Sound OFF
  • (Re the Monday, Sept. 14, 2020, Sound Off, “Get code enforcement out here”): I’m calling about the code enforcement out here in Citrus Springs. Some of this stuff has to be taken care of by the deed restrictions. There are deed restrictions in Citrus Springs, but the problem is nobody follows them and nobody checks on them to make sure that they’re not doing these things. You’re never going to get your value out of your property until you get people that are following the deed restrictions. ... Some of these people have got five or six vehicles on a quarter-acre lot. Now you can’t do that. It used to be in the deed restrictions that you cannot have a business in Citrus Springs. I don’t know if it’s still in the deed restrictions, but there’s people that have got businesses going and it’s not right. ... It’s the deed restrictions that aren’t being followed. I wish they would fix it so they would follow them. I don’t like it, either.
  • I read the Sound Off on Sept. 14, 2020, about the code enforcement. You have to call them. The number is 2352-527-5350. Give your name and number and what the complaint is about. Maybe they will do something. Good luck. I, myself, called on a place several times and the place is still a mess. He told me that I should help her out. B.S. She made the mess; she can clean it. It’s still a mess and they did nothing about it. ... The place has junk in the yard all over and they’ve done nothing.
  • I was just reading your Sound Off on code enforcement. If this is the case, why doesn’t Citrus Springs, the HOA, get down on people throwing things in the ’belt? I walk around and I find that the greenbelt is filled with things. When I ask people about it, they say that Citrus County tells them they can throw their waste in the greenbelt — that everybody does it. Well, I thought we were fined for that and now I’m finding all the animals really getting upset. I wish they would do something about it. It’s really a mess.
  • I was just reading Sound Off when I read (one) from Citrus Springs that’s lived there for 30 years and they have to look at garbage. I think that code enforcement should be on the ballot where we could vote for them and we’d find out how much they’re being paid, what they’re doing and how they’re doing it and maybe they could surface a little more. I would like to know how much they make and what they do. I’ve been here, I don’t know how long, and I have yet to see code enforcement anywhere, just anywhere. Nothing is being done with them...I think we should be able to see what they do and what they have not done and why.
