A Special Columbia County Commissioner Meeting is being held on:

Date:  Sept 11, 2014

Time:    7 p.m.

Where:   Columbia County School Board Offices, Hwy 90, Lake City, Florida

Skunkie Acres Inc., is a 501c3 Animal Rescue for Exotic, Raptors, Livestock and WIldlife.  100% of your Donations and the Horseback Riding supports our animal rescue that serves all of Columbia, Hamilton, and Suwannee Counties and also other areas of Florida and southern Georgia.   

This is a Public Meeting for a Special Exemption for 21 acres on Lake Jeffery Road in Lake City that Skunkie Acres has recently acquired.

We cannot continue our animal rescue without adding a special exemption for the Animal Rescue and Horseback Riding.  Your generous Donations and the Horseback Riding supports our Animal Rescue.

The Columbia County Commissioners have long stated that we needed to relocate to a larger parcel to continue, which we are in the process of doing.  However, we need your support to help us get the special exemption for this 21 acre parcel from the Columbia County Commissioners.

Please attend this meeting and help show your support for Skunkie Acres.  If you cannot attend then please show your support by calling and emailing your support to the Columbia County Commissioners and the County Manager, Mr. Dale Williams.
