Robbie Richmond, Barb Kimberley, and Rod Kimberley have launched Intracoastal Construction: The company has bought and is remodeling an office space at 101 Palm Harbor Pkwy, Suite 116-B in the European Village. The unit was the former home to Coconut Island, a retail store that closed last month after the owners retired. Robbie Richmond has served over 400 clients in Flagler County during the past eighteen years. Robbie holds a residential license for homes up to three levels and a commercial general contractor’s license for custom multi level designs. Robbie is also certified as a Florida Green Builder. His peers have elected him twice to be the President of the Flagler County Builder’s Association. Prior to moving to Flagler County in 1996, Rod Kimberley ran the Washington, DC office of ITT for eight years and moved to Palm Coast to work as the company’s National Sales Manager. Palm Coast was conceived in 1969 when ITT Corporation bought several thousand acres of land in Flagler County to develop a massive Planned Unit Development (PUD) community. Barb is a former Flagler County teacher and joined Arthur Rutenberg in 2003.As a former elementary school teacher, she brings her attention to detail and a commitment to customer satisfaction to every custom home they build. With her hard work and success, Barb was twice in the Arthur Rutenberg Homes Sales Top Club. She now looks forward to bringing these same skills to working with clients at Intracoastal Construction. The company is concentrating on building meticulously crafted custom homes in all the gated communities, Intracoastal and on oceanfront lots. They are pleased to have been recently selected as an authorized builder for the Marina Del Palma development. Marina del Palma is a boat-centric, gated community with resort style amenities on the Intracoastal Waterway off Colbert Lane in Palm Coast.
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.
SUPREME COURT WEIGHS JUDICIAL PICK: The Florida Supreme Court will hear arguments in three cases, including a dispute about whether Gov. Rick Scott has the authority to appoint a Northeast Florida circuit judge. The case stems from the upcoming retirement of Judge Robert Foster in the 4th Judicial Circuit, which is made up of Duval, Clay and Nassau counties. Foster was expected to leave office Jan. 7, 2019, which would be the end of his term, because of a mandatory retirement age. But on April 2, Foster sent a letter to Scott making the retirement effective Dec. 31, four business days ahead of schedule. The Scott administration argues — and the 1st District Court of Appeal agreed — that the governor’s acceptance of a judicial resignation before the start of an election-qualifying period creates a vacancy that should be filled by appointment, rather than election. If Foster retired on Jan. 7, the post would be filled by election. Jacksonville attorney David Trotti filed the legal challenge arguing that the opening should be filled in this year’s elections. Trotti tried this spring to qualify to run for the judicial spot but was denied. (Tuesday, 9 a.m., Florida Supreme Court, 500 South Duval St., Tallahassee.)
NELSON, SCOTT DEBATE: Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and his Republican challenger, Gov. Rick Scott, will hold their first debate before the Nov. 6 general election. The debate will be taped in a South Florida television studio and broadcast later in the day. (Tuesday, taping at 11 a.m., Telemundo 51 studios, 15000 S.W. 27th St., Miramar. Air time at 7 p.m. on Telemundo stations in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Fort Myers, Tampa and West Palm Beach markets and across the stations’ digital and mobile platforms.)
