Weaknesses

 

Deteriorating Streets and Roads with potholes because Town officials used Local Option Fuel Taxes on legal expenses, salaries, an excavator which is not defined as “Transportation” equipment, paying an employee who was unable to work for two years, etc

Town officials will not act on Citizen complaints 

Misused Money in all areas of the Town

 

Town stopped our Swap Meets which was an event for all citizens and vendors

Town is noted for Drugs and Corruption

High Sewer Rates with additional Water Rates which are a poor incentive for new businesses

Poor Water and Sewer infrastructure

Many vacant and dilapidated buildings and lots

Unkempt lawns and swales

Many buildings deteriorating on 41

Low income and impoverished people

No actual  Fire Department certified firefighters in Town

Police Department Chief and Department has been neutered by Rhett Bullard and will not protect citizens against theft and crime.  Must depend upon the Sheriff’s office

No adherence to Land Development Regulations and only a part-time code enforcement officer with little experience

Employees paid to not work and budgets are unrealistic

Only friends of Rhett Bullard are offered Jobs for the Town of White Springs

If a business comes in like Savan’s liquor Store the Town will attempt to fleese them out of additional money to make changes which are unrealistic, but expensive.

 

Opportunities

 

With Town Fathers who really gave a damned working with Hamilton County to bring in Businesses by providing incentives:

We could again start swap meets where the Town was not involved or did not charge money to vendors.

We could have a viable Fire Department with firefighters within a five mile radius if Steve Stith was fired as Chief and Andrew Greene removed from the Fire Department in all capacity.

Get a strong police department and a new chief which believes in actual police work

Search  for businesses that may wish to White Springs such as mixing agriculture with business ventures:

Black Bay could hook up with a wholesale meat and seafood facility and/or agricultural facilities to provide such things as beef, chicken, pork, lamb, shrimp, crab and lobster for sale to customers

A winery where grapes are grown locally

Hydroponic vegetables and tomatoes plant and distributor

A Waterpark across from the Library

A Farmers Market

A Farmers Butchering Market

 

Horseback Riding Trails

Do Jo’s Martial Arts

Being Near to I-75 and I-10, Distribution Plants such as DigiKey, Amazon, and others which are not currently in Ocala or other large cities.
