Learn from Native Plant Landscaping Project

On June 21, I joined the UF/IFAS Hernando County Extension’s Dr. William Lester, Lawn & Garden/Master Gardener Coordinator; Lily Browning, with Florida-Friendly Landscaping, and Master Gardener volunteer Alice Smith, where I learned about their native plant landscaping project that took place at the UF/IFAS Hernando County Extension office. The goal for this project was to replace the landscape in front of the UF/IFAS Hernando office with all Florida native plants.

Employee Compensation Plan Adopted

The Brooksville City Council adopted an employee compensation plan which calls for salary increases for 64 employees to bring their salaries in line with surrounding cities and municipalities. 

The city’s HR Administrator Kimberly Price completed an employee compensation study as the basis of the plan in efforts to “reduce turnover costs and promote growth.”
