SCHOOL ENROLLMENT ANALYZED: The Education Estimating Conference will discuss issues related to public-school enrollment. (Tuesday, 9 a.m., 117 Knott Building, the Capitol.)
HURRICANE MATTHEW COSTS EYED: The state Public Service Commission will hold a hearing on a proposed settlement agreement stemming from Florida Power & Light’s costs in restoring power after Hurricane Matthew in 2016. FPL and the state Office of Public Counsel, which represents consumers in utility issues, reached the proposed settlement. It would result in a $27.7 million refund to customers. The refund is tied to money FPL charged customers after Matthew caused damage along the East Coast in October 2016. Utilities are typically allowed to recoup costs of restoring power and rebuilding systems after hurricanes and to replenish storm reserves. But they have to return to the Public Service Commission to justify the amounts recovered from customers. FPL collected $322.45 million through the charge, with about $6 million listed in the settlement agreement as “over-recovery” of costs. The remainder of the refund, $21.7 million, is due to an accounting adjustment on the restoration costs. (Tuesday, hearing follows regular Public Service Commission meeting, Betty Easley Conference Center, 4075 Esplanade Way, Tallahassee.)
PROCTOR SPEAKS IN VOLUSIA COUNTY: Cissy Proctor, executive director of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, will speak during a Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce event. (Tuesday, 3:30 p.m., Daytona Beach International Airport, Dennis McGee Room, 700 Catalina Dr., Daytona Beach.)
