of city parks, and options for over-all revitalization of the downtown area. With a powerful group in location, the town is addressing difficulties and going ahead with producing Crystal River a far more appealing city to pay a visit to and are living in.
At the exact time, the county has stalled on various fronts, which include development of a strategic system, universal garbage, resurfacing roadways, and preparing for adjustments the parkway and new improvement it will carry.
At this issue, with an election looming and the departure of the county manager imminent, it is not probably that the type of balance that sales opportunities to progress will magically establish more than the upcoming number of months. Nonetheless, we do contact on our commissioners to do the job with each other on major challenges and to assistance our county manager as they maintain the county government collectively until a new commission can be seated and a new manager can be hired.
Once this is accomplished, we urge the new fee to fully assist the new manager so he or she will be ready to lead the county ahead with development of designs that placement the county to offer productively with anticipated advancement. We are at a important time in the background of Citrus County. We want sturdy, favourable leadership as we go by an predicted time period of expansion and enhancement so we go on to continue being a wonderful place to are living somewhat than devolving to just a different faceless suburb.
