Today at the Editor’s glance: The Flagler County School Board meets in workshop to go over its meeting agenda later this month. The meeting is in the third-floor conference room at the Government Services Building, 1769 East Moody Boulevard, Bunnell. The board will hear a presentation on teacher raises: As part of the 2021-22 budget released form the state, the plan will be implemented for the school district to maintain the minimum base teacher salary of $47,500 that was achieved in 2020-21. State allocations included $2.4 million for this purpose. The Palm Coast City Council meets at 6 p.m. at City Hall. Council members will approve next year’s cultural arts grants totaling $30,000. The council will also ratify an amendment to the city’s contract with the Sheriff’s Office to reflect the additional payment for 10 more deputies. For the full agenda, go here.
