The Palm Coast City Council meets in workshop at 9 a.m. at City Hall in Town Center. The council will hear Sheriff Rick Staly’s pitch for five additional deputies to lead a traffic unit in the city, and the council will discuss the next annual policing contract with the sheriff’s office.
The Flagler County School Board meets in workshop at 9 a.m. in the third floor training room (3B) at the Government Services Building, Bunnell. Among the items to be discussed: An agreement with the University of Florida that would enable Flagler Palm Coast High School’s International Baccalaureate students to enroll in virtual courses through UF.
The first meeting of the Sheriff’s task force on domestic violence is scheduled for 10 a.m. at the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office Training room located at FCSO Operations at 901 E. Moody Blvd. in Bunnell. The meeting will identify work groups by discipline, such as criminal justice, social services, medical and faith based services. The groups will then be challenged to develop new ideas and strategies for reducing domestic violence. This initial meeting will identify work groups and select a chairperson or team leader for each.
The Flagler Beach City Commission and its Planning Board hold a joint meeting at 4 p.m. at City Hall on the city’s Comprehensive Plan–its blueprint for long-term development–to hear from the public. Today’s meeting focuses on housing and future land use. This meeting will allow the planning team to gather input from the community and stakeholders on Infrastructure and intergovernmental coordination. All interested persons are invited to attend. For more information contact Larry Torino at [email protected] or 386-517-2000 x230.
The Flagler Sportsfighing Club holds its monthly meeting at 7 p.m. at the VFW Post on Old Kings Road in Palm Coast. The guest speaker is Cameron Jaggard, Principal Associate, U.S. Oceans, Southeast at the Pew Charitable Trusts. He will be speaking about the plans of The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) to release draft Amendment 3 (i.e. the Menhaden Amendment) for public comment the first week of August and finalize the rule in November. This rule would be a major precedent, as it could put in place an ecosystem-based approach to managing the biggest fishery on the U.S. East Coast. Cameron is looking to better the odds of success for strong public support at hearings and in written comments by “front-loading” as much outreach as possible to recreation fishermen and other stakeholders on the FL east coast prior to early August.
The Flagler County Planning and Development Board meeting scheduled for this evening is cancelled.
The St. Johns River Water Management District Governing Board meets after holding committee meetings starting at 10 a.m., followed by full board, district headquarters, 4049 Reid St., Palatka.
