Tea Party: Give residents voice on City Hall

by: Andrew OBrien Contributing Writer

Tea Party members held their monthly meeting June 21, which featured State Rep. Bill Proctor, who discussed the state’s budget and this year’s legislative session. (Read about that here.)

Also discussed at the meeting were the financial issues that are currently taking place within the Palm Coast City Council, Flagler County Board of County Commissioners, and the Flagler County School Board.

Earlier in the day, Vince Ligouri presented about 540 petitions to the Palm Coast City Council at its June 21 meeting, in regard to the rumored new Palm Coast City Hall.

Ligouri stressed that the Tea Party is not against the city building a new City Hall, but that they want the residents of Palm Coast to be able to make an informed decision.

However, Palm Coast Mayor Jon Netts said there’s nothing brewing on the City Hall front.

“The desire is there for there to be an informed decision by the public,” Netts said at the City Council meeting. “Right now, we don’t have anything to present. The project is on hold.”

Palm Coast City Manager Jim Landon confirmed Netts’ statement.

“I’ve heard the message loud and clear that now is not the right time,” Landon said. “City Council’s direction has been to change the focus onto Prosperity 2021.”
