Flagler Releases 2018 Legislative Priorities; Vacation Rentals & New Judge Top List

By on October 20, 2017 in WNDB News

Flagler County, FL – In conjunction with Friday’s delegation meeting, Flagler County officials have released their 2018 Legislative Session Priorities.

The County’s top goals and priorities include hiring another County Judge to help cover the caseload of the sole County Judge currently serving. The County also seeks to support “home rule,” meaning that Flagler County and local municipalities can provide most of the public services to residents.

The hot-button topic of short-term vacation rentals is also on the legislative agenda. Flagler wishes to continue the compromise amendment created in 2014 that gives the municipalities the ability to regulate vacation rentals except for regulations regarding bans, duration, and occurrence. You can read more about short-term vacation rentals in Flagler County here and here.

“We want all of our residents to have access to this document,” said Nate McLaughlin, Flagler County Commission Chair. “The Board of County Commissioners works very closely with its legislative delegation to support the policies and funding that are important to our community.”

The Legislative Delegation Meeting will take place at the City of Palm Coast Council Chambers located at 160 Lake Avenue in Palm Coast on Friday, October 20. The meeting will last from 4 PM to 6 PM. You can read more about the meeting here.
