Announcements:

Twenty-four Palm Coast residents graduated this month from the Palm Coast Citizen’s Academy, a comprehensive program designed to educate interested residents about the operation and workings of their City government. The graduating class – the 42nd in the program’s history – spent five weeks learning about City departments and visiting City Hall, main Fire Station 25, and Water Treatment Plant No. 3. The class also attended a Palm Coast City Council meeting together. City Manager Jim Landon kicked off the Citizen’s Academy with an opening session titled, “Governing the City,” providing background on Palm Coast’s incorporation, City Charter, the Council-Manager form of government, and overall information about the City. Participants in the Citizen’s Academy received an overview on every City department and met City Council members, department directors and many other City employees. Mayor Milissa Holland did a presentation on development projects – both public and private – currently under way in Palm Coast. This session’s graduates were Joseph Benincasa, Martha Butler, Katherine Curtis, Danny Danforth, Sharon Danforth, Lisa D’Andrea, Virginia Elgin, Gertrude Hannah, Bertha Harrison, Ryan Kendall, Emily Kirshaw, William Mania, Cindi Marcuccio, Mike Marcuccio, Tina Mongiardo, Becky Osgood, Tom Osgood, Ketia Silveira, James Smeaton, Sally Smeaton, Betty Wiersma, Dale Wiersma, Debby Winans and Mike Winans. The Citizen’s Academy meets once a week, usually on Monday evenings, for five straight weeks. The course is free and registration is limited to approximately 30 Palm Coast citizens per session.
