Sumter County is still in recovery mode from the Winter Storm in February. Debris removal contractors have already begun removing storm related yard waste from the public right-of-way. The last day of picking up storm related yard waste will be Friday, March 21, 2014. Residents are asked to place any storm-related vegetative yard debris on the public right-of-way. The public right-of-way is the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole or easement. This area does include City, County, and State Rights-of-Way.
Any candidate seeking a political party’s nomination for any office in the 2014 General Election must file with the appropriate election commission during the upcoming filing period. Filing opens noon, March 16, 2014, and closes noon, March 30, 2014.
Well I did it again, I talked about the nice weather with 800 temperatures in February and now it is mid- March with 400 and 500 temperatures. The Azalea blooms may not survive the next few weeks. We even had ‘snow’ one morning! We did not receive much accumulation but it sure was nice to see the big flakes falling.
