STATE INVESTMENTS AT ISSUE: The Investment Advisory Council, which reviews and makes recommendations about state investments, will meet. (Monday, 1 p.m., The Hermitage Centre, 1801 Hermitage Blvd., Tallahassee.)
POWER PLANT PLAN WEIGHED: The state Public Service Commission will hold a hearing on a proposal by Florida Power & Light to shut down a jointly owned coal-fired power plant in Jacksonville. The proposal involves FPL and the Jacksonville municipal utility JEA shuttering the St. Johns River Power Park. FPL in May sought approval from the Public Service Commission to pay $90.4 million to the municipal utility as part of the deal. FPL said the deal would ultimately save customers an estimated $183 million because of eliminating future costs related to the plant. The utility also said the proposal offers environmental benefits, including a reduction of carbon-dioxide emissions. (Monday, 1:30 p.m., Betty Easley Conference Center, 4075 Esplanade Way, Tallahassee.)
CONSTITUTION PANEL MEETS: The Rules and Administration Committee of the Florida Constitution Revision Commission is scheduled to meet. (Monday, 2 p.m., 401 Senate Office Building, the Capitol.)

Updates of ongoing permitting, construction and development projects in Palm Coast usually run here, along with a link to the city’s Week in Review. But the Week in Review, under the guise of being modernized, has become flashier and power-point like while becoming less substantive and dumbed down. We may or may not link to it in future.
