AskFlagler Reader Poll: Should Palm Coast Up Littering Fines to $1,000?

What’s being proposed? The issue was brought up on Tuesday by Palm Coast City Councilman Ed Danko. As it stands now, the Palm Coast code enforcement has the authority to impose $150 on those who litter on city property (government buildings, parks, sidewalks). Littering fines elsewhere in town are administered by law enforcement, and also amount to $150. The increase would not affect areas not under code enforcement’s jurisdiction. Under Danko’s suggestion, the city would increase fines on city property to $1,000, and undergo a public awareness campaign to educate residents about the stiffer fines.

Where would the money go? Palm Coast littering fines go to two places: one third is directed to the Florida Solid Waste Management Trust Fund, and the rest goes to the city’s general fund.

    Before I vote, can someone tell me how many fines were actually enforced just last year? If it is a low number than the fine could be raised to 10,000 for I care, because it’s like half the codes on the books now. Most are not enforced. So in other words it’s a waste of time. IMO
