The Sheriff’s daily incident reports and jail bookings are posted here.

The Palm Coast City Council meets at 9 a.m. at City Hall in Town Center. The council will decide whether to approve a proposal to replace garages with parking canopies in apartment parking lots in the city’s “urban core,” and is expected to approve on second reading a rezoning enabling apartments for people 55 and over at the edge of the Woodlands near Utility Drive, off Old Kings Road. The council is expected to similarly approve a rezoning of 116 acres north of Whiteview Parkway to accommodate a master-planned development that will include apartments.



The Flagler County School Board meets in workshop at 1 p.m. in Training Room 3 on the third floor of the Government Services Building, Bunnell. Board members will discuss renovations of the Indian Trails Middle School AC, of FPC bathrooms, of Old King’s exterior, and will discuss the Fire Academy, which was at the center of a controversy last month only because Palm Coast’s city manager mis-stepped his way to a donation of a firetruck to the academy. The board will also hear a presentation from a group focused on preventing school shootings called “Know the Signs,” and will discuss the latest equity report. The board meets again in regular session at 6 p.m. in board chambers, when members are expected to adopt their legislative priorities.

The Palm Coast Planning Board meets at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall in Town Center. The board will discuss and possibly recommend the addition of 1,000 dwelling units to the Palm Coast Park development of regional impact.

The Bunnell Planning and Zoning Board meets at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 201 West Moody Boulevard, Bunnell. Steel Rail LLC, is requesting special exception permission to use four (4) shipping containers as permanent buildings for their business to be located at 3360 Steel Rail Dr., located in the Steel Rail Industrial Park. The applicant is still in the site plan approval process. Based on the amount of impervious area to be added to the site, the site plan will not come before the Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board for approval; however, the technical review committee cannot approve the proposed site plan either because of the use of the shipping containers as permanent buildings.

    What could possibly go wrong in this crap storm of rushed spending?
