On Saturday, April 24, 2021 the City of Flagler Beach will provide our community with the opportunity to take advantage of City services at one (1) centralized location from 10:00 a.m. to2:00 p.m. “Super Spring Saturday” will provide our community with the following services that will be conducted at the Flagler Beach Police Department, 204 South Flagler Avenue;
- Prescription Drug Take Back Day
- Golf Cart Inspections and Registration Payment
The Flagler Beach Police Department, in support of “National Prescription Drug Take Back Day”, will be collecting unused or expired prescription medications for safe disposal. The Police Department is located at 204 South Flagler Avenue, one (1) block south of SR100 on the east side of the Moody/SR100 Bridge. This one (1) day event will provide residents and/or visitors with a no cost, anonymous collection of unwanted and/or expired medicines. This initiative is a collaboration between your local Police Department and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). We do not accept needles, or fluids.
In addition to the community service above, we’ll also be conducting golf cart inspections in the front parking lot of the Police Department from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. In order to streamline the event registration process, a member of our City Finance Department will be at the Police Department to collect payment for Golf Cart Registrations. Golf Cart Registrations are $40 and payments can be made with cash or check; no credit cards.
Flagler Beach Police Chief Matt Doughney stated “Combining National Prescription Take Back Day with the golf cart registration event was a collaborative effort with our newly elected Mayor, Suzie Johnston. Having both events on a Saturday in the Spring was a Super idea and I believe a great benefit to our community”.
Flagler Beach Mayor Suzie Johnston stated “I’m excited about our City offering Prescription Pill Pickup for our residents and having a special Saturday golf cart registration to accommodate those that are busy during the week.”
Lastly, we understand that COVID-19 has adversely affected many members of our community and we’re proud to offer an additional service for the prescription drug take back event. Any Flagler Beach resident that is ill or cannot leave their home for any reason, can call and make arrangements for their prescription donation to be picked up by Chief Doughney on Saturday, April 24, 2021.
Flagler Beach residents can call (386) 517-2020 and provide our Records Clerk with their name, address, phone number and a convenient time between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. for Chief Doughney to stop by and pick up their donation. Reservations for pickup on April 24, 2021 will be taken effective today through Friday, April 23, 2021 at 5:00 p.m.
Chief Doughney concluded by stating “We’re a small Police Department with big hearts and I can’t think of a better way to show our community how much we care about them. It’s an honor and a privilege to “Protect & Serve” such a wonderful community, and on April 24th we’ll be serving our residents and visitors in a super way”.
