Tuesday Briefing: Heat Index to 107, Sheriff’s Ask to Palm Coast, Superintendent Search, Zambrano on Courthouses

| July 16, 2019

matt morton jerry cameron

Here’s something that’s never been seen in memory in Flagler County: the city manager of Palm Coast sitting side by side with the county manager, during a county commission meeting no less, and–as former Sheriff Jim Manfre put it, while addressing the commission, “not with a deputy between them, which may have been necessary in previous administrations.” That was the scene last night as Palm Coast Manager Matt Morton joined Administrator Jerry Cameron. The two executives have developed a collegial relationship diametrically opposed from that of their predecessors, Palm Coast’s Jim Landon and the county’s Craig Coffey.

Today: Partly cloudy. A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the mid 90s. South winds 5 to 10 mph shifting to the southeast in the afternoon. Heat index readings 103 to 107. Tonight: Partly cloudy. A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the evening. Lows in the mid 70s. South winds 5 mph.

Circuit Judge Raul Zambrano. (© FlaglerLive)

“Of great import is the definition of a courthouse. What is a courthouse? It is not just space. Although space is a component of it, it is far more than that. Many things happen at the courthouse. The courthouse is a place where grief and joy are experienced. A place where fear reigns high and jeopardy is at the door. A place where wondering what’s going to happen becomes the paramount thought. It is a place where law abiding citizens settle their disputes in an orderly fashion. A place where children are born into families through adoptions. A place where the guilty lose their freedom, but the innocent are set free; and in some occasions where the worst of us lose the right to live among us. In sum, the courthouse is an institution widely known in the community for its specific purpose. A place of judgment. “

 

–Circuit Judge Raul Zambrano, who is also Chief Judge of the Seventh Judicial Circuit, in a July 12 letter to Flagler County Commission Chairman Donald O’Brien.

Protecting Turtles

Now that turtle nesting season has started in the Flagler Beach area, local Turtle Patrol volunteers are checking the beach within the project limits every day to locate any new nests. In Segment 3, north of North 18th Street, work cannot begin until the beach is checked. If a nest is discovered, the nest will be marked, and work will not be allowed within 10 feet of the nest, as specified in the environmental permits issued for this project.

The Turtle Patrol also is monitoring the beach in the project limits of Segment 1, from South 25th Street to South 22nd Street, where plans call for dune revetment involving additional sand and plants.

Segment 1 South 25th Street to South 22nd Street):

The contractor this week also finished all work on Segment 1 with installation of the final plants.

Segment 2 (South 22nd Street to South 9th Street):

Crews are removing the old water main between South 13th Street and South 17th Street. French drain construction continues between South 18th and South 15th streets.

Sidewalk installation is expected between South 16th and South 17th streets. Roadway construction is underway south of South 18th Street.

Segment 3 (North 18th Street to Osprey Drive) Project Update:

The contractor reached a major milestone this week, finishing the installation of more than 1,800 concrete piles that will form the buried secant wall.

Crews are continuing to place the concrete cap on the piles, place sand on top of the cap and install plants. The contractor expects to finish the wall cap in about three weeks.

Excavation of the drainage swale between the roadway and dune also has begun.

FlaglerLive is providing weekly updates to the planned 15-month, $4.1 million construction of a roundabout at U.S. 1 and Old Dixie Highway. The project started in late January and is scheduled for completion by spring 2020.

The Florida Department of Transportation will be closing Old Dixie Highway and C.R. 325 at U.S. 1 on Monday night, March 4, from about 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. The closure is needed to allow the contractor to make improvements to the crossover at the temporary intersection. U.S. 1 will remain open in both directions.

In Florida and in State Government:

Note: Some proceedings below can be followed live on the Florida Channel. Most legislative proceedings can be followed through the Senate or House websites.

AUTOMATED VEHICLES AT ISSUE: Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, will speak as part of a multi-day Automated Vehicles Symposium in Central Florida. (Tuesday, symposium plenary session starts at 8 a.m., with Brandes scheduled to speak at 8:15 a.m., Orlando World Center Marriott, 8701 World Center Dr., Orlando.)

HOUSE ROLE IN POT CASE HEARD: A panel of the 1st District Court of Appeal will hear arguments about the Florida House’s attempt to intervene in a high-stakes case about medical marijuana. The House is seeking to intervene in a lawsuit filed by the Tampa-based firm Florigrown, which argues that a 2017 law violates a constitutional amendment that broadly legalized medical marijuana. Leon County Circuit Judge Charles Dodson last year rejected the House’s intervention request. Dodson also issued a temporary injunction in the underlying lawsuit and ordered the state Department of Health to register Florigrown and other medical-marijuana firms to do business in the state. A panel of the appeals court upheld key parts of Dodson’s injunction ruling. The Legislature passed the 2017 law to carry out the constitutional amendment, which was approved by voters in November 2016. But the law has faced a series of legal challenges because it includes restrictions on issues such as the number of medical-marijuana firms that can be approved to operate. (Tuesday, 9 a.m., 1st District Court of Appeal, 2000 Drayton Dr., Tallahassee.)

EARLY LEARNING AT ISSUE: The state Early Learning Advisory Council will meet in Hillsborough County. (Tuesday, 9 a.m., Hilton Tampa Downtown, 211 North Tampa St., Tampa.)

CONSERVATION FUNDING DEBATED: A panel of the 1st District Court of Appeal will hear arguments in a long-running battle about whether state lawmakers properly carried out a 2014 constitutional amendment that required spending on land and water conservation. Leon County Circuit Judge Charles Dodson last year ruled that lawmakers had failed to properly comply with the voter-approved constitutional amendment, which required using money from a real-estate tax to bolster land and water conservation. Environmental groups contended that lawmakers improperly diverted portions of the money to other expenses. Attorneys for the House and Senate appealed, arguing, in part, that Dodson’s ruling would infringe on the Legislature’s authority to set spending priorities. (Tuesday, 2 p.m., 1st District Court of Appeal, 2000 Drayton Dr., Tallahassee.)

1 Response for “Tuesday Briefing: Heat Index to 107, Sheriff’s Ask to Palm Coast, Superintendent Search, Zambrano on Courthouses”

  1. The Realist says:

    Palm Coast doesn’t need to spend any more money on deputies. We are spending millions already on top of our excessive county taxes. If the Sheriff believes we need more deputies he needs to go get them from the county commission so that all county residents can share the costs.
