| August 21, 2014

On Medical Pot, Palm Coast and Flagler Beach Governments Are Smoking the Wrong Stuff

| August 4, 2014

Palm Coast On Red-Light Camera
Ticket Refunds: Don’t Hold Your Breath

| June 17, 2014

While the Palm Coast City Council took no responsibility for instituting a red-light camera program the Supreme Court declared illegal, the city attorney laid out arguments that could keep the city from reimbursing $1.2 million in illegally levied fines before July 2010. But the city is taking a wait-and-see attitude.

In a Stinging Defeat for Palm Coast Government, Supreme Court Rules Pre-2010 Red-Light Cameras Illegal

| June 12, 2014

Palm Coast is on the hook for $1.19 million in fines it illegally imposed on drivers between 2007 and 2010, when it ran 10 red-light cameras outside state law.

So the city may now have to pay up.

Caution: Palm Coast Will Resurface 10 Miles of Roads Spread Around 33 Segments in the City

| May 15, 2014

The scaled-back resurfacing program, at a cost of $865,160 this year, is a far cry from the 50-mile-a-year resurfacing that the city accomplished between 2003 and 2012, when all 550 miles of roads in the city were repaved. That allowed the city to take a breather. But that breather may be ending.
