The Flagler County Commission holds a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. to adopt a special taxing district for the 2016-2017 fiscal year and annually after that for drainage improvements and maintenance in the North MalaCompra Drainage Basin District and the Marineland Acres Drainage Basin District. The first year’s tax, or assessment, would be $30 per lot, with subsequent years’ costs potentially higher, but capped at a maximum of $75 per lot. The meeting, where the public will get a chance to address the county commission, is to be held in board chambers at the Government Services Building in Bunnell. The county’s background on the proposal is accessible here.
