    County Institutes Curfew at Request of Law Enforcement

     

    By request of law enforcement, Leon County will institute a curfew effective from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. beginning Wednesday (September 2) and continuing each day until Tuesday (September 8) morning.

    Due in part to recent violence during protests and demonstrations in Leon County, and out of an abundance of caution, Leon County Sheriff Walt McNeil requested the countywide curfew in an effort to prevent further violence and unrest. With the request of the curfew, Sheriff McNeil intends to maintain an individual’s rights to peaceful and lawful protest while ensuring the protection of everyone’s safety and help first responders maintain peace.

    During the curfew, County residents should remain home; individuals may go to and from work, seek healthcare or emergency veterinary care, or walk a pet on their premises.

    "While we respect the right of individuals to peacefully protest, our first obligation remains ensuring the safety of our community," said Leon County Commission Chairman Bryan Desloge.

    A proclamation establishing the curfew will be posted on the Leon County Emergency Information Portal (www.LeonCountyFL.gov/ei) shortly. Additionally, the proclamation is attached to this news release.

    • County Dedicates Molar Express In Honor of Former Dental Director Dr. Edward F. Zapert

      County Dedicates Molar Express In Honor of Former Dental Director Dr. Edward F. Zapert

      County Dedicates Molar Express

      In Honor of Former Dental Director Dr. Edward F. Zapert

      Today, in recognition of Dr. Edward F. Zapert’s public service, Leon County Government and the Florida Department of Health in Leon County renamed the Health Department’s Dental Clinic to The Dr. Edward F. Zapert Dental Clinic – The Molar Express. Recognized as one of the most influential advocates for the underserved children in Leon County, Dr. Zapert served as the Dental Director of the Leon County Health Department for 30 years.

      “Dr. Zapert was tireless in his dedication to increasing local access to quality dental care,” said Leon County Chairman Bryan Desloge. “Through his service, he helped build a strong foundation for The Molar Express, which continues to provide essential services to children who may otherwise struggle to receive dental healthcare.” 

      When Dr. Zapert became Dental Director of the Leon County Health Department’s Dental Clinic in 1982, the Dental Clinic was located in a 1,024 square foot space, and staff included only one dental assistant and one dental hygienist. To serve more in the community, Dr. Zapert led efforts to relocate the Dental Clinic to a larger facility so more children could receive care. 

      “By renaming the dental clinic in honor of Dr. Zapert, we honor his lifelong dedication to public service, and we recognize the important role the clinic serves for our community,” said Vincent S. Long, Leon County Administrator.

      Completed in 2005, the new 5,200 square foot dental clinic increased the clinic’s annual client capacity from 2,000 to 6,000 and was affectionally named The Molar Express. Today, the clinic is recognized as one of the largest public health dental facilities in the State, housing five dentists, eight dental hygienists and six dental assistants.

      “Dr. Zapert passed away on July 25, 2019 after many years of tireless work to improve the oral health of children in Leon County and the state of Florida,” said Leon County Health Department’s Health Officer Claudia Blackburn. “We cannot think of a more fitting tribute than to rename his beloved dental clinic for him.”

      Dr. Zapert supported many local initiatives to provide free dental services to local underserved children. In 2012, Dr. Zapert partnered with United Way of the Big Bend as a co-founder of the Smile United Program to provide preventive pediatric dental services and dental education to children at Title I schools within the region at no cost to the parents. Today, the expanding program provides dental care to over 1,300 students across 17 schools in Leon County annually.

    • Leon County Receives Top Technology Honors

      Leon County Receives Top Technology Honors

      Leon County Receives Top Technology Honors  

      For the eighth year in a row, Leon County ranked among the top 10 and the first in Florida in its population category in the national 2020 Digital Counties Survey. The 2020 Digital Counties Survey, conducted by the Center for Digital Government and the National Association of Counties, recognizes leaders in advanced analytics, digital equity initiatives and COVID-19 response and commends counties that deploy technology practices for social betterment.

      “We’re excited to receive recognition for the eighth year in a row for our leadership in local government technology,” said Leon County Commission Chairman Bryan Desloge. “From responding to the coronavirus pandemic to finding new ways to enhance existing access to County services, we’ve stayed focused on the needs of our citizens during these challenging times.”   

      The annual survey evaluates how counties use information, communications and digital technologies to serve their citizens and streamline operations. Survey questions were asked in a variety of areas such as computing, networking, applications, data and cyber security, open government and mobile services. Hundreds of submissions were judged by a panel of experts. The results identify the very best examples of counties that are aligning technology to support strategic priorities.

      “With the pandemic, it is now more important than ever for us to continue connecting citizens with high-quality, essential services both online and in-person,” said Leon County Administrator Vincent S. Long. “This top national honor recognizes our organization-wide commitment to technological innovation in public service.”

      Leon County’s top marks this year showcase efforts in harnessing technology to respond to COVID-19, improve best practices and increase services and efficiencies. Just a few examples in response to the pandemic include implementing an online tracking tool for managing personal protective equipment (PPE), launching the “Open For Takeout” map to elevate local businesses and creating an online public comment process to ensure public access to virtual public meetings.

      “2020 has inspired innovative digital solutions,” said Michelle Taylor Leon County Chief Information Officer. “As demand for digital services increase, we remain committed to providing the highest level of service to our organization and our citizens.”

      Tire’d of Mosquitoes? Drop Off Old Tires This Fall

      Leon County to Host Tire Amnesty Days to Prevent Mosquito Breeding Grounds

      WHO:              Leon County

      WHAT:            Tire Amnesty Days

      WHEN:            October 1 through November 20      

      WHERE:           Leon County Solid Waste Facility and Rural Waste Sites      

      To help prevent breeding grounds for mosquitoes, Leon County Government, in partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, will host its tire amnesty event for citizens to drop off tires for free. The event will take place over several weeks beginning Thursday, October 1, and continuing through Friday, November 20 with social distancing guidelines in place.  

      Just one tire improperly stored in a backyard can become a breeding ground for thousands of mosquitoes which can carry diseases like Zika, West Nile and Dengue Fever. Citizens can dispose of old tires for free, helping to keep the community safe. Through the program, Leon County has collected 300 tons of tires which have been recycled and repurposed for reuse in playgrounds and other facilities. 

      Starting October 1, citizens can drop off tires at the Leon County Solid Waste Facility or at one of the Rural Waste Service Centers during normal business hours. All Leon County citizens who bring a valid ID verifying their County residence may participate.

      Residents may dispose of up to 25 passenger car tires free of charge. Commercial loads will not be accepted. This event is for tires only and no other items can be accepted. For more information, visit www.LeonCountyFL.gov/Mosquito

      Beyond Tire Amnesty Days, citizens may visit the Leon County Solid Waste Facility and Rural Waste Service Centers to dispose of tires, household garbage, recyclables, yard waste, bulky household items, hazardous waste and white goods during normal business hours. Normal service charges will apply.

      For more information, contact Glen Pourciau, Leon County Public Works at (850) 606-1400 / PourciauG@LeonCountyFL.gov or Mathieu Cavell, Leon County Community and Media Relations, at (850) 606-5300 / CMR@LeonCountyFL.gov.
