The arbitration hearing was held at the Sumter County Courthouse in the historic courtroom during the week of February 20-24th. Three arbitrators heard the considerations from both SECO and the City on the purchase option valuation for the service territory that SECO currently serves inside the city limits. It will take some time for the arbitrators to go over all the information, and determine a fair market value. Once this occurs, the City will then be able to do a firm cost vs. benefit analysis to see if exercising the purchase option is a good decision for the City. The findings and subsequent decision will be discussed with Bushnell City Council in a public meeting.

Typically, the agendas are available one week before the public meeting. If you have questions regarding this information, contact Susan Noell or Bruce Hickle at 352-793-2591.

Every year the City of Bushnell teams up with the Children's Home Society and places an Angel Tree in the lobby of City Hall. This allows the community to help grant Christmas wishes to less fortunate children in the community. This year the support and out-reach from the community was overwhelming! Many citizens throughout Bushnell came to pick their special child or children to make their Christmas bright. Sumter Oaks RV Park took 12 of the children and provided gifts for all of them! The community was so gracious that along with the 40 names on the tree, we also sent out 6 very large boxes of extra toys so no one was forgotten.

A huge THANK YOU TO THE COMMUNITY and a very Merry Christmas!

The Arbitration Hearing, to determine the purchase cost of the SECO electric system inside the city limits, has been postponed, due to an unavoidable delay, until a future date in early 2017.  The purpose of the arbitration is to decide the appropriate value of the SECO electric system, inside the Bushnell City Limits only, so that the City can do a cost benefit analysis to determine if this purchase is a good decision for the future of Bushnell’s citizens.
