Nightly lane closures on Florida Park Drive to begin Monday, July 16 and continuing until Friday night, July 20. The Palm Coast Utility Department will be closing one lane of Florida Park Drive — a segment at a time – from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. nightly to allow for lining of the sanitary sewer system. The project will be done in rotating segments all along Florida Park Drive. Traffic control will be provided.
Garbage, recyclables & yard trash must be placed at curb no later than 6 a.m. Palm Coast reminds all residents to place their garbage, recyclables and yard trash at the curb no later than 6 a.m. on their scheduled pickup day. The city’s garbage collection contractor, Waste Pro, has recently changed the routing of some routes. With the summer heat, the re-routing will allow employees to focus on heavier volumes earlier in the day. With that, customers may see a change in the time of day their garbage is normally picked up. However, the days of collection (Monday-Thursday OR Tuesday-Friday, with yard trash on Wednesdays) is not changing. Issues with garbage service can be reported at that website, or by calling Customer Service at 386-986-2360.
FELONS’ RIGHTS DEBATED: The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments in a constitutional battle about Florida’s process for restoring the voting rights of felons. The case went to the Atlanta-based appeals court after U.S. District Judge Mark Walker declared unconstitutional Florida’s process for restoring the voting rights of felons who have served their sentences. Gov. Rick Scott and members of the state Cabinet, who serve as the clemency board, have defended the current process, which involves felons waiting five to seven years to apply to have their rights restored — and years after that to complete the process. Walker had ordered Scott and the Cabinet to revamp the process by April 26. But state officials won a partial victory April 25, when a panel of the federal appeals court granted a stay of the order. (Wednesday, 9 a.m., Elbert P. Tuttle United States Court of Appeals Building, 56 Forsyth St. N.W., Atlanta.)
PAROLE CASES HEARD: The Florida Commission on Offender Review will start a two-day meeting in Broward County that will include taking up numerous parole cases. (Wednesday, 9 a.m., Fort Lauderdale City Hall, 100 North Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale.)

‘WOMEN ON THE RUN’ PROGRAM SLATED: The Women’s Foundation of Florida will hold a “Women on the Run” event in Broward County to help mentor and train women to run for office. (Wednesday, 5:30 p.m., Broward County School Board, 600 S.E. Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale.)
