Note: all government meetings noticed below are free and open to the public unless otherwise indicated. Many can be heard or seen live through each agency’s website.

Early Voting begins in Flagler County for a slew of local, state and federal offices leading up to the Aug. 30 primary. Early voting is mandated from Aug. 20 through Aug. 27, but county supervisors of election have the discretion to begin sooner. Flagler’s is among 24 counties choosing to do so. Though it is a primary, numerous races appear on the ballot in which all registered voters are eligible to cast a ballot, regardless of party affiliation, including for Palm Coast City Council (if you’re a Palm Coast resident), for judges, for school board and for Supervisor of Elections. Early voting hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day through Saturday, August 27, at the following locations:

1. Flagler County Public Library
At the corner of Belle Terre and Palm Coast Parkway.
2500 Palm Coast Parkway N.W. Palm Coast

European Village assault trial: Circuit Judge Matthew Foxman hears a motion in the case of Daniel Noble, the man facing aggravated assault charges following an alleged assault with a firearm at European Village in March 2014. The assault was thwarted by three patrons. The motion is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. in Courtroom 401.

The Flagler County Commission holds a 4 p.m. workshop where it will hear a presentation on a proposed Veterans Court, then it will meet at 5 p.m. for its regularly scheduled meeting, when it will consider appointing Palm Coast Mayor Jon Netts as the city’s representative to the Tourist Development Council, replacing Bill McGuire, who has resigned. That term extends to December 1. The commission will again consider appointing Troy DuBose to the county planning board. DuBose’s application two weeks ago was derailed when the commission learned he was still running for the Palm Coast City Council. He has since dropped that bid. At 6 p.m., the commission will discuss dedicating the soccer fields at Wadsworth park to the late Commissioner Frank Meeker, who died last month.

Free computers distributed to students at Belle Terre Elementary, grades 4-6, at 4 p.m.
