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 business meeting will take place beginning at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 5, 2021. Details of the items on the agenda are listed below.
- The Palm Coast City Council will hear the results of the 2021 Intercoastal Waterway Cleanup event. The 14th Annual Intracoastal Waterway Cleanup Event took place on September 4, 2021. Staff will be presenting the results of how much trash was collected, how many volunteers registered, and what was the Most Unique F.I.N.D.
- The Palm Coast City Council will recognize October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. An estimated 4.8 million cases of domestic violence occur each year and, at its most tragic level, kills an average of more than three women every day nationally.
