Pink Army Flag Raising: Florida Hospital Flagler officials, Flagler County and other governments and civic groups gather at the flagpole in front of the Government Services Building in Bunnell at 8:15 a.m. for the annual raising of the Pink Army flag, signifying the launch of a series of annual events designed to raise funds for breast-cancer research.
The Flagler County Commission meets twice today, first at 9 a.m. for a regularly scheduled decision meeting, at which the commission is expected to
approve a $15,000 economic incentive program for a private company that has not been named, and to approve the merger of the Bunnell fire department into the county’s fire services. The Bunnell City Commission approved the merger last week. The commission meets again in a 1 p.m. workshop at the Emergency Operations Center, behind the GBS, to discuss a civil citation program that would decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana. The Public Safety Coordinating Council, a collection of local law enforcement, government and judicial agencies, approved the program in limited form, but did so when Jim Manfre was sheriff. His successor, Rick Staly, is not as supportive of the proposal. To be enacted, the county commission must approve it, and it would be in effect only in unincorporated areas unless cities also approve a similar ordinance.
The Flagler County Veterans Advisory Council meets at 4 p.m. in the First Floor Conference Room, Government Services Building, 769 E. Moody Blvd., Building 2, Bunnell.
The Bunnell City Commission meets at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall for its second and final budget hearing, at which next year’s tax rate is set.
Anti-Bullying presentations will take place all day at Rymfire Elementary in the Gym, at 1425 Rymfire Drive, Palm Coast.

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.
