The Palm Coast City Council meets in workshop at 9 a.m. at City Hall in Town Center. Council members will get a presentation on the city’s updated 10-year capital improvement plan, a presentation on a “downtown innovation district” for Town Center, and another presentation on “keeping Palm Coast clean and green.” The council will also discuss approval of a lease with a telecommunications tower company at 1505 Palm Harbor Parkway.
The St. Johns County School Board meets in workshop to discuss what St. Johns Sheriff David Shoar says is a $3.5 million deficit in the plan to meet the state requirement that there be at least one law enforcement officer in every school. There are just 15 deputies in St. Johns County’s 40 schools currently, with the school district and the sheriff splitting the $1.4 million cost. Flagler County appears to be moving closer to a resolution, with fewer financial differences between the school district and the sheriff’s office, on placing a deputy in each school at a cost of $1.8 million, more than two and a half times the current cost. The St. Johns School Board meets at 8:30 a.m. at 40 Orange Street in St. Augustine.

The Online auction to benefit the G.W. Carver Center in Bunnell is now open. Art Work, Local Experiences, Restaurant Gift Cards, Baskets, FCYC Summer Camp Registration & Trip Specials, Window Cleaning, Kayaking Tour, Furniture, World Wide Time Share, Camping Rentals, and the list goes on and on. The purpose of the auction is to raise money to go back into the development of the Carver Center. The Flagler County School Board and Flagler County Government have both owned and managed the facility over the years. Due to budgetary constraints it appeared it would be necessary to close the facility in 2010. A coalition was born to save the Gym and restore it as a community center. Our foundation was created to serve this facility with grant funding and equipment/supply needs. In order to participate in this auction you must register for a bidder account here. On the last day of the auction if a bidder submits a bid in the last 3 minutes before auction closes that item will extend for another 3 minutes and that process will repeat for up to a half hour the official close. Go bid here. If you have any questions please contact us via email at [email protected]
