Palm Coast – The Palm Coast City Council meets regularly to discuss and vote on official City business. These meetings are open to the public and Palm Coast residents are strongly encouraged to attend. An increase in public engagement helps to build a stronger sense of community, increases valuable discussions, and decreases division.
A workshop meeting will take place beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, February 8, 2022. No action will be taken during the workshop. Details of the items on the agenda are listed below.
- The Utility Department will present a resolution to piggyback the Palm Bay contract with Stantec Consulting Services Inc for the Utility Rate Study. The City of Palm Coast will perform utility rate studies every three to five years. These studies are usually performed within this time frame to keep up with the changes that occur in the operation, growth changes, material cost changes, labor rates, equipment costs as well as maintenance and other factors. Based on the current economic factors changing much of how our economy functions, such as COVID impact, supply chain issues, labor shortages and the fact that our past few studies have not been of the most comprehensive nature, we are proposing a more thorough study at this time. Staff has reviewed Stantec Management Consulting in Florida and found them to be extremely knowledgeable in this field and thus the city staff recommends utilizing Stantec’s services to provide the Utility Rate Study.
- The Stormwater and Engineering Department will present an update on the Public Works Master Plan. In 2016 it was determined that the existing Public Works facility does not meet current operational needs and is deficient in safety, technology, capacity, traffic flow, and workflow. In order to continue providing a high level of service to our residents and to address current and future needs of the community, City staff will present an implementation plan for the new facility.
- The Planning Division will present a resolution approving a concession lease agreement with the Green Lion Café LLC for food and beverage concessions at the Palm Harbor Golf Club. The Green Lion Café has operated the food and beverage concession at Palm Harbor Golf Club since 2017. On April 13, 2021, the owners indicated, in writing, their desire to extend the concession lease, as allowed in the current contract, for an additional five years.
- The Planning Division will present an update on legislative priorities. On August 17, 2021, City Council approved the 2022 NEFRC Legislative Priorities which included: PEP system power restoration prioritization, Old Kings Road Phase 2 and 3 construction, and Transportation access to the west. City Staff will provide Council with a six-month progress update.
Public Comments will be opened at the beginning and end of the business meeting in accordance with Section 286.0114 Florida Statutes and pursuant to the City Council’s Meeting Policies and Procedures. Each speaker will approach the podium, provide his/her name and may speak for up to 3 minutes. Comment cards are available for contact information in order for staff to follow up with each speaker.
