Ocala’s Vanguard High School auditorium was filled to capacity for the Silver Springs forum. More than 50 people took the microphone to give the state their input.
It’s the only spring in Florida still managed by a private company. And that company, Spanish-owned Palace Entertainment, is trying to be let go from its lease before it expires in 2029.
