Also in local business: local law firm celebrates decade in City Centre, Bunnell considers business incentive program
Two more AT&T cell sites added in Palm Coast
AT&T customers and FirstNet subscribers in Palm Coast will experience a boost in wireless connectivity in the future. New cell sites off Belle Terre Parkway, just south of Royal Palms Parkway, and on Farmsworth Drive, between Farnell Drive and Palm Harbor parkway, will eventually improve service in the surrounding areas. These are the second and third cell sites AT&T has added in Palm Coast this year.
“We want our customers to have a great experience," said Joe York, AT&T Florida president. "With 4G LTE service, they’ll be able to experience better network connectivity while streaming videos, sharing on social media or texting family and friends. We consistently work to provide better coverage for the community and its first responders. And we’re investing in our wireless network to accomplish that.”
City staffers say other carriers may be included going forward.

Bunnell considers creation of a business incentive program
With the adoption of the strategic plan earlier this year, the city of Bunnell and the Bunnell City Commission made economic development one of its priorities. One of the objectives within the plan is to increase the city’s economic base through the development of a performance-based incentive policy.
To assist in making progress towards this objective, the Bunnell City Commission will consider a resolution that would create a new business incentive program during its regular City Commission meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 18, at the Chambers Meeting Room at 201 West Moody Blvd.
For details on the proposed resolutions and the incentive program, contact City Manager Dr. Alvin B. Jackson, Jr. or Community Development Director Rodney Lucas at 437- 7500.
