flagler county commission government logoThe Flagler County Commission meets at 5 p.m. at the Government Services Building, 1769 E Moody Blvd., Bunnell. Commissoners are expected to approve a $5,000 increase, to $25,000, for the Flagler Beach July 4 fireworks display. “Due to the increase in costs from the local vendor, Fireworks by Santore, Inc. of Palm Coast, along with the City of Flagler Beach hiring charted buses to provide citizen transportation at no charge during the event, the overall cost to City for the annual event has increased,” the county’s tourism director, Amy Lukasik, says in a memo. Commissioners are also expected to hold hearings on amendments to the county’s animal control ordinance, and to ordinances regulating animals, natural resources and the use of county parks.

Commissioners are also considering appointments to the Contractor Review Board, including the the reappointment of William Dudley and Luis Medeiros, or the appointment of Daniel Priotti. Priotti has been booked five times at the Flagler County jail since 2010, according to the sheriff’s office, all on misdemeanor charges–battery domestic violence, disorderly conduct, disorderly intoxication, and two drunk driving charges, one in 2016, in which he was found guilty, the latter from June 7, still pending in court. The domestic violence charge was dropped. He pleaded no contest to the two disorderly charges. Priotti is also currently battling a defamation lawsuit in Flagler County Circuit Court, brought by a local contractor on allegations that Priotti made defamatory comments about the company on social media. He has also been trespassed from Palm Coast City Hall and city offices. That order is still in effect, according to city officials.
