Topics include the Year-to-Date Budget Overview, Strategic Action Plan and Palm Coast Aquatics Center.

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 special budget workshop meeting will take place beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, April 26, 2022. No action will be taken during the workshop. Details of the items on the agenda are listed below.

  • The Financial Services Department will present the year-to-date budget results for operating departments for Fiscal Year 2022, October through March.

  • Administration will present the Strategic Action Plan Evaluation #2 for City Council direction. At the March 22, 2022, City Council Special Workshop, staff provided a presentation that outlined Council feedback provided during the one-on-one interview sessions with each Council Member. Based on additional feedback and areas of consensus, staff applied edits to the proposed priorities and have drafted a Resolution with an Exhibit for Council’s further consideration and adoption.
  • The Parks and Recreation Department will present a year-round operation proposal for the Palm Coast Aquatics Center. During multiple City Council meetings for the past year, residents have voiced their concerns and suggestions for an improved aquatics center. As part of a comprehensive review, a community meeting was held on March 3, 2022 to gather residential interests and proposals for the future of the Palm Coast Aquatics Center. At the April 12, 2022 City Council workshop, staff presented an analysis of the current conditions of Belle Terre Park and the Aquatics Center. This presentation will inform City Council of their requested information to operate the Palm Coast Aquatic Center year round as a short-term strategy. Staff will present to Council at a future workshop, the long term strategies for the Belle Terre Park and Aquatics Center.
