Trail Safety v10_6-29

With our sunny skies and active lifestyles, Florida’s residents and visitors enjoy exploring our many miles of trails. Trail safety is important, particularly where trails and roadways cross. We all need to do our part to protect one another and prevent crashes. Whether as a motorist or trail user, we have a shared responsibility to:

1. Look and Listen
2. Obey Signs and Markings
3. Take Control of Our Own Safety

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) have joined together to put the spotlight on this important topic.

Watch this video for an important message and to learn about trail safety.

Effective May 4, 2020 Gilchrist County offices and departments will resume normal operations. We will continue with safe distancing measures and limit access to the courthouse and other county offices as necessary to provide a safe environment for our residents and employees.

Please remember to avoid congregating and practice social distancing.

As a community, state, nation, and world, our lives have been turned upside down for the past six weeks by the Covid-19 Virus. Our citizens have stepped up and we have “flattened the curve” by following the CDC protocols and the Governor’s Executive Orders. The impact to people’s jobs, businesses, and the overall economy have been significant. The Governor’s “Phase 1 Restart of Florida” order #20-112 will be effective as of May 4, 2020, respectively, Gilchrist County will begin to take steps to move forward from this crisis.

We will continue to recommend all CDC guidelines including:
• Wash your hands often
• Avoid close contact
• Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
• Cover coughs and sneezes
• Clean and disinfect
• If you or your children have signs of sickness (fever, cough, etc.) – please stay home or call your medical provider for further direction.
• Social distancing should be practiced.

Thank you again for your help in defeating this pandemic and helping support our local businesses during these difficult times. We appreciate everyone doing their part in keeping Gilchrist County safe!

Stay Safe!!

On behalf of the County Commission, Thank You, for all the comments in reference to the new rates at Hart Springs. As in any democracy the peoples’ voice should be heard and represented.

"It's Santa! I KNOW HIM! I KNOW HIM!"
We felt just like Buddy the Elf last weekend as we bumped into Santa Clause at Gilchrist Blue Springs State Park! But the reindeer aren't fans of warm weather, so he swapped them out for some mermaids and ditched the sleigh for a paddleboard!
For the good boys and girls in the water, Santa agreed to partner up with KOTS and hand out treasure that we found on the bottom of the springs and rivers. If you're lucky, you might even meet Santa on one of our next cleanups!
From all of us at KOTS to all of yours MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Huge thanks to our mermaids Florida Springs Queen and @skullsandscales for giving Santa at tour of our underwater playground!
