The Sheriff’s daily incident reports and jail bookings are posted here.
The East Flagler Mosquito Control District board meets at 10 a.m. at the district’s offices, 210 Airport Executive Drive (off Belle Terre Boulevard), Palm Coast.
The Flagler County Commission meets at 5 p.m. at the Government Services Building, 1769 E Moody Blvd., Bunnell. Commissoners are expected to approve a $5,000 increase, to $25,000, for the Flagler Beach July 4 fireworks display. “Due to the increase in costs from the local vendor, Fireworks by Santore, Inc. of Palm Coast, along with the City of Flagler Beach hiring charted buses to provide citizen transportation at no charge during the event, the overall cost to City for the annual event has increased,” the county’s tourism director, Amy Lukasik, says in a memo. Commissioners are also expected to hold hearings on amendments to the county’s animal control ordinance, and to ordinances regulating animals, natural resources and the use of county parks. Commissioners are also considering appointments to the Contractor Review Board, including the the reappointment of William Dudley and Luis Medeiros, or the appointment of Daniel Priotti. Priotti has been booked five times at the Flagler County jail since 2010, according to the sheriff’s office, all on misdemeanor charges–battery domestic violence, disorderly conduct, disorderly intoxication, and two drunk driving charges, one in 2016, in which he was found guilty to a reduced charge of reckless driving, the latter from June 7, still pending in court. The domestic violence charge was dropped. He pleaded no contest to the two disorderly charges. Priotti is also currently battling a defamation lawsuit in Flagler County Circuit Court, brought by a local contractor on allegations that Priotti made defamatory comments about the company on social media. He has also been trespassed from Palm Coast City Hall and city offices. That order is still in effect, according to city officials. See the full agenda and background materials here.

Now that turtle nesting season has started in the Flagler Beach area, local Turtle Patrol volunteers are checking the beach within the project limits every day to locate any new nests. In Segment 3, north of North 18th Street, work cannot begin until the beach is checked. If a nest is discovered, the nest will be marked, and work will not be allowed within 10 feet of the nest, as specified in the environmental permits issued for this project.
The Turtle Patrol also is monitoring the beach in the project limits of Segment 1, from South 25th Street to South 22nd Street, where plans call for dune revetment involving additional sand and plants.
Segment 1 South 25th Street to South 22nd Street):
Work is substantially completed on Segment 1 from South 25th Street to South 23rd Street.
Segment 2 (South 22nd Street to South 9th Street):
The contractor expects to finish installation of the French drain within the next three weeks. The contractor is forming and pouring the concrete curbing for the median, and building the new southbound roadway.
Residents can expect to see increased truck traffic as the contractor brings in base materials for the roadway and concrete trucks for the curbing. The curbing is constructed in two phases. The foundation is poured first, followed by the vertical face of the curb. This type of curb will add extra stability for the roadway.
Segment 3 (North 18th Street to Osprey Drive) Project Update:
Wall construction is complete. Remaining work includes placing sand over the wall and planting new vegetation. The contractor also is excavating a small swale along the east side of the roadway.
