In Court: A trial is scheduled in the case of Kimberle Weeks, who faces five third-degree felony counts of illegally recording or disclosing phone conversations (down from 12 counts). Weeks was charged in early 2015, shortly after she resigned as Flagler County’s supervisor of elections. Jury selection begins today before Judge Margaret Hudson at 9 a.m. in Courtroom 401, at the Flagler County courthouse.
The Flagler County Commission meets at 9 a.m. at the Government Services Building, Bunnell. On the agenda: County Administrator Craig Coffey is asking that his and County Attorney Al Hadeed’s contracts be renewed (they expire in February 2019), but that this time they not be term-limited, as the previous contract was (to three years). Commissioners are expected to appoint Flagler Beach City Commissioner Eric Cooley to the Tourist Development Council, James Crehan as a member of the Airport Advisory Board, continuing his term until June 5, 2020, and Daryl Hickman as the alternate member to the airport board. Commissioners are also expected to ratify a $700,000 contract to EarthBalance Corp. for beach dune vegetation services, a $4.5 million contract for the construction of the Plantation Bay sewer treatment facility, and a $14.8 million contract to Motorola Solutions to build the county’s emergency communications backbone and replace the current 800 Mhz. communications system.
