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, March 1, 2022. Details of the items on the agenda are listed below.
- The City of Palm Coast Wellness and Safety Teams will proudly present the Annual Health and Safety Employee Calendar. Relatives of the City Employees, 18 years and younger, were invited to participate by submitting a drawing or painting about health, safety, and workplace safety.

This presentation honors the winners with their own copy of the Health and Safety Calendar along with a City of Palm Coast goody bag for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in each age category.
